Next 4 games look a lot more winnable than the last 5 for me. Home games v Sutton & Oldham (both of whom we owe big time from reverse fixtures) then Salford & Barrow away. Nothing to be afraid of. If we could bag 3 wins from the 4 it would be massive.

The last 5 looks tough, Pools away with their fantastic home record, Walsall away (resurgent Walsall), Exeter away last game who we saw last night are a tough nut to crack. Home games v Brizzle Rovers (flying) and Newport who are up there with us. Tough last 5. But all in our hands, nobody will look forward to playing against us.

I predict we will finish on 72 points & I can see goal difference playing a part. Hopefully that will be enough to get us into that top 7. Without being overly negative I do think it's a season we'll look back on & think what if... 

It's so tight at the top & we've bottled it on a few occasions this season. Sutton, Oldham, Rochdale. 6 points thrown away if you accept a draw at Sutton, the other 2 should have been victories. We'd be up in 2nd place with a game in hand on most below us. Massive moments in the season. 

Cautious predictions below:

Sutton - Draw

Barrow - Win

Salford - Draw

Oldham - Win

Hartlepool - Lose

Bristol Rovers - Draw

Walsall - Lose

Newport - Win

Exeter - Lose

72 won’t be enough. If Wilson and Proc last the season we’ll be up on 76+

Win them all and we win the league. If Joey Barton can lead a team to promotion then  armageddon is around the corner and we needn’t plan for August onwards.

A run down of the remaining games after today.  What surprises me is the number of 6 pointers still to be played.  With a bit of luck we can pick up wins in our next couple of outings, and hope that points get shared in some of the 6 pointers that our rivals will be playing in.  The whole thing is way to close to call at this point, but I believe that we have as good a chance as anyone of getting into that 3rd place, especially given that we are currently on a good run of form.

We can look at the fixtures and hypothesise  all night long but every team in the mix is going to need luck with injuries.  Suffice to say if we keep everyone fit and can have players returning such as Jones and Gibbo we should be good for at least a playoff place.

Two important games tonight.

Hartlepool v Mansfield

Salford City v Crawley Town

A win for Mansfield means they would go above us into fourth place with a game in hand, whereas a win for Salford wouldn't move them from eleventh place.

 I do feel 3rd place is between us, Bristol Rovers ,Northampton and Mansfield. I can't help thinking the number of games still be played might just catch up with Mansfield. Going to be difficult a schedule for them.

Don't see Salford in the mix at all but you never know.

We doing OK 4th with 8 go lots of work to do to get in play offs (which was the objective I believe the club set the players management etc ).

But why stop there i am looking at the opposition and thinking top 3 is very achievable  

The impressive thing about sat is once we scored the two goals we didn't get ourselves sent off and I feel we didn't really get out of first gear afterwards .

Not looking at  other teams we need focus on getting wins on the board if we do that we will either be 2nd or 3rd but we must maintain our discipline and not give leg ups to any the 8 remaining teams if we do not  we have the quality and class to finish the job as when at full tilt there's no better side than Vale but I feel we are just doing enough at present in order finish 2nd or 3rd we need to up it significantly.

So after last night's results the we are left with four games against teams in the top half of the league and the rest against teams in the bottom half.I reckon another four wins and two draws are enough for the play-offs but I'm looking a bit higher than that.UTV
