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."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
