Notts Co - Torquay
Stockport - Boreham Wood
Sutton - Eastleigh
Wealdstone - Aldershot

Almost a full set of fixtures, we're back!!

We're still on a decent run and have to be getting three points here, they've already lost 11 times this season, anything but a Pools win would be a massive let down.

Season about to be ended with the most weekend fixtures we have seen for month, can’t help but laugh.

Home to Kings Lynn, not confident at all but surely we can’t draw another blank against this lot. Our last home goal was the second week of the season having scored just 2 in 6 home games and drawn a blank in the last 4. If we lose I don’t see McMahon surviving much longer although the owners left it far too long to sack Taylor.

We need to beat Torquay if we’ve got any designs on getting ourselves anywhere close to them.

We’ve played one league game in a month despite having no Covid issues ourselves. No idea if we’ll be fresh or rusty!

Get the feeling this could potentially end up being the last set of games for a while following the North/South suspension. We need a good result after that trophy performance. Was back to our old selves missing sitter after sitter. We are missing Hyde. Hopefully the new lad Campbell makes an impact

Reckon someone should start a predict the P-P league, how many of these might get pulled?

Have to go to Weymouth and get the points as Rocka says.

3rd Saturday in a row with a home game, and it’s a good chance to get a win against Eastleigh who seem to be in poor form. It’s not going to be easy, games against Eastleigh never are. But it’s important to go into a big set of fixtures (our next three games are away at Torquay, Hartlepool and Stockport) with momentum.

Tom Denton out with a sore knee is a blow but hoping Dinanga can come in and form a partnership with Asante.

Expect it to be a close one but think we will come out on top against an out of form Wrexham.

As Hans posted above we’ll be missing top scorer Tom Denton which is obviously going to be a big miss... however if given the choice, I would rather Dents miss a game than Asante who’s been central to everything good that we’ve done since he joined..

Of the new lads brought in since our last league game the only two id expect to come into the starting XI would be the GK Smith, and Dinanga to partner Asante.

If we’re serious about mounting a play off push throughout the remainder of the season then we have to win as many home matches as we possibly can and tomorrow is no different. Looking forward to seeing us back in action..

Will Whittle come in for Taylor?

Believe he is still isolating until Monday.

If Taylor is isolating as you say then I’d suggest that’s pretty much nailed on..

Interested to see how/when JR uses Taylor and Whittle when both fit given he signed both and rates them both highly? Probably depends on profile of opposition for which one he chooses to play each week

Got a feeling he might go 4 at the back and play Taylor on the left hand side of midfield eventually.

Big week for us with Notts tomorrow followed by Sutton on Tuesday. Could really cement our position or be hauled back into the pack.

Plenty of options for the first time in a while with the 2 new lads and Little returning to fitness. Waters also now looks like he's getting up to speed. Only remaining issue is Wynter still missing which means Sherring playing out of position at right back.

I expect we'll continue with Umerah up top in the absence of Wright, with Street and Waters to come off the bench once he's worn the centre halves down with his physicality.

Could definitely be an option from what I’ve seen of him... attacking attributes certainly his standouts compared to defensively

The N/S suspension is pointless, case are going down yes and eventually deaths will too but this isn't going away in a couple of weeks or even months.
What are they hoping this suspension will do apart from putting the season even further behind.
If we do it in the NL then that's the season cancelled for me.

Yes a big game for us. Unfortunately cannot watch it now. I think a draw is a safe bet but obviously a win would be terrific

Every game against us is a bye until we get the takeover rubber stamped.

Nearly there...

Afternoon Guys and Gals. I thought you could do with another Halifax fan on here.
Today's game well we are onto another loan pairing as a strikeforce so I'm not hopeful of getting anything. Never fancy us away from home anyway.

We haven't kept a clean sheet for about 16 games either. We have built our seasons generally at this level out of being solid at the back.

However the style of football is generally a lot better than it has been in the past

5 changes for us from the midweek FA trophy game.

Pryzbek (GK), Whittle, Whelan, McCourt and Asante come into the starting XI. Another 2 debuts for us again today then, possibly another if Gunning comes on

Effiong straight in upfront with Wootton. That’s.. not not lacking for presence.

Shows what I know, Umerah benched with Waters up front. No Hall which is a blow, Sheaf comes in for his debut instead.

Were 1-0 up here as Asante takes advantage of some poor defending from Wrexham’s right back... good finish too on the volley.

Scrappy start from both sides mind

Not a clue what happened there but Wrexham have been given a peno out of nowhere and levelled the scores..

Think that was Wrexham’s first venture forward of the game

Handball by one of the Gloucester players.

We aren't very good at all and need to improve or we will lose this by a few goals, if it carries on.

1-0 down to a team with 2 wins from 16, need a better second half.
