Kenny Jackett: Still retains hope of reaching play-offs

The Lions have slipped down the table since the turn of the year but picked up their first league win since January 1 when they defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 on Saturday evening.

A second victory over Boro this season lifted the Lions back up to 13th, eight points adrift of the top six.

"After the defeats we've had in the league it was a very good win for us and excellent to get a double over a team like Middlesbrough," said Jackett.

"There are a lot of games to come and anything is possible. The spirit we had was good and we will be looking to move on from the victory in a positive way now.

"We will need a real good run like we had earlier in the season to get up there, but we will see what happens."

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.
