The septic-minded in the media are howling at the moon because they have grown accustomed to them strolling the league every year but the induced crisis is partly designed in the hope we become complacent.
On paper, we are effectively only two points in front if they win their games in hand. I wouldn't swap positions with them but neither would I think the race was lost .
We need to stay focused, ignore the background noise and continue to take care of our business on the park with another 3 points today.
They have one game in hand just now and we are 8 points clear.
If we win today, they will have two in hand and we will be 11 clear.
