(City’s score first)

Feb 23 Tottenham Hotspur (H) D 1-1

Mar 2 Aston Villa (A) L 0-1

Mar 8 Stoke (H) W 2-0

Mar 15 Southampton (A) L 1-2

Mar 22 Sunderland (H) W 1-0

Mar 29 Swansea (A) D 2-2

Apr 5 West Brom (H) W 1-0

Apr 12 Fulham (A) D 1-1

Apr 19 Liverpool (H) L 1-3

Apr 26 Man Utd (A) L 0-2

May 3 Chelsea (A) L 0-2

May 11 Arsenal (H) L 0-2

Points picked up: 12

City’s final tally: 37 - SAFE

Will City survive, how and why? Darren says: Staying up by the skin of our teeth. Home form all important with the supposed winnable away games against teams we don’t normally fair too well against in Villa and Fulham. In the final four anything can happen. Keep the faith, hold on tight - it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

• Angela Sharpe – City fan

(City’s score first)

Feb 23 Tottenham Hotspur (H) D 1-1

Mar 2 Aston Villa (A) L 0-2

Mar 8 Stoke (H) W 2-0

Mar 15 Southampton (A) L 0-3

Mar 22 Sunderland (H) W 2-1

Mar 29 Swansea (A) D 2-2

Apr 5 West Brom (H) W 1-0

Apr 12 Fulham (A) W 2-1

Apr 19 Liverpool (H) L 0-4

Apr 26 Man Utd (A) D 1-1

May 3 Chelsea (A) L 0-2

May 11 Arsenal (H) D 1-1

Points picked up: 16

City’s final tally: 41 – SAFE

Will City survive, how and why? Angela says: Yes City will survive but only by the skin of their teeth. Securing some crucial points at home will be the only way they stay up and the fact other teams around them will struggle. I do think it will go down to the last game of the season – and it won’t be like last season when we were home and dry with games to go! If they continue to create chances, the goals will start to go in (I hope!).

Tomorrow: Columnist & commentator Chris Goreham and City fan Steve Gedge give their verdicts.
