The fixtures for next season are out, and we start with the eminently winnable combination of home game against Wigan, before an August bank holiday weekend trip to Aston Villa.

Having had a quick glance down the list we appear to have been spared any particularly unpleasant looking months, for once. (Although, I always think that, only for a loss of form or injuries to key players contriving to lessen my expectations as the season progresses).

If nothing else, the fixtures list presents us with a chance to sample the delights of Reading and Sheffield in the spring - by which time both clubs will either be scrapping for their lives, or basking in mid table security, whilst hopefully we'll be planning for Europe, with at least one eye on a major cup final.
