100 posts... and a few points on the board too

Welcome, at last, to my hundredth post on the site, and what a time to be writing it with Saints riding high following two more victories against in-form sides.

Oldham 1 - Saints 3
Saints 3 - MK Dons 1

Good times really are back at St Marys, with this afternoon's win over Paul Ince's men their fourth consecutive league victory. Last week's win at Oldham was far from straight-forward but Pardew's men dug in to secure the three points, the win sealed by debutant substitute David Connelly's strike. And the new man scored the all-important third again today as the side came back from a goal behind at half time to give the St. Marys faithful something to cheer about.

Pardew praised his side's winning mentality after a performance that takes them to within three points of escape from the drop zone. But the play-offs remain eleven points away and they will need to continue this form over Christmas if they are to be in the reckoning come May. Still, things are on the up at St Marys and who knows what the coming 100 posts have in store - either way, League One ain't so bad after all.

Four games left. Will Saints survive?

Would you be in favour of a return for Rupert?
