After the last-gasp 1-0 win over Preston North End last Saturday moved the Canaries closer to the play-offs than the relegation zone for the first time since probably August, some fans have started to dream that a repeat of the 2001/2002 season could be on the cards.
Glenn Roeder’s men currently sit thirteenth in the Championship on 38 points after thirty games. At the same point in the play-off campaign we had 50 points and were only outside of the play-off places on goal difference.
On that basis you’d say it looked a little bleak at best until you dig a little deeper into that league table, and realise that with just seven matches to go we had slipped to tenth and were 6 points adrift of the play-offs. So if you’re an optimist (and don’t tell anyone but I’m quickly becoming one) you could say we’ve got one more point to make up and nine more games to do it in. Well that sounds do-able. Doesn’t it?
