@suttonjared
Aldershot Town v Boreham Wood
Altrincham v Dagenham & Redbridge
Barnet v Chesterfield
Bromley v Solihull Moors
Eastleigh v FC Halifax Town
Hartlepool United v Woking
Notts County v Yeovil Town
Sutton United v Stockport County
Torquay United v King’s Lynn Town
Weymouth v Wealdstone

Three fixtures stand out - first is Yeovil’s visit to Notts County. A win for Yeovil puts them properly into the playoff picture. FC Halifax’s could push themselves towards a title push with a win at Eastleigh who will want to strengthen a playoff grip.
The game of the game is probably at Gander Green Lane. It’ll be another tough test for Sutton at the start of a big week. Issac Oloafe came on as a sub against Chesterfield, however David Ajiboye may still be out and Jonathan Barden picked up a knock against Chesterfield so is another doubt.

From our point of view we looked absolutely spent on Tuesday night. Tahvon Campbell went off injured on Tuesday and looks unlikely to be ready for tomorrow and Hyde is rated at 50/50. So we have just Jamie Allen and Billy Chadwick available in the forward line.

I can't remember the last time we won 4 games on the spin. I'm hoping but not expecting it to become 5. However if we can extend our unbeaten run into a 7th game. You'd he hard pushed to find a Halifax fan that isnt happy with picking up 17 points out of the last 21 available.

I'm going to be positive though. 2-1 Halifax. Momentum can be a hard thing to stop

As we have a free weekend I will just be hoping that a lot of the teams around us drop points/take points off each other.

We could do with a performance really. Expect we’ll stick to 3-5-2. Yeovil have been in decent form lately but I fancy us to nick it by the odd goal.

Yeovil twice in four days? An epic head-to-head battle, one for the ages.

We’ve looked out on our feet at times during the last two games. Our pressing game has caught up to us. I’d snap your hand off for a point now. Got a feeling that this might be one game too many though. Edging towards a narrow defeat

If we can't beat Woking tomorrow we might as well give up.

They will be speaking of the Yeovil v Notts C double header for years to come.

Grandfathers will put their small grandchildren on the laps and whisper ‘I watched both of these on a stream’. And their grandchildren’s eyes will widen and they will say in an excited gasp ‘what was it like Grandad?’.

‘Well, Yeovil successfully employed the high press against County’s pointless passing game at Meadow Lane. They came away with a scrappy but deserved 1-0 win.’

‘At Huish Park however Yeovil successfully employed the high press against County’s pointless passing game. They came away with a scrappy but deserved 1-0 win’.

‘Wow Grandad, you were so brave’. ‘And to think even now Michael Doyle is still the Notts captain and plays every minute at the age of 79’.

‘He’s an inspiration to us all son’.

Pretty much, these last three games have knocked all the wind out of our sails, never thought I'd be championing the return of Rhys Oates but fuck me he's gotta start tomorrow.

We really need to be winning this one if we are even half serious about the play offs.

Yeah no disrespect to Barnet but we need to win tomorrow, anything less would be a disappointment.

1st leg of the SomerMid Cup tomorrow. History between the sides has always been erratic, beating each other all time.
Yeovil are a side I always fear no matter their form.
We have been poor for a few weeks now, for me our season is on a knife edge, getting knocked out on away goals to Real Yeovil could well mean the end of any auto hopes (if not already)

You guys looked worryingly poor on Tuesday night, very leaky defence.

How disrespectful!

I am expecting another improved showing but with the same defensive frailties and lack of quality in attack leading us to a hard fought 1-2 defeat.

I hope Rowe goes back to our shape from a few games ago with two up front to get someone closer to Asante as he’s been a little isolated last couple of games

My preference would be Tyson but wouldn’t be totally against Dinanga. Hopefully Whelan can put an improved performance in today cos he’s been shocking last 2 since his MOTM display against Yeovil

Barnet just turning into form at the wrong time for us; and if our wheels were ever even on, they're certainly coming loose a bit. We lack bite and invention. That 11/2 for Barnet looks kinda tempting! A draw seems the most likely result but it's not one that's any good for either of us

We've been hit and miss over the last few games but this stupid record we have of no draws in 23 means one of us will end the day with their play off hopes still intact.

I'm just going by their fans on here, seem quite keen on things with the recent changes. Often gives teams a lift

And to be fair, by all accounts they pushed Stockport all the way in their last game and were unlucky not to get something out of it. Stockport are the best side I've seen this year so that shows signs of a team improving vs a team going the other way. The odds don't make much sense to me, but we'll see!

It’s not difficult to improve marginally when you’re in the form that they’ve been in and I’m sure that’s all their fans have suggested, but that still doesn’t make a draw being the ‘most likely’ result...

They’ve literally took 6 points from their previous 20 games conceding 50 goals in the process, whilst over that same period we are in the top 6 most in form teams in the league... so baffled to how you can come to that conclusion

Anything less than a victory from us is unacceptable, no point playing it down... but I’m sure JR will have our lads fired up as we’re looking for a reaction ourselves following a couple of defeats

Taking Stockport all the way away from home is more than improving 'marginally' compared to where they were. By the way Stockport are favourites with the bookies to beat champions elect Sutton today, with Sutton at home.
I think the manager change has improved things a lot for Barnet, and I'm expecting a very tough game today. Will be quite pleasantly surprised if we come away with all 3. If someone had a gun to my head I'd bet on the draw

We'll see I guess won't we ODL! Fingers crossed I'm wrong and we knock 4 past them on the way to starting back on the playoff push!

If I was a betting man I would be backing Altrincham, can see us playing a very experimental side with an eye on next season and also with 6-7 regulars are out through injury and Corona including McCallum the smart money should be on Alty.
