Kobe and Tokyo have harder run ins. 3 wins starting Wednesday and we should be ok.

Welcome to you, Spireite. I agree that three wins really ought to have us safe - but three wins from six matches when up until now we've only won eight in 28? Kobe probably have the hardest run-in, but from somewhere they've probably found the best form of all the contenders.
