    The SDLP will be doing miraculously well to hold 14 seats with several seats under a lot of pressure: Foyle, possible loss to SF/ PBP. Upper Bann very real prospect of loss to SF; West Belfast: possible loss to PBP (but more probably a SF loss to PBP); South Belfast possible loss to Alliance/ Greens; North Belfast possible but not probable loss to Alliance (not SF), should hold on in East Derry but not a given.
    Two slim chances of gains, one in South Antrim and one in Strangford (which the SDLP have talked up in every Assembly election) but maybe this time the chance of a gain with the retirement of Kieran McCarthy the Alliance MLA from Kircubbin.
    My head suggests 2-3 losses overall with perhaps 1 gain for a total of 12 seats, a good result with so many new candidates and seats under pressure but a result which continues the decline of recent assembly elections.
