Oh dear, it's now well and truly out of either team's control and Saturday's East Midlands crunch game will probably only be important because of local bragging rights.
When it came to managers, Forest decided to twist and Leicester to stick, and both strategies look doomed to failure. Crystal Palace's draw at Millwall means that unless Forest win by five clear goals or more, the talonless Eagles only need a point at home to Peterborough to secure a place in the play offs. Leicester have no hope of catching them.
Bolton remain in reach of both clubs but they will surely prove too strong for Blackpool.
The dream is still alive - just - and I have a hunch that Peterborough will win at Selhurst Park, but then I can see Forest and Leicester pissing on each other's bonfires as they battle out a useless draw.
