You say it looks good for Sutton but if Torquay win tomorrow then they still might have to win both their final two games to go up.

As for the play-offs, well there's some big names in there. No wonder it can take many years for relegated clubs to regain their Football League status

Big ask winning at Stockport but not impossible. 

It will all be on the Hartlepool v Sutton game as Sutton other game is hapless or hopeless Barnet

As much as I'd rather it wasn't Sutton they've won it fair and square. The National League is one of the hardest to get out of the right way, so its merited. We can't be moaning about a Euro

With Notts County beating Sutton tonight the race for a return to league football is very much on for Torquay, Hartlepool, Stockport, Wrexham, Notts C, Halifax or Chesterfield.   Wrexham and Stockport

A phrase never heard on Location location

Chesterfield hold the last spot in the league with  Manny playing in the back 4 tonight.

And he was booked yet again. Must of had 4 at least since joining them

Strange really to switch him into the back 4 especially after his MoTM performance last game when in midfield.  He's played in 3/4 different positions in the time he's been at Chesterfield so he's versatile if nothing else.

Sutton up barring a collapse.

Need 3 points from 2 games and one of those games is Barnet 

What a dreadful Stevenage-esqe addition to the football league

Can you refuse a promotion? I'd read some press report somewhere where supposedly they're actually not that happy about it because they'd have to replace their 4g pitch to be admitted into the league and going forward it would cost them a big drop in facilities rental income.

Didn't Harrogate have similar problems ? Think they shared with Doncaster for a while

I'd be surprised if they became a fixture in the EFL. Their fans seem to be very concerned about finances and debt. The manager is also....the owners son. No prizes for forecasting that one.

Plus Fleetwood and Burton in L1. 

And Crewe in the EFL full stop. Bizarre.

They will do well to survive in L2 for very long, apart from moneybags Salford. They add nothing to proper League football and it should be fun watching them disappear. By way of contrast, the old names we loved to hate - Wrexham, Chesterfield, Stockport, Notts County, Hartlepool, Halifax - are all on their way back, having been taken over by some wealthy people who mean business.

You'll soon be back, living in the future!

They discussed it on a podcast but Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony put it quite succinctly. The cost of ripping out the AstroTurf and putting in grass, then ripping out the grass and putting in AstroTurf again would be paid for by the to extra money made from being in the Football League. So they might not like losing the AstroTurf and the facilities for the community and revenue it provides but they're not going to turn down promotion to the Football League over it. Even if they got immediately relegated then they wouldn't have lost any money doing it.

Sutton up as it stands, 1-0 up after Torquay imploded yesterday.

Tranmere also losing to Morecambe so looking like they will be contenders next season again ?

Morecambe are an absolute garbage team. I just can't understand how they're up there this season.

The one who got rid of their club legend and rules the place through old fashioned values?

He will be at Bradford next year.
