Excellent point for Chorley following a battling away game at Brackley, even came from a goal down unbeaten now in 7 away!

Bloody hell, We haven't won a game for over two months and we go to top of the table King's Lynn who have won all but one of their home games and we only take their unbeaten home record. Maybe this'll kick start our season.

Fully deserved imo, we had the better chances in the first half but a couple of good saves from your keeper and we then went solely route 1 second half and hardly created anything whilst you got a good goal to win it. Another disjointed performance from us, we desperately need to get some of our injured players back as the squad has been stretched too far, we have picked up points against lower sides but couldn't cope against Chester.

Some home fans blaming the ref but I didn't think he was too bad, certainly not biased, lets some things go but basically similar things for both teams and we have certainly had much worse this season.

Fully deserved? Chester were pretty poor and not a patch on Spennymoor on Tuesday night.They spent the second half camped in their own half or time-wasting and rolling about on the floor. We have been playing with half a team since we beat Doncaster in FA cup and not had that team on the pitch since. Yesterday we were without half of the team that would have started back in November. As Darlington found out a few months ago, a full Lynn team can put you out of a game in a heartbeat. If you look at our away form it's unbelievable we are even in the top 6.

Crazy game at Curzon, missing 3 defenders told as we battled from 1 down to 2-1 up to 4-2 down. Due to injuries and basically nobody available to bring in, we're playing two people who frankly don't wanna be here by all accounts (Jack James and Brandon Hall) and they both had shockers, surprisingly.

We got it back to 4-3 and incredibly equalised with the last kick of the game only for the linesman to give it as offside....photo of that attached, not too sure about that one.

We have about six players missing through injury so I think your not on your own in that respect, I’m sure most teams are in the same situation you just have to deal with it.

I can't comment on Spennymoor but thought Chester were pretty neat and tidy going forward and solid enough at the back, we may well have been 'camped' in their half second half but did we really threaten their goal? Agree with you 100% that we aren't the team that played so well at Doncaster, primarily down to injuries (and suspensions Saturday) and we have done well in picking up points since then although that has mainly been against bottom half sides.

Clunan and Barrett coming back tomorrow night should make a difference and then only Scott and Hargreaves missing from what is probably our best starting XI but both still leave big holes and tough to expect J Jones and Hughes/Oxlade-Chamberlain to perform at the same level.

Yeah, six missing on Saturday through injury. Glendon, Hall, Burke, Dudley, Kenyon & Devine.

I prefer Tom's assessment and having watched most of it online I think his assessment is nearer the truth. We also have a lot of players missing through injury and we are very good away.

Another good win, this time away at Hereford which I expected a tough game with the manager leaving, sounded a very comfortable win.

Additions seem to have worked, we look a very dangerous side currently

Got there in the end today, had plenty of chances in the first half and should have been out of sight at half time. Felt like we were running out of ideas in the second half but thankfully Weeks put one in from the edge of the box, as he often does, in the 95th minute.

Never in any danger of losing, don't think Tyrer had a save to make, just all about whether we could get through them.

A toothless performance from us in our 1-0 defeat at Buxton. We barely created anything despite having a reasonable amount of the ball. Buxton had a few chances, scored a goal where their lad must have run 30 yards with the ball unchallenged before shooting, and then sensibly killed the game off.

On recent performances we might be a fair outside bet for relegation.

It is looking more likely the unthinkable may happen and Boston get relegated having been a strong promotion favourite in summer…….what is going wrong there.

Big 2 weeks for Curzon now, couple of weeks ago I had us a cert for bottom 4, now we are 8 points off the play offs with 2 games in hand and overall a reasonably easier on paper fixture list. Next 4 games we could win on paper and would close gap to 1-2 points……..but usually these are the games we flog.

Very poor game at Farsley who were awful, sadly we were not much better and didnt have an effort on target. Awful pitch, difficult conditions but these are must win games, 2 points thrown away!

He caught one just under the bar which might have been more likely to score had he not been positioned to grab it.

1 all draw last night with Chester. First 30 mins nothing much really happened, then Chester took control of the game after injury (again...) forced Digie off and we had to make a formation change. They should really have come into the changing rooms a goal or two up, missing a ball across the face of goal and then hitting the post.

Second half started fairly similarly and Chester took the lead through a low hit shot into the far corner. Again they should have increased their lead missing a couple of good opportunities before we suddenly sprung into life. Obedayi hit the crossbar then an OG levelled up the scores. Both teams then had huge chances to grab a winner in the dying minutes of the game.

Off the field though - what a fucking shambles. The club's owners have basically buggered off and the self styled CEO seems to spend all his time and energy with a basketball side that has lost every single game and plays in a school hall in front of 20 people. He wasn't even at the game yesterday.

As a result, basically no social media presence or build up to the game so the attendance was far less than it should be. We haven't had a manager interview or any club news for months. Fans had to fund a new player. They decided to announce segregation at the last minute, no information for away fans. Seemingly no turnstile staff (all volunteers) had any clue. There was no PA announcer, they actually allowed some kid to do it. Embarrassing to say the least. The sooner they all piss off the better

Another extremely comfortable win and Curzon seemingly at the present moment may be that side which launches itself like a rocket in second half of season because for the last month they seemingly have clicked big time in all areas.

5 wins in the last 6, only loss was Fylde away. 17 goals scored in them last 6 games, they had only scored 24 goals in the entire season previous to this run.

They have the current hot goal scorer as Peers has 6 in 7, plus if games in hand are won will be 1 win off play offs.

Favourable fixture list apart from last game, most top sides we have at home or bottom sides……..they ain’t talking about top 7 Currently and go off fact this league can be weird for sudden good and bad runs but key will be next few games and delivering wins.

I'd have Peers back here in a trice. Looks the part these days . When he was here didn't have that physicality. How long is he contracted for because I wouldn't discount his mentor and our current manger Calum McIntyre fancying him back too.

Not sure on length of contract but he will be gone in the summer.

Curzon for last few seasons have always had a steady flow of players who get picked up by others at this level,

Your worry is most don’t go elsewhere and do well. I don’t know if there is something to the ‘smallest club in league’ tag which drags an extra ounce of running and workrate but most do well at this level the head elsewhere to be average.

Reminds me a little of how some players could go to Accrington in league and excel then fail elsewhere.

But he is heading for over 20 goals at this level he will be gone, could see a Fylde after him, although sometime the part time job can keep him to this area.

This league is ridiculously tight now.2 team battle for top spot but last night threw a right spanner in works.

Play offs a little more settled but 4 clubs may nip in if one of the 3-7 clubs drops form.

But that bottom battle……ouch, four go down and really could be ten clubs involved.

Important last minute equaliser against Burton. Probably deserved a win, but went behind to a fluky deflection, and Burton then showed why they hadn't conceded for so long. Reward for keeping going.

Alty have loaned out young CB Jake Cooper to Darlo for a month now he is back to full fitness.
He was a fixture in NL early season until he picked up an injury.
He is a very good player especially at NLN level.

A popular move amongst our fans. We had him on loan from Rotherham before he was recalled and loaned out to you in the 22 season and he left a good impression. He'll be good cover whilst Lawlor, Sukar and Wheater get back to match fitness. Just need to find ourselfs a 6'0+ CF now to replace the loss of Beck and think we can get our chase for 3rd back on track

Today is the second of our 3 games at home spell need all the points again today as Buxton are the visitors. I just lack confidence in our ability to score goals unfortunately so thi k another struggle is likely.

93rd minute winner for us this time, that's doing it early by our standards.

The amount of late goals we score is insane, not just this season but for the last few as well. It genuinely feels like we do it every week. Definitely not good for the health!

If ever a day of ‘one step forward then two steps back’ that was it yesterday.

All them wins to get a half chance of top 7 then flog it at home to the side they needed to beat……ah well.

Just need now to get them wins to be fully safe then aim as high as can but I rule that as Last chance of top 7 gone.

Our late winner at BPA means we are undefeated in 15 away games. Just saying!
