This month I was left heartbroken as our seven-game winning streak in all competitions was finally put to bed by relegation strugglers Doncaster Rovers at The Keepmoat Stadium. However, on the whole our league performances were very high quality and we bagged enough points to keep on breaking away from Wycombe Wanderers in 2nd place.
In the F.A. Cup, we were drawn against Premier League giants Arsenal in the Quarter-Final after our 5-1 thrashing of Doncaster in the Fifth Round. We lost to Arsenal, but against a full-strength team in which we put up a very good fight against.
As said previously, we picked up enough points this month to be able to really break away with the title-winning spot, with Wycombe now trailing six points behind us in the runners-up spot. In doing this, we finally bagged ourselves a Play-Off spot with six games remaining and being 19 points ahead of 7th placed Portsmouth.
At the bottom, Leyton Orient seem to have shortened the gap to safety, despite still being rock bottom of the table and still unlikely to revive their League One hopes for next season, with Coventry, Chesterfield, Rochdale, Shrewsbury and even Doncaster also dragged into an end-of-season relegation dogfight.
Although not contributing very much to the goalscoring like many previous awards have been handed out for, our new January signing has already become a first-team regular and has nailed down his starting spot over the past few months. Browning has been pivotal in breaking up many opposition attacks and the former Everton man has certainly been a coup for ourselves.
