thought I'd better get this started... (no-one else seems fussed!)

Goes without saying that both teams need a win. 'Dale looked decent at ours and it'll be a toughie.

Not sure what sort of numbers we'll take. A fair few irregulars cried off once they realised that we couldn't actually get promoted. 5-600, maybe but even that may be ambitious. It is what it is.., etc.

Draw for me, with Preston winning their match today, It'll be the play offs for us, resigned myself to that 3 weeks ago and am sticking with it.

We will win the Play Offs though, this is a very different team to the ones we've had previously coming into the final part of the season, they're full of confidence and we have some cracking options to bring off the bench if we need to- Carl Baker and Ben Reeves just two of them.

Can't see this match ending in a draw - a draw is useless for Dale and not much good to MK unless PNE are losing.

I'd expect both sides to throw everything at it at the end (depending on scores elsewhere of course).

We don't do draws. Think we will probably lose today, tough game and we will fall short finishing in 7th. Fantastic season nevertheless. The weather has been fantastic all week, today is dull and rain is to be expected, typical.

If by some sort of miracle we do win today and other results go our way we take it into the final game, unthinkable!

Knowing our luck, we will win today and Preston North End will lose. We will head in to the final game of the season, at home against already relegated Yeovil Town, knowing a point due to our incredible GD would be enough to see us through. We scrape a 0-0 draw after the ever reliable Will Grigg misses a 90th minute penalty. 'We are going up say we are going up'...but oh damn, Preston won 0-30 away at Colchester United and we crash back in to third.

Glass half empty type are you chap?

0-1 Carruthers.

Fat Scouse Boy moaning about Swindon's lineup - absolute tool.

NOTHING to do with him.

Looking forward to him blowing a fuse on his interview. We have not broken any rules and can play whatever side we choose in the league.

Like I said in another thread - Swindon are under no terms and conditions to make it interesting for the neutrals and MK, and owe absolutely nothing to them.

Keep your nose out, and focus on your own game Robinson.

If you'd of gained enough points over the course of the season, you wouldn't of needed to moan about this situation.

Some of the franchise customers not too happy about us playing our reserves, on twitter. it's not fair blah blah! Completely failing to see the irony in doing things in a fair and correct manner!

I don't think it will happen but I would love it if we beat them in the play-offs!

Hope your lot win the playoffs, best footballing team for me. MK were horrid to watch today. Cynical cheats for want of nicer words. Swindon on the night had slices of good fortune in the first half but weren't of the ilk MK were. Hope you nob them.

We gave it a good go today, their first two goals came from fouls, maybe you could say we should have better dealt with them. And their third goal looked to have effectively killed it... Jamie Jones again! Hope we don't sign him.
