Striker Lee Novak rescued Town with a late goal, their first in 359 minutes of football, and after losing four of their previous five matches Grayson's side limped into the play-offs as Scunthorpe hit the woodwork three times.

Grayson said: "It doesn't matter what happens before, it's what you do in the play-offs themselves that counts.

"I've been involved in teams that have finished third, fourth, fifth and sixth as a player and a manager with different outcomes.

"There's no right or wrong way to get there and once there it's a lottery. Ultimately it's how you end up that matters."

Grayson added: "It's been a long season for them physically and mentally and the unbeaten run probably took a lot out of them mentally. They reached the play-off final last year and didn't get too much time off in the summer. We need to get a bit of spark back."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
