Bloomin' wet in Sussex but the snow has gone. Much more rain and we'll have to say we're in a rain forest.

£2 per ticket tomorrow. A lovely big crowd to see if we can get a shot.

Seriously, tomorrow and next week v Rochdale are crucial. I don't mean to be harsh but if we can't beat the teams at the bottom at home we don't deserve to escape.

Beautiful spring day here in sunny south wales, and tomorrows forcast is sunny intervals with light rain showers not a flake of snow in sight, so we welcome Bradford City to dave! but the question is which Bradford City will turn up? will it be the blow everything away City or the could'nt hit a cows arse with a shovel City? heres hoping for the latter.
I know the weather is pretty grim in some parts so for all the Bradford fans coming down safe travels.

Lots of snow overnight up here, especially in the surrounding villages and outer suburbs of Bradford. Good to hear good weather down there. We should have a decent following in Sunny Wales tomorrow.

Got a bad feeling about this one and I think our recent good run away will come to an end. Hopefully I am wrong!

It’s going to get called off at 1:30 again isn’t it?
i hope not - was at the ground half an hour ago and the pitch is totally cleared of what snow did fall - so unless it gets very cold or snows again it will be fine

Superb playing conditions in Barrow, so they've have had to call in a load of volunteers to shovel snow onto the pitch.

Shocking stuff from Mansfield, it's only -13° overnight!
If they didn't have injuries the game would definitely be on!

On paper a tricky game but understand that although they have been getting results Carlisle haven't been playing that well? Despite a crippling injury list there must be a bit of confidence in our camp after last weeks result at Orient. Narrow win for Town and then the playoff push is well under way
Well we’ve won our last 3, but 2 of them against teams down at the bottom and other other against Grimsby reserves after their 1st team’s fa cup heroics.

The last test we had we got beat 4-0 off Mansfield. Swindon is the first of 3 tough games. I’d hope we can get something from these games but to stand a chance we’ll have to perform at a level which we haven’t managed to do since January.

Newport looked alright to me early in the season. I'm not sure we've won at Rodney Parade before? Hopefully, that will change. 1-0 City.

Rovers at Gills. Paul Lewis and Brad Walker added to the injury list which Kane Hemmings already occupies. Not expecting us to come back with any points from Kent.

It's been snowing here in Newport for approx 30 minutes.
Not to worry, all previous snow has cleared and there is plenty of rain forecast.
Match will be ON, fear not.
Hope you've sold out.
Last i read 500+ tickets were sold.
Wrap up well, bitter cold temps but nowhere near what you're experiencing in Yorkshire.

Edit: If you haven't got a match ticket, there will be ticket sales available at the stadium, cash only

Swindon away. This is a game we’re capable of taking something from, but it is a tough game. I believe they are better than their 11th placed position suggests. In Charlie Austin they have proven quality and they are coming off the back of a very good 1-1 draw at Leyton Orient. If they can take points off Orient they can off anyone.

We’re coming into after 3 wins, but in all honesty I’m not overly convinced we’ve turned the corner fully after our bad run of form last month. We’ve deserved the wins, but I think the opposition was a drop off. The Colchester game was us getting the edge in a game between two mediocre teams, the Crawley performance was excellent but we were up against a team in real dire straights who constantly left the door open and made it easy, then in the Grimsby game last week we beat a team of reserves having rested everyone following their FA Cup win. We could hardly fail.

So today will test us and we’ll need to prove to ourselves that we’re ready for what’s to come. Today is a tough game, but over the next weeks there will be even tougher games against teams who’ve easily beaten us earlier in the season. Today we’re climbing Kilimanjaro, next week we’ll be climbing Lhotse.

How do I see it going? I think we’ll just fall short today sadly.
Swindon Town 2-1 Carlisle United

Grimsby's game is on too. Rochdale appear to be playing better and getting results at last. We have been horrendous at home in the league this season, hoping for a win but expecting a hard fought draw.

Currently we've only won 3, drawn 8 and lost 5 of our 16 home games. Only Rochdale and Hartlepool have worse home records.

Wagmi come out of the wood shed and issue a call to arms. It has not gone as planned this season but everyone needs to get behind the team sort of stuff.

Nice to hear from them but horse and stable door come to mind.

Sun shine through the clouds around here. £2 on the door so expecting a bumper crowd.

It's the hope, I hate the hope!

Really need to win today, get some confidence ahead of next week and hopefully justify resting a few at Sutton

The only prediction I'll make is that hellogregory will declare that our season is over if we fail to beat Swindon. To be fair, he'll not be the only one - the legendary Piglet_Phoenix will be doing the same on our forum...

We’ve signed a new left back. Paul Osew, formerly of AFC Wimbledon. Never heard of him but he’s a body in the door who’s at least played a good amount of games.

Well your prediction is wrong.

I don’t expect us to beat Swindon, but we’ll still have plenty to play for even if we lose. Yes we’ve got hurdles to overcome that are the equivalent of climbing K2, Lhotse, Nuptse and Everest among others before the end of the season, but while there’s a summit there’s a chance.
