GUEST POST FROM NATHAN WALKER
Now before you start shouting at your laptop screens telling me to shut up and don't count your chickens, just read on and you may find some optimism!
In the last few weeks, who would have thought we would have got the maximum of
six points against two teams in Yorkshire fighting for their championship lives in the space of just 3 days?
Who would have thought with the terrible records we have at The Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster) and at Bramall Lane (Sheffield United) that we would win them both?.
Who would have thought that after conceding in the 78th minute and being on the back foot for most of the game we would emerge 3-1 winners at Donny?.
I know I didn't think this would happen.
Ironically two games in three days comes this weekend when near promoted and table-toppers visit the Cardiff City Stadium and on Monday, City travel to another bogey ground in Deepdale, Preston.
But after these two games, do we have winnable games in Middlesbrough at home and Burnley away?
Robbie Savage's Derby County keep QPR quiet and Cardiff City in the Championship title race.

I feel dirty even writing this after the horrors of previous seasons.
But I guess the perennial question has to come up now, is this finally going to be Cardiff City's year?
So pained I am by experiences at Preston, Sheffield Wednesday and Wembley, I'm refusing to make any kind of prediction here but just going through the process of blindly hoping that it will happen, somehow someway.

FORMER Cardiff City hero Nathan Blake hit the headlines this week with some radical comments on WalesOnline about his other former team, Sheffield United, going down.
Explosive comments like "Personally I've got no love for that club and it would give me nothing but pleasure to see Cardiff be the side to all but consign them to relegation," lit the blue touch paper before City's crucial clash against the Blades this week.
Cardiff City's Stephen McPhail and Pompey's David Nugent do battle in a slightly more glamorous setting than they will tomorrow.
