@RyanC2408: “If we play owt like that in play offs we will get laughed at.”

@Kevsol: “Why am I jealous of Portsmouth and Charlton right now?”

@RoyOfTheRokers: “Dead rubber game, but at least finishing 4th maintains our 'home advantage' for the second leg. LJ said we'd be ready for the Play-Offs but it'll need an almighty improvement on today's game if we are to bring something back from Sincil Bank on May 19th.”

@joshhardy__: “Finishing 4th in a 3 horse automatic race, 1 win in the last 9 games. If Lee Johnson doesn’t get us promoted via the play-offs, I would be disappointed to see him take charge next season.”

@Ian_Crow3: “Winniesta salvages point. But worrying going into playoffs. Too lax and lacked creativity. Poor form into playoffs, a lot of work to do as we look the least likely of those in playoffs. But playoffs are the lottery and we must keep the faith whatever happens. #SAFC #HawayTheLads’

@JakeHartley: “A very average season, now let’s not bottle this for the 3rd year in a row haway Sunlun”
