Brentford , Exeter and Wycombe confirmed

Three sides we have played in Cup competitions in recent years have been promoted from League Two and will play us next season. Battling to join them via the play-offs are Gillingham and Rochdale, another two Cup opponents in recent years. Shrewsbury or Bury are also in the hunt but I hope the Dale or the Gills make it; Rohcdale because their history of failure has been so long and so appalling, and the Gills because it's we owe them a couple of good hidings to atone for that miserable 3-2 F A Cup defeat.

Personally, I hope Millwall make it out of League One. Largely so we don't have to play them next season and also because I think they deserve it. Kenny Jackett's done a great job on peanuts and, let's face it, they will be heading back down again very soon. We've just got to hope we time our promotion right so it coincides and we can maintain this glorious run of not having played them.

I am really looking forward to today's match and only hope our players don't manage a final disappointment by handed Norwich the game on a plate. I am not sure I could cope with 3000 mocking Canaries should the unlikely happen and they stay up.

A a final note, it was sad to see Ricky Hatton laid unconscious on the canvas in Las Vegas in the early hours. He was well beaten again and surely the time has come for this honourable former champion to retire gracefully and avoid further damage to his boxing legacy and his health.
