We can still drop out of the playoffs!!

Bristol will beat Scunthorpe easily without Coutts. Should Vale not win both games, could give them an easy third place. Northampton away at Barrow far more difficult match.
If you look at it from a pure pragmatic point of view they are in the best position of the three clubs.
However I am quietly confident we will do it.

Just saying but Mansfield look capable of winning both of their matches.

If we don’t win ours, it’s not a given that Northampton or Bristol Rovers will be the ones who benefit.

Harrogate away is no picnic on the last day.

Famously, Walsall away can be tricky too.

Both of them going against us and a Vale loss would be crazy, even given recent events.

What an awful thing to say

I'm disappointed but would never make such a comment if I was a fan of my own team

Don't start such negative threads 

Or naff off and post on the Bristol Rovers forum. If they have one.

Not a hope we will get anything other than a drubbing on Saturday, Exeter will be busting a gut to win the league. We just look busted, that was dreadful today. Even if we do scrape the playoffs we will be the team everyone wants to play as we look devoid of confidence, energy, pace and all the other attributes a playoff team would need.

Play-offs still seem to be our destination but it is staggering that we're more likely to drop to eighth than rise to third on the final day.

Maybe I am been negative and after I've slept, I will feel different tomorrow but how I see it, I feel we are more likely to finish 8th than scrape into the play-offs.  If we play at Exeter like we have these last 3 games, we are getting nothing, then we are hoping either Walsall beat a Swindon team backed by 3500 who have found form at just the right time or Sutton not winning at Harrogate.

Not either, but both. If three different results (including our own) go against us then we drop out. If just one result goes our way then we're in the play-offs. Each result is not unlikely but combined together then the chances are something will go our way.

The problem now is what will galvanise these teams more is that they know we have blown up big time and are unlikely to get a result at exeter so they will know if they do there job and get the 3 points theres a good chance they will be in the play offs. Make know bones about though Sutton and Swindon have very tough games but they are both attacking teams and score goals and are capable of getting a similar result to what Bristol Rovers did on Saturday. I think we could he in for a long and painful afternoon unfortunately. As much as I hope we can get a result I think we will be relying on one of these teams to do us a favour.

Does the fact that a draw now suits both us and exeter come into play at all?
No, because Exeter need the win to guarantee the title.

that's how betting company's get people. All three outcomes seem likely, so people lump them together to win big and at least one lets them down. I'm sure that will happen on Saturday. I think Vale will make the playoffs but will have a tough first round against Mansfield or Bristol. Although I don't want Joey to go up, thinking about Vale I think that would give us the best chance. Northampton have looked shaky to me. We beat ourselves in the first game and we still had good chances, at VP they were appalling (though so were we.) They've been up and down in form too.
