If we beat Derby on Saturday, this game will be quickly forgotten. If we don’t, a worrying dip in form will be evident.

A good cup run would be nice though. We haven’t got anywhere near a sniff of even a quarter final for ages and it could be argued that a decent opportunity to achieve this was passed over last night.
