The last game of 2017 away at Cardiff City on Friday 29th January ended with a win putting PNE into 8th place at the end of the year. Still in touch with the play-off positions. With an excellent run they could still get automatic promotion but let’s be realistic.
After finishing last season 11th they almost made it to 2nd place in mid-October but a very late equaliser by Fulham put paid to that and an injury hit defence started to leak goals pushing PNE to 13th at the end of November. A respectable December put them up a few places to within striking distance of the play-offs.
