It's either nine or seven

The amateur mathematicians at Cheltenham Town have been trying to calculate the points totals needed to guarantee promotion to Division Two.
The figure we have come up with is nine points needed from five games ASSUMING the team loses at Mansfield Town on April 9. If we win or draw at Mansfield that figure becomes seven points.
Saturday's win over Hull City guarantees the Robins at least a place in the play-offs as they cannot finish any lower than seventh this season.


Cheltenham Town (maximum points 89)
Apr 6 Macclesfield Town away
Apr 9 Mansfield Town away
Apr 13 Oxford United home
Apr 16 Carlisle United away
Apr 20 Plymouth Argyle away

Mansfield Town (maximum points 82)
