Tuesday February 23 - Hull (h) L 1-0 – Tuesday night home run comes to shuddering halt. Mohamed Diame scores as Hull don’t have to get out of second gear. Fifth defeat in six. Down to 10th. MOTM: Pringle

Saturday February 27 - Huddersfield (a) W 1-0 - A battling away win. Massively ride luck early on, Pringle scores against run of play, then defend superbly. MOTM: Murphy

Saturday March 5 - Nottm Forest (h) W 1-0 – Again, ride luck at times, but play far better football. Pringle gets another winner. Foley midfield masterclass. Back to within a point of play-off places. MOTM: Foley

Saturday March 12 - Cardiff (a) L 1-0 - Massive game against top-six rivals. Cardiff seem there for taking, but Town concede at a corner and look devoid of ideas. MOTM: Knudsen

Tuesday March 15 - Blackburn (h) W 2-0 - Birthday boy Murphy scores twice in second half, but papers over cracks of lackustre display. MOTM: Murphy

Saturday March 19 - Rotherham (h) L 1-0 – Undoubted low-point of campaign. Negative team selection, sloppy for goal, distinct lack of creativity. Booed off field. MOTM: Feeney

Saturday April 2 - Wolves (a) D 0-0 - Wolves very much there for taking, but Town can’t find breakthrough. Much-improved display, but two more points dropped. MOTM: Sears

Tuesday April 5 - Charlton (h) D 0-0 – Another non-event at Portman Road. Relegation-fighting visitors look more likely to score. Edginess palpable on and off the field. MOTM: Bialkowski

Saturday April 9 - Brentford (h) L 3-1 - Hyam breaks Alan Judge’s leg then later sent-off. More poor defending after break. Long-fading play-off hopes all-but ended. MOTM: Knudsen

Saturday April 16 - Sheff Weds (a) D 1-1 - Heading for another limp loss until 16-year-old Andre Dozzell’s Roy of the Rovers moment. Much-needed feelgood story. MOTM: Bialkowski

Tuesday April 19 - Fulham (h) D 1-1 – Knudsen’s last-gasp leveller salvages only a smidgen of pride after another dire home display. Ironic cheers greeted Town’s first attempt on goal in 71st minute. MOTM: McGoldrick

Saturday April 23 - Middlesbrough (a) - D 0-0 – Gritty away day display to dent Boro’s promotion hopes. Digby makes decent debut. Rode luck at times. MOTM: Bialkowski

Saturday April 30 - MK Dons (h) W 3-2 – Young full-backs Emmanuel/Kenlock impress in dead rubber. More bad defending, but better going forwards. Much more entertaining. MOTM: Kenlock

Saturday May 7 - Derby (a) W 1-0 - Bishop wins penalty, McGoldrick converts to spark feeling of ‘what if?’ Derby, play-offs guaranteed, not at full tilt. MOTM: McGoldrick
