Could be a few weather related postponements. We’re home to Scunny. Should be a home banker but I’m led to believe they can be quite handy away from home. Got a run of games now from which we should get a good points haul to start pulling away with the chasing 3 either playing each other or teams in the PO spots.

No doubt things won’t turn out quite that simple but I can’t believe we’ll blow it now.

Morecambe at home for us. As you say about your game, it should be a home banker but knowing us we'll probably end up losing it having taken 3 points away from Colchester on Tuesday night.

Hopefully Tuesday will have given the players the confidence they need to get another 3 points though and carry on our steady climb up the table.

That is if the game goes ahead of course.

Every time I go to a game these days it seems to be massively windy!!

Fancy us to win if it goes ahead. Scunthorpe have been poor this season and we really need to stamp our authority on these kind of sides.

It is annoying. Hope it perks up when I get over for my 2 games!

Colchester at home, massive game for us and a win takes us at least above them so even closer to the top 7. Home form is great with only 1 loss, would be annoying but typically Vale to win 2 away where we've generally had problems this season then bugger up at home.

Colchester are a solid side, should be a decent encounter and despite missing three through suspension we should still be capable of at least a point if we perform how we have been lately.

Draw wouldn't be the end of the world with an "easier run" to follow this game...

Colchester the only top 10 side we have yet to beat this season after our draw on the opening day, would be nice to complete the set.

Interesting to see what the storm does in regards to the game, if a danger makes sense to call it off Friday or early Saturday to avoid them travelling, if it goes ahead it's probably not going to be a great spectacle for most games this weekend!

I'm predicting a 3-0 loss minimum on saturday, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't win another game this season. Our players have fully given up on this season which was shown on tuesday

Hmm, I never think of the words home banker when we have the pleasure of hosting Morecambe. They are a poor side but truth is that sticking 10 men behind the ball does work in the lower leagues.

Reckon we'll lose against Cambridge.

Cambridge in good form; 3 wins from 3.

Since McCall’s return, we were seconds away from 2 wins from 2 - however, still unbeaten.

Shock horror: we have an injured camp. Callum Cooke definitely out.

I see no reason why we can’t go down there and win, putting an end to this seasons shocking away form.

If our form continues on from Tuesday we should blow Morecambe out the water, but we rarely follow a good result with another these days.

Hold on, just found out Kettle is the ref. I hope he has a good game!

Watch our highlights from Tuesday and make your mind up...

I can’t see our players faring well against the physical Newport cloggers, given the weather forecast looks dire it’s all the makings of a fun afternoon.

Will probably be in the bar the minute we go 1 down.

This season I’m trying my best not to.

I appreciate that football is about supporting your side through thick and thin and I’ve supported them up and down the land when midtable in the conference.

However, I will not give this spineless pathetic shitshow of a team anymore time than absolutely necessary. They’re not fit to wear the shirt.

Fair enough. End of the season can't come soon enough for your fans I'd imagine.

What's happened to Newport this season? You'll struggle to find a more average teams than W10 D10 L10 GF27 GA 26.

Not only average, but this season must have been an absolute snooze-fest for their fans with goal returns like that.

Orient at home tomorrow and we're wearing a special one-off kit to raise money for the Hollie Gazzard Trust - which is our chosen charity for the season - details here:

https://www.ctfc.com/news/2020/february/hollie-gazzard-charity-day/

As for the game itself - it's one we really need to be winning as it's the first of 3 home games in a row which finishes with a match against Northampton. I've said it many times, but with 9 of our last 15 games being at home, we really need to ride the wave of our 3 match home winning streak and keep it going from hereon in.

Swindon are confirmed up for me, I can't see you lot letting it slip.

I'd like to see Exeter, Plymouth and Cheltenham come up. Could be some decent games with Rovers hanging around too. We're certainly not going up or down

Be a decent L1 next year. Apart from Luton, who’s likely to be coming down from the Championship?

If (and that is a huge IF) we went up, I'd love Luton to come down. Our record against them is nearly as good as our record against Swindon.

Stoke aren't going to get relegated. They changed managers at the right time and are likely to finish top half now.

They seem to be stuttering again but enough to stay safe unfortunately!

Barnsley look nailed on, and Wigan look strong favourites to fill the third spot. Charlton are an outside bet too imo.

My dark horses, though possibly only need 3 wins, Hull, sold best two players and sliding down the League.
