Stevenage have had 3 come back positive yet are still playing us today, fair play to them to doing everything they can to get the game on.
Are Grimsby just not paying the £3.5k to get the squad tested?

God knows, seems I wasn’t wrong yesterday to call it a farce.

You can bet your life we’re in the wrong. This is the same club who lost their best player for free despite having a years option on him and then decided not to host a pre season. We blamed both things on COVID but everyone else has got on fine, this one will be no different.

I think it has been suggested that the Orient players caught the virus at a hotel in Oldham .
How very comforting for the Crawley squad as they sit in their hotel waiting for the game at Oldham today!

No idea how they have been allowed to play the game, we were told by the EFL medical people not to bother testing everyone but to isolate.

I think this is why the postponement is being investigated by the EFL. Sounds like Stevenage and Bradford agreed to let the game go ahead despite the tests, Grimsby didn't want there's too. Something seems a little off.

Already feels like today is a huge game for us. Morecambe have shipped in a lot of goals this week and are fancied by a lot to be strugglers like us a win today could be massive to the young side we have.

God our team looks awful yet again, still playing the same terrible formation with a CM and LW at wing backs.

Can already predict how this game will go. We will do some pretty passing in midfield and have a million shots that all go wide. Carlisle will have two shots which will both go in and one will definitely should have been saved.

One change for us, Richardson straight into the team unsurprisingly.

Salford's team looks very strong on paper, not confident we'll get much today.

Well our director of comms has just been on the radio and says as far as we're concerned, our game vs grimsby next week is still on, until we hear otherwise from the EFL. What a mess.

we’ve been a bit flat but dealt ok with the aerial bombardment from Harrogate so far. Leggey been outstanding but we’ve not created much going forward and they are pressing us well.

Hopefully they run out of steam with the pressing they are doing but probably the toughest half so far we’ve had excluding the Fleetwood first half.

Disappointingly a goal down at half time at Scunthorpe. I feel we've been the better team with Scunthorpe not really creating a lot. They look fairly pedestrian and sloppy but a loose pass in midfield allowed them to break and a nice finish to put them a goal up, after we really should have taken the lead but for a good save from the Scunthorpe keeper.

We've bossed midfield apart from that loose pass and have had the best chances, I just have this worry now that Scunthorpe will sit eleven men behind the ball second half.

1-1 at half time, Exeter definitely deserve the goal because they dominated the end of that half but the way we basically gave it them (OG) is frustrating.

We are frighteningly bad. Just give so many cheap goals away leaving us a mountain to climb. Mellish in midfield is an absolute disaster that everyone other than Beech can see. As things stand Southend are worse based on last week. Just got to hope and prey that there’s a one more team worse than us.

Lively game at Salford, sounds like we edged the first half and even got a few shots on target. The lad Richardson has hit the ground running. Salford not without their chances though.

We've been a lot better than the previous two games but find ourselves a goal down due to another mistake apparently, although not as bad as last week's.

1-0 down at ht at home to Colchester - great goal by Chilvers - but we should have 2 or 3 ourselves. The Colchester defence looks terrified everytime Quigley runs at them

Well that was a terrible first half yet were winning. Such bad quality from us at time, constantly giving the ball away. Carlisle should have been 1-0 up but our keeper made his first good save in about a year. Ryan Loft then missed an absolute sitter (shock) before Hallam put us ahead.

Just gotta hold on, will take 45 minutes of sitting behind the ball. Need it with all these injuries we have
