Well this is it: showdown day.
With QPR at Backburn and Bolton hosting Wigan, two relegation six pointers will unfold simultaneously, and if results go the wrong way - two 2-0 home victories would do it - the Hoops could find themselves second from bottom tonight. Should Fulham win at home to Stoke, they would then stand nine points clear of QPR, leaving West Brom as the only other team in danger of being sucked into the relegation quagmire. Of course, to keep them in range, Rangers would need the Baggies to lose tomorrow, which would mean three points for Wolves!
Alternatively, victories for QPR, Wigan and Stoke would see the Hoops gulp down a lung full of the oxygen of survival.
With no West Ham game today, I will be focused on events at Ewood Park, rooting for the Rangers - but with Rovers needing the victory and Hughes possibly happy with a point, I fear it could all go tits up, with Blackburn scoring a late, late winner. Time will tell.
