If we do that then we'll go up says Chambo in 'crazy' League One promotion race

Luke Chambers is looking for Town to finish the season as they started it and says if that happens, Blues will get promoted.

Paul Lambert’s side - who were unbeaten in the league until the middle of October - ended a run of four games without a win with an impressive 4-1 victory over Burton at Portman Road last weekend and now take on fellow promotion hopefuls Oxford on Saturday in the first of eight home matches left in the campaign.

“Only time will tell, but it felt like we got through a psychological barrier in some ways last week,” writes the Town skipper in his column in Saturday’s matchday programme.

“There were a lot of nerves around the place. Everyone at the Club knows what is at stake and it was a game that we needed to win after some disappointing results.

“It’s no good performing like we did last week, though, and not following that up. That’s what it’s been like recently, doom and gloom one week, great buzz the next.

“The league is crazy because there is no real consistency and that is why you have seven or eight clubs fighting it out at the top. There is no stand-out team.

“We are only five points off top spot and things can change in a matter of a week. We’ve got to keep going and see where it takes us.

“We have 12 games left and if we finish the season like we started it, we will go up. It’s as simple as that.”
