Of the teams left in the relegation dog fight, Pompey are all but safe. Even if they don't manage to get anymore points, the chances are that there will be someone worse than them.
Of the remaining team WBA and Boro have a huge mountain to climb if they want to reamin in the Premiership. I think that Boro's games are too tough and the Baggies have left it too late for their return to winning ways.
That leaves a three way race between the Tigers the Magpies and the Black Cats. Of the remaining fixtures, you would have to say that Newcastle have the hardest run in, but with Newcastle getting their first win under Alan Shearer under their belt it could be the galvenising agent they needed to regroup next season.
The Tigers have been their own worst enemy for the second half of the season and have failed to put survival to bed on a number of occasions especially against close rivals.
However a tie against Bolton who have nothing to really play for and a game against a team that will have an eye on a very different prize may come at the right time for Phil Brown's Tigers.
So it comes to Sunderland. If they can't get anything out of the game against Portsmouth, then a tough last game against Chelsea at the Stadium of Light could await.
What ever happens this season has been one of the most interesting at the bottom of the Premiership. As always it will go to the wire and more will depend on how your close rivals fair then how you actually do your self.
It's squeaky bum time.
