WANDERERS go into the final game of the season favourites to clinch a play-off spot after their draw at Cardiff City.

But what are the permutations ahead of a nail-biting last day at the Reebok Stadium?

The Whites sit in sixth place ahead of Blackpool’s visit on Saturday knowing a win would virtually seal an extension of their season.

The only way a victory would not secure a top-six berth is if seventh-placed Nottingham Forest also win, against East Midlands rivals Leicester, and do it by four or more goals than Wanderers.

The goal difference is currently three more in the Whites’ favour and they also sit six better off in the goals-for column than Billy Davies’ men.

Anything other than victory for Dougie Freedman’s side would open the door for Forest and, possibly, Leicester.

If Wanderers slip up, a win for either Forest or the Foxes at the City Ground would displace them.

A lot also depends on the outcome of Crystal Palace’s game in hand against Millwall tonight.

Palace, who currently sit fifth, a point ahead of Wanderers, travel to the Den needing three points from their last two matches to secure their berth.

If Palace lose both, Leicester could still sneak in alongside Wanderers if they beat Forest on Saturday.

Both Forest and Wanderers could be in the play-offs come full time at the weekend if they both win big and Palace get less than three points from their last two against the Lions and at home to struggling Peterborough.
