We're supposed to be playing Orient away.

Don't know yet if the game is on. If it isn't we'll be two games behind everyone else through no fault of our own.

We're at Grimsby. Don't expect us to lose.

Morecambe away... one of 2 sides in the league to beat us in 2020... would be nice to avenge that but always a battle against them (although tend to do well away to them bar last time)

They seem iffy, been annihilated twice but got a couple of good results mixed in so maybe a bit Jekyll and Hyde!

Crawley v Southend.

A game they will gave been anticipating with baited breath ever since the fixtures were announced. Could they cope with the teeming tens of fans who would have watched this....how disappointed they must be to realise its behind closed doors. We will miss the overpowering quietness of the library stand but I think the memory of the hush from the open terraces will power us forward.

Seriously, I think we could win this. That normally means we lose but they haven't had the best start and we have somehow contrived to win our last two so we must be favourites.

Can see a 3-1 win but the 3rd goal coming late from a breakaway as Southend push forward to find an equaliser.

I have family on the mudflats who are Southend fans so many beers and much micky taking are at stake here.

Morecambe seam to be much better away than at home (so far) this season....

Looking forward to my first live-streamed game, which will be a bit odd, as I have only watched a handful of Rovers games on the telly...sad fact is that it will probably be the only way I get to see my team play for some time.

Carlisle v Barrow, big big game. One of the few fixtures apart from watching Tranmere I’d like to attend. Such a shame no fans allowed.
Scunny at home for us, anything less than a win and our forums will go into meltdown.

Walsall seem handy again. Everyone on our forum's quite bullish for some reason but while we're coming together will be happy enough with a point here if we can manage it. Delighted if we nick it of course.

We’ve looked like we’re just starting to click so hopeful of our first 3 league points against Scunny on Saturday.

We've confirmed that our next two home games next week against Cheltenham on Saturday and Wimbledon on Tuesday will be going ahead and that the club is now back open.

Fuck knows what sort of team we will put out or how fit our squad will be.

I'm still pissed off we lost the Spurs game.

You'd best get yourself sorted out, I've got money on Bolton wrapping up the L2 title against you lot on the 10th. The odds weren't that great to be honest but it's a sure thing so easy money.
no you have not ...stop making stories up fool

We don't do home wins (still 0 in 2020) and we ain't gonna start against Walsall imo. Draw looks the best bet. That or our favourite 1-2 home defeat.

We played well at Salford but still can't score enough, especially at home with less space in behind.

Zak mills out for a month so nathan Smith will most likely play right back with Shaun brisley coming in to the centre of defence. I cant see james Gibbons starting at right back as he wont be match fit.

I’d feel more comfortable if Barrow had won 1 or 2 games.

The fact they are still waiting for their first win back in the EFL, makes me absolutely certain Carlisle United will gift wrap it for them. I’ve put £50 on the Barrow win and £50 on the Double Chance Barrow or draw.

We play Tranmere away. We looked poor last week but managed to pick up the victory. We then looked even worse and got smacked by Man City's u23's on Tuesday. We still don't have any fit fullbacks so we will have people playing out of position. For some reason, Eisa (our only good player) will be left on the bench again.

Not too optimistic but you never know.

Mansfield at home has never been an easy game for us and i don't expect saturday to be any different, i just hope we recover in time after last nights game against newcastle they gave everything in the game and were out on their feet at the end.

And why not?
FGR's first three games of season were against the three promotion favourites and we came away undefeated with 5 points.
In all three games FGR were the better team and unlucky not to have taken all nine points.

Morecambe away, 3 games in and no team with 100% record shows how competitive this league is, I’d like to see vale really go for this one, put the game to bed early and start resting some key players for a busy October

Should have three players who were huge last season but have yet to feature due to injury and suspension available in Pope, Amoo and Gibbons too which is a huge plus. Shame Mills is out for a month but right time to get bodies back.

I agree, luckily smith can do a job at right back defensively, but it would be nice to see Gibbo return soon enough. I also hear scunthorpe are signing jake taylor on loan! Good signing for them if it goes through

We’ve played Salford, Vale and Mansfield so far, and happy with 4 points, and in glimpses the potential of the young team has been evident. I’m therefore upbeat about our game with Cambridge and reckon we will sneak a win

Because Bolton were poor and Bradford not great then down to nine men and we didn't put them away; better showing against Salford but still not entirely convincing, so we've been OK without pulling up tress and Walsall are looking decent so predictions of a big win when we're still struggling to score seem premature. Plus we're at home as Chris noted. Happy to be proved spectacularly wrong of course if we romp it.
