Millwall 1-1 SAINTS

I HAVE had a bad feeling for a while that Saints will just miss out on the play-offs, Saturday's draw at Millwall intensified it.

Saints broke the deadlock in injury time and were minutes from a vital win at The New Den - only to conceed 30 seconds later.

They may have taken at the New Den having been on the back foot for much of the game.

If Saints held on for the win, it would have put them nine points off the play-offs. Now Pardew's side may be worrying that they may have too much ground to make up, especially as their involvement in the FA Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy will make for a hectic fixture schedule.

The scalp of Millwall would have been huge psychologically and acted as a catalyst for their play-off push.

Too many more draws will leave Saints running out of the points needed for that elusive sixth place.
