Bees boss Mark Warburton reckons a massive 95 points is needed to secure automatic promotion.
The manger saw his side stutter then explode into life to drive past Coventry 3-1, and admitted a four-point gap back to third-place Orient gives his side breathing space.
For all that, Warburton reckons it’s a ‘unique’ season – and one that may beat the all time record of 102 points for a third-tier total set by Plymouth in 2001-02.
He said: “We’re now a game ahead in terms of points, but we need six wins and 95 points I think to make sure, and even then it could be more.”
Warburton made a vital change at the start of the second half when he brought Alan McCormack into midfield and removed George Saville.
The manager explained: “We wanted to make a change. We weren’t on the ball as much as we’d like to have been and there were too many gaps in midfield.
“The second half was a different case, and we were playing the way we wanted in our half with more intensity.
“We’re now a game up on third, but it’s about consistency. It would have been no good had we beaten Orient last week, and lost this one.”
