The run in

Two things from me.
First is we have struggled to beat the top teams at home and so missing out on the so called 6 pointers.
We have not beaten FG, Northampton, Bristol, Exeter, Swindon, Tranmere or Salford. We have to Buck the trend and beat Newport.
Second point is sorry to say Rovers don't look like they will drop another point in which case we need to get 7 points. I think the other chasing clubs will drop points somewhere..


If Bristol win 5 games in a row at the end of the season then you hold your hands up. I still think they will drop points in the last 3 games. I'd be amazed if more than 81 points would be required for 3rd place. Results never pan out how you expect them to. That's why it's so hard to win on accumulators beyond 2 or 3 results. Anything can happen in one off matches...sendings off, penalties, injuries to key players, lucky deflections. The expected scenario will probably be completely different to the reality.

We won 8 in 9, Exeter won 7 in 8, these runs often happen at this stage of season, I believe the match for Bristol against Forest Green is crucial this weekend and really hope that the FGR team that played at Barrow recently is not on show.  Their last 2 matches against Rochdale and Scunthorpe who have nothing play for I could see them winning comfortably.  Anyway regardless of what they do, as long as we get the 7 points, it won't matter.

I agree I think two more wins will be enough and it would require Bristol or Northampton to win all their remaining games to overhaul us. Bristol still have FGR at home and Rochdale away  (who are a good home team) and Northampton still have improving Orient away and Exeter at home. There won’t be any gimmes at this stage of the season with all the pressure that’s building.

THINK I am right in saying FGR are UP with just a point at the Gas........

 

SURELY they will be up for it on Saturday if so....

That’s correct, and I think they have sorted themselves after losing a few games.

Forest Green up already unless there is a 17 goal swing in the last 3 games.

It’s hard to call isn’t it? Come 5pm Saturday we could be out the top 3 or on the verge of promotion if we win and Rovers/Cobblers/Sutton drop points.

Ultimately though do our job it’s irrelevant what anyone else does.

I'm hoping FGR will be more than up for Saturday for two reasons. 

1. They can secure promotion with a good result

2. Along with Swindon its the nearest they have to a derby. Not that they really have enough history for rivalry but they still would like some bragging rights.

That's my worry, they are all but mathematically up anyway. They would have to lose all 4, other teams win all 3, and even then turn around a huge GD deficit. 

But , as posted, it is a local derby, with hopefully a large away following.  Then they may want the title badly after last season

Is anywhere offering odds on us not being promoted?

I need to place an insurance bet, my blood pressure can't hack this!

We're 2/5 TO go up so NOT to go up will be circa 1/1....

You can’t count playing staff, as they don’t pay entry.
