Episode 150 – Ten games from glory

New

With just ten games of the season remaining, the Championship promotion race looks set to be one of the most exciting of all time, with the top five clubs separated by just one single point. Incredible.

In fact eight clubs still realistically have their eyes on a place in the Premier League next season, including Steve McClaren’s Derby County, who blew a 2-0 lead in injury time against Birmingham at the iPro on Saturday, dropping two valuable points in the process.

The boys catch up with Steve Nicholson, chief football writer at The Derby Telegraph, to find out more about a difficult week for the Rams, plus preview their tricky looking run in.

We’re also joined by Mark O’Haire, the founder of We Love Betting, to look at the games still to face their rivals Bournemouth, Watford, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Ipswich, Brentford and Wolves. We ask, who’s got the bottle to handle the pressure?

Elsewhere, Dave Whelan steps down as Wigan chairman, Tony Mowbray is back in football as the new Coventry manager, and the scrap for play-off places in Leagues One and Two hots up…

Plus, as it’s our 150th episode, we play out some of our best bits from the past three and a half years!
