Seeing as no-one has started one, and I'm bored at work, I'll give it a go.

Aldershot Town v Halifax
Gateshead v Welling United
Kidderminster v Eastleigh
Macclesfield v Telford
Torquay v Chester
Wrexham v Southport

Aldershot v Halifax

Halifax visit the Shots on a poor run of form, no wins in the last three, but still only one goal conceded, so they are still tough to beat. They will look to put the disappointment of not being able to put away 10 man Dartford last Saturday behind them and look to kick-start the play-off push with a result at a resurgent Shots. A good draw a Macclesfield for the Shots last Saturday showed the continued improvement under caretaker player manager Chris Barker, who will be further keen to assert his credentials for the job full time. Shots have one thing massively in our favour though, and something 'Fax haven't seen for a while, a flat pitch with grass on it. Hopefully they won't adapt until we are out of sight. Going for a spirited score draw for this one though.

Gateshead v Welling

Another team looking to get the play-off charge underway is Gateshead, who have loads of games in hand. They come up against a very dire Welling who are on a shocking run and look to be down among the dead men. The most recent defeat at home to Alty on TV was not the best advert for the Conference, they looked bereft of confidence and ideas. Heed on the other hand are pottering along steadily and will look to put the foot on the gas from now on in. Can only see this going one way and that is a goal difference boosting win for Heed.

Kidderminster v Eastleigh

Another couple of teams with play-off aspirations , though I would suggest maybe they could be a bridge to far for Kiddy. On the other hand, Eastleigh look to be full steam ahead, with three wins on the bounce, the last two being a thumping of #MMM2015, and a brilliant 2-1 away win at table topping Bristol. However, Kiddy's swamp of a pitch could be a leveler here, but I suspect though the Spitfires like to play on the deck, in Constable they also have the ability to go direct should the need arise. A narrow win by the odd goal for Eastleigh here.

Macclesfield v Telford

Another top v bottom clash here, #MMM2015 will look to put a disappointing home draw to the Shots behind them and get the quest for the title back on track with a win over rock bottom Telford. Telford seem to be an enigma, since Kittrick was appointed they seemed to be revitalized with some decent results only to slip back to old ways recently. However, a good away win at Torquay on Saturday will do their confidence good, and if they can go and play with a nothing to lose attitude, who knows what may happen. Macc looked a little short on ideas against Shots, relying a bit too much on Whittaker, and when that failed they seemed a bit lost. However, they should have too much for Telford so a comfortable home win here for me.

Torquay v Chester

Both teams safely in mid-table, both teams seasons over, nothing much to say about this really. Bore draw in front of about 700 and a couple of dozen seagulls.

Wrexham v Southport

Though Wrexham have loads of games in hand, they have nothing to play for in the league being too far back, but there is the small matter of a Wembley final on the horizon, so their players should be going all out for a place in the starting lineup there. Southport though are still in the scrap to stay in the division so still have loads to play for. Should be an interesting night at the Racecourse, and a hard game to call. Fancy Southport to get a valiant draw here keeping their survival hopes alive. Until Saturday that is when we will kick their arses all the way back to Scouseland. Interesting fact. Earlier this season we played Southport away on a Tuesday night then Wrexham away on the Saturday. One of fans thought it would be a good idea to walk from one game to the next. Twat.

Sorry to disappoint but we had a bowling green to play on at Southport and were still garbage.

Absolutely screams 0-0 this one.

It's been 421 minutes since we last scored, 7 games since we last won and we're against an Eastleigh side who have won 4 of there last 5. So I can only see this game going one way and that's a comfortable Eastleigh win

Its cut up quite badly. A lot of games coming up for us. Would be good to go on a run, end the season on a high. I reckon we can finish as high as 8th but we need to show consistency like we've not quite done so far this season.

Hard to tell, all the Halifax lot tend to spread themselves out.



Apparently.

Do I go later?

It feels like since everyone jumped on the MaccMobile2k15 it's been struggling to really get going with all the extra weight...if you could hop off and give us a push (starting with a few goals tonight) that'd be great!

Depends which Chester team turns up at Torquay. Since we won our 4 on the trot we've been garbage. Missing only my 2nd game (early hospital appointment tomorrow) in past 4 years. Would take a 0-0 bore draw and Southport beating Wrexham. All we've got to play for now is to finish above our neighbours, which is unlikely after the narrow derby loss on Saturday.

We've only struggled on Tuesday nights. Our Saturday games have been 1500-1800 on the whole. I would expect more than the 1100 from last week as the football on TV isnt massively appealing, we are winning games and its quite a nice evening.

As for the game, heart says narrow win but head says draw.

I'll go for 1-1 with 1300+ whatever Halifax bring (spread out, of course ;) ).

We'd be bottom four if it wasn't for our run in September.

Jesus wept.

What's that I hear? Oh yes, the sound of about 8000 Gasheads absolutely shitting themselves because the #MaccMachine2015 is about to trample them.

Could not muster the energy to go tonight. Sounds grim as usual though.

Chester fans have apparently ripped seats out at Torquay now (according to twitter)
