Saturday May 15th
Aldershot Town v Hartlepool United 3pm
Boreham Wood v Wrexham 3pm
Chesterfield v Wealdstone 3pm
Dagenham & Redbridge v FC Halifax Town 3pm
Eastleigh v Barnet 3pm
Maidenhead United v Sutton United 3pm
Notts County v Bromley 3pm
Solihull Moors v Woking 3pm
Weymouth v Altrincham 3pm
Yeovil Town v King’s Lynn Town 3pm

Sunday May 16th
Stockport County v Torquay United 12:15pm

The standout fixture of the weekend is at Edgley Park as 3rd host 2nd. County need to win to make sure that they’re still in the title picture, regardless of what Sutton do at Maidenhead. York Road is not a happy hunting ground for Sutton, a win here would be massive on a number of levels.

We just need to win, not really that bothered what happens above and below us, a Torquay win would be nice but it's whatever at this point.

Hope Armstrong is back for this as we don't look as threatening upfront and for the love of Christ we have to go back to three centre halves playing, I don't think I can watch us play four at the back again.

No idea what to expect from the raiders but they look like a bit of a basket case so expect us to win the game and keep us in the picture.
Some interesting games for the play off contenders, with a few tricky ties so hopefully a few dropped points. Notts v Bromley finishing a draw would be nice too, and again the week after.

Much improved performance from us on Tuesday, hopefully we can carry that into Saturday too. Reverting to two up front seemed to give us more impetus and we carried far more of an attacking threat.

Still though, it's now 540 minutes since we last scored a goal and that simply has to end on Saturday.

I f****** hate BWOOD. A must win.
If we don't beat Boreham Wood, the play offs become a real uphill struggle. It would leave us needing to beat Notts County, and even then it might not be enough.

First part of our weird double header with Bromley. I think a win here and we’re pretty close in terms of securing top seven.

Notts County will be a 1 nil loss. No doubt in my mind.

You'll score against us. Our back line is all injured - Hollis 9 months, Kerr 3 months & Gunning walking wounded. Really struggling for centre halves so likely Yarney and Evans could feature for us.
We've also dropped our number 1 keeper bizarrely to take a 'closer look' at our sub keeper in the last 2 against seemingly less opposition. He doesn't fill me with confidence.

We seem to have found goals in the last 2 albeit against 2 sides who have nothing to play for.

Huge game for us. Not exactly must win, but three points would be great and put us at a big advantage over Bromley - 4 points ahead with a game in hand and a far better GD.

It’s probably must win for them to be honest, so could be fairly open given we like to attack these days. I don’t much about Bromley other than Michael Cheek and devil incarnate Chris Bush. Do they have any fans on here?

After a drab performance against a well organised Boreham Wood, it’s become a must win game once again for us against an inform Daggers side. I can’t say I’m confident but we seem to have a knack of winning tough away games so that’s giving me some hope. Lose this one and I think we are pretty much out of it

they don't have any fans out there let alone in here.

I always imagine Bromley to be the kind of team we hate playing against - big, strong, inevitable endless long throws. But then I thought that was going to happen at Maidenhead the other night and we managed to just pass them to death anyway.

Presumably we’re going to stick with Tuesday’s line up and O’Brien starting with Rodrigues effectively playing upfront.

I am hoping for a Neil Warnock Division 2 style run in going undefeated for the remaining 7 games.
3 into that so far, so good.
As others say a draw wouldnt be a bad result I dont feel we can afford to lose against them in either game, so on that I think we got to win really.
Its just nice to see everything seem to click and at the right time, but it would be the "Notts County luck" to lose Roddy and Wootton to injury.

Yes, definitely more must not lose than must win, for us at least.

Seems like we have nothing to play for now after them back to back defeats for the first time this season.

Gary Liddle is back for this and he is without doubt our most important player. I doubt we'll see a repeat of the shit the bed defending v Maidenhead.

I've given up on the top 3 now. I'll go for a 1-1 draw, game having a sort of end of season feel about it.

Hopefully we can tie Chris Bush in knots - I think he was sent off at ML last season, and didn’t he kill a Wrexham player the other week?

He deliberately stamped on Angus' head but the referee saw no problem with it.

Same with us after our draw the other night. Think us and you will just have a little play out for 3rd. Not overly exciting but certainly beneficial. Good chance we'll face each other in the semi final too with the way the ranking system works.

I wouldn't rule you out for a third at all. We've got Torquay Sunday. Probably go down to the last game.

I think we blew it with the two losses and every fucker winning their games in hand which tbh I didn't expect, particularly Sutton and to an extent Torquay.

The next three games are just about finding momentum as we looked shell-shocked after the Bromley defeat and it showed against Maidenhead.

Seeing as we appear to be uncannily following Stockport’s season trajectory but just a few weeks behind (sack popular (with some) manager, appoint new ‘head coach’ no-one has heard of, who (almost) everyone initially hates before realising these fancy dan training methods might actually work and then start hammering teams 4-0), I now expect us to go on a 13-game unbeaten run and win the playoffs.

Sorry everyone else!

All matches are tough at this part of the season. If we scrape into the play offs DK will make it awkward for whoever's we play particularly if King Jorden continues with his excellent form.
I dont think we are good enough to win the playoffs although have to say have not been that impressed with many teams this season .Still think Stockport will win the play offs especially with the amount of money they have spent

We're really being punished with injuries just at the wrong time here

Must win for us. We have generally backed up a defeat with a win and we need that to carry on Tomorrow. I really think we might have hit a wall this time though. Earing makes us tick and he could be done for the season.

Hoping to be back on here tomorrow evening feeling a little more positive.

Incredible, the third ‘best player in the division’ to pick up a season ending injury after Cal Roberts and Asante.

Just Joshua Davies at Wrexham to go now.

who’s out now?
Fraser Kerr, centre back, that's both our best Cb's out now, reckon we've got about 5 or 6 important players on long term injury. We're down to will Evans and Yarney at the back now I think, terrifying

Can't you bring back your reserve team from furlough? ;)

I’ve a sneaky feeling we’ve actually done that with Will Evans. He dropped an absolute honker of a performance on his last start for us away at Maidenhead back in early March, and disappeared from the squad completely with no mention of him in press conferences.

15 games later following our horrific injury run, he returned as a sub against Kings Lynn last Tuesday :lol: So yeah he’s back in contention now, and as bad as he is, he’s better than Yarney at CB so it’s sensible to bring him back in
