The run in

Gas 1/1 to win at Rochdale and a nigh on certainty to beat Scunthorpe.....

Rochdale isn’t a straight forward task. Despite being relatively poor this season they have only lost 4 of their 22 home games this season.

That’s the same amount as Tranmere, FGR and less than Vale and Northampton for example.

Granted they’ve drawn 11 but a draw in that one keeps them behind us with us having a game in hand.

Vale aren't the only tired and injured team at this point. There's tough games to play yet, and the last few games always have crazy results. Not every team around Vale will win every game they are 'expected to' and that is a fact. I really think we'll give Newport a pasting in response to these last few games. We beat them when they were flying and we couldn't beat an egg last season, and we gave them a good game with no strikers earlier this season!

Big night tonight, hopefully Exeter slip up & Mansfield drop points aswell ideally.

It's nice to still be involved at this stage of the season (at the right end of the table anyway)

Where ever we finish after these last 2 games, it's where we deserve to finish. The table doesn't lie.

2 cup finals left. UTV.

Some interesting stats off Sky. Forest green 12 players on 30+  games total 22 players . Exeter 9 players on 30+ 28 players Northampton 10 players on 30+ 32 players Vale 5 players on 30+ 25 players Bristol 9 players on 30+ 32 players Mansfield 7 players on 30+ 28 players 

That tells everything in a nutshell. Consistently have your best players available and the results come. It just so happens we have the best squad, so we could afford to lose more and still compete.

I think whatever happens (and i still have hope), once the dust settles its been a remarkable achievement regardless.

You need some luck for a promotion and we've had pretty much everything go against us, if we go up they should make a statue of AC/DC in that embrace at Hartlepool because it would be an incredible achievement. If not maybe its a step to far with what we've had against us.

Knowing how close knit the squad is for example and knowing what happened to DC when you think to that Tranmere game for instance days after for them boys to dig that equaliser out with what the place had gone through in the days before was phenomenal.

If we fall short once the dust settles and as fans the emotion of it passes I think we will look back with huge pride on this season, with better fortune I am sure we will do all we can to put it right next season.

Especially seeing as 2 of those players are Legge and Cooper and we used 3 keepers. Incidentally, is Cooper still at the club?
