All worries were forgotten today – the weekend was here.
Due to the odd number of teams in the 2nd division this season, Shrewsbury Town had the weekend off. Accordingly all focus was on those teams in and around the relegation zone. Town had a good day – Reading and Birmingham drew with each other, Leicester could only manage a draw and both WBA and Bournemouth suffered away defeats.
In the FA Cup, Nottingham Forest secured their berth in the semi finals with a 2-1 win over Arsenal at the City Ground.
