We have 40 points at present.
If we were to lose all remaining 5 games.
if Accies win all their 5 games they will have 42 points.
Then if Kilmarnock win 4, as they will have lost to Hamilton, they will have 40 points . Same as us if we lost all our games. Killie could be above us on goal difference.
Then if Ross County won 3 games ( remember they have been beaten by Accies and Killie) they will have 38 points.
Then if Motherwell won 2 games (they were beaten by Accies, Killie, and Ross County) they would have 41 points.
Then Dundee Utd were only to beat us having lost to the other 4 teams they would have 42 points.
In the above scenario we could be in the play off spot on goal difference with Ross County below us.
If Killie win all 5 games they have 43 points.
If Hamilton win 4 having been beat by Kilmarnock they would achieve 39 points.
Then if Ross County win 3 games again they can only achieve 38 points.
In the above scenario we would not be in the play off or relegation spot.
If Ross County win all 5 games they can achieve 44 points.
Again Killie can achieve 40 points by winning their 4 games.
Hamilton can then only achieve 36 points by winning 3 games.
Motherwell could win 2 games and have 41 points.
Utd could win one game and have 42 points.
So potentially we could be in the playoffs by goal difference.
Killie draw with Hamilton and both win their other 4 games.
Killie have 41 points. Hamilton have 40. Hamilton could be above us on goal difference for the playoff space. Ross County would be below on 38 points at most.
Hamilton draw with Ross County and both win their other 4 games.
Hamilton finish with 40 points. Ross County have 42 points. Most Killie can achieve is 37 points.
We could be in the playoffs on goal difference.
Killie draw with Ross County and both win their remaining games.
Ross county finish with 42 points and Killie finish with 41 points.
Hamilton can only achieve 36 points.
Motherwell could get 41 points and Dundee Utd could get 42.
We would be in the playoffs with 40 points.
Hamilton draw with Dundee Utd and win all other games and have 40 points.
Kilmarnock win their 4 games and have 40 points.
Ross County win their 3 games and have 38 points.
Motherwell can win 2 and end up with 41 points by beating us and Utd.
