Aldershot v Dover
Altrincham v Grimsby
Barrow v Guiseley
Boreham Wood v Forest Green
Bromley v Braintree
Chester v Cheltenham
Kidderminster v Wrexham
Lincoln v Macclesfield
Southport v Gateshead
Torquay v Woking
Tranmere v Halifax
Welling v Eastleigh

I'm heading to Boreham Wood v Forest Green. I've always wondered why the club is Boreham Wood and the place is Borehamwood...

Expecting a cracker, whenever I've seen Forest Green I've really enjoyed watching them. Frear is one of my favourite non league players. Doe was one of my favourite League Two players, still in shock he isn't playing in League One.

I'm hoping our game against Bromley was a blip and not the shape of away games to come. We've looked great at home just need to get a game plan that works away.

Fully expect Joe Clarke to boom in a 30 yard screamer for Kiddie.

Score draw

Is Kiddy's 1/9 points a true reflection on how they've started? I'm guessing they'll be solidly mid table end of the season.

Saw Kiddy at Dover. Was thinking at half time they looked like a team in serious relegation danger, but they improved considerably in the second half when they lessened their hoofing. Three aerial goals conceded, they missed Langmead like crazy I think. They sent a lot of long balls to Verma who was playing just off the striker, and he's good in the air, but he was dwarfed by Raggett and Grimes so I didn't really get that one.

Dawson and Hodgkiss look like they can really damage a team down the right hand side and the lads they've got on loan from WBA look like they have promise. Would think they'll have enough about them to survive.

Kidderminster have scored 4 and conceded 6
Wrexham have scored 7 and conceded 4.

I'm expecting an entertaining game with goals. A tougher test than Torquay and Aldershot, with Joe Clarke certain to score. I'd be pretty happy if we got a draw.

Well Verma missed Saturday because he was having an injection so I doubt he'll play. Hopefully Langmead should be fit and personally I'd like to see him replace Rowe-Turner who was shocking on Saturday. The problem for us on Saturday was our finishing Styche and Reid both had plenty of chances but neither scored. I'd like to see Singh definitely start in place of Reid as he looks promising. Hopefully Clarke does grab a screamer as he's been close all season so far.

But the game should be entertaining, these are the first I look for on the fixture list and i'm always disappointed they end up on a Tuesday because the atmosphere is always amazing and would be even better on a Saturday.

As stated on Saturday, it's Macclesfield at home, so the expectation is to win.

I don't mean that in a disrespectful manner, I'm sure the Macc fans will know what I'm grasping at.

I'll be heading to Torquay tomorrow so get your parade and welcome party ready. For the most part, all the teams we have played so far have tried to pass it so it'll be interesting to see how we get on against a direct style, something we have always struggled against in the past. Hoping for some revenge after their last minute winner there last season.

Providing everything goes to plan, this'll be the first Tuesday night game I've been able to get to since March '14.

I'd be quite happy with a respectable 1-0 defeat.

Hopefully Diagne's not allowed to play, or even better we can say he has to play for you?!

We're playing well, scoring goals for fun and unbeaten still.

Altrincham, bottom of the table, lost all 3 games, no goals scored.

There can only be one winner, can't there? :dk:

Young's out for the season so probably no last minute winner again ;) Would be happy with a draw from this, with you missing Rendell and us... well us not being very good.

Missed the first home game of the season, so this will be the first game in my new seat! Hopefully the Rovers can christen it with a decent home win. Come on you white boys!!! No racism intended...

What worries me about this one is that we have never beaten them ( 3 draws 1 defeat), and in both away games against them we have conceded in injury time, something we have already done twice this season.
Unless we are at least 2 goals up going into injury time, i will be bricking it!

Isn't your style "score 4 goals, and then dare the opposition to try and get back into it"?

As yes, it's that time of the year again where we kindly deliver 3 points to Sincil Bank and even pay the postage. I will of course still go, despite the result being a certainty, for what seems like the 10,000th time...

Good choice. :2thumb:

We're playing some nice attacking stuff so far this season, 2 pacy wingers with Frear on the left, who's continued to be class this season, and either Marsh-Brown or Guthrie on the right, all exciting players to watch. Hopefully Parkin will be back in contention, although going with a pacy front 4 on Saturday certainly made us look dangerous. O'Connor's really hit the ground running which is important as we needed someone else capable of scoring 20+ goals a season to help take the pressure off the big man.

Boreham Wood have made some very decent signings, and given we're now top i'm sure they'll want to shoot us down. Should be a good game.

You Macc lot are greedy fuckers. You've won once here in the last 459 visits - what more do you want?!

If you had watched us last season you would not think that, the amount of 1-0 wins we ground out, especially away, was staggering, i lost count in the end!!
I'm loving this gung-ho approach at the minute, more of the same please. :2thumb:
