Well, that wasn’t the result we were hoping for. Trust the Blues to pick such a vital game to put in by far the worst performance under Garry Monk.
As you can imagine, fans are now going through all the permutations for how we could survive or be relegated on the final day.
Here is some of the reaction on Twitter:

Can’t help but think that home result against Burton is going to send us down. Wouldn’t be Blues without this stress #BCFC

Not feeling confident for Sunday #BCFC

With Monk admitting the players played with fear and Cotterill saying the same before I hope next Sunday won't be to big for the team. Monks got a week to get their mind focused and positive. I've no doubt he can do it. It's in our own hands we've got to want it more. #bcfc

Yesterday the players looked scared, lacked that confidence which we have seen at home under Monk, next week is huge, other results can keep us up but our destiny is still in our own hands. We all have our own role to play, let’s get behind Monks men.
KEEP RIGHT ON!!! #bcfc

Yep just glad monk seen wat we seen all season and if we do stay up we need to get rid of the players who cant handle the pressure cuz cant keep saving ourselves on the last day. Its sad to see 4 qpr players who was only 20 want it way more then the likes of jota on 40 grand.

Im with you on this but surely we have used up all our luck cards in previous seasons. We need to show what we CAN be against Fulham, Not what they EXPECT us to be. Simple for me. We win. We stay up.

For me the Bolton game isn’t an issue. Yes they are part of the dogfight but they can be winning 1-0 and still finish below us. As long as we don’t get rolled 0-4/5 they aren’t are main concern. #BCFC

An important thing to note is that nearly all teams in the relegation fight will be facing teams with something to play for. We face Fulham who still have a chance of automatic promotion.
Reading will be playing Cardiff who have the same ambition. Barnsley and Burton meanwhile will be playing Derby and Preston respectively, who are fighting it over the last playoff place.
Bolton are the only team playing a team with nothing to play for in Nottingham Forest. Wanderers will have to win by a massive margin to really have any chance of finishing above us though.
