Hoping to keep up our good recent record v the Gas. I was down there when we won back in Sept but they've hit very good form since.
I win will keep us right in amongst the promotion chasers :)

Win is essential to keep up with pace. Plenty of rain between now and Saturday though, hope not another wasted journey to accy

I'll be making the 200 mile trip from Bristol so I'm hoping the game goes ahead.

I was impressed with Accy when we played them at the Mem back in September and I'm not surprised they're having such a great season.

Win their games in hand and they could be 3rd and they only have to W1, D2 & L1 to go above Rovers into 4th. Given they're all home games I'd expect them to take somewhere between 7 and 10 points.

Regardless of form we have an awful record against Stanley. We've never won at the Wham, losing the last 3 and have also lost the last 3 at home without scoring a goal. 6 straight defeats, Accy are definitely our bogey side.

I'd be delighted with a point.

on the 7.30 train so:
a) desperately hoping the game is on,
b) that we don't lose,
c) it doesn't p*ss down all game

any 2 from 3 and i'm happy as long as we have a few beers!

UTG!

Disappointing to concede from a cross that ended up in the back of the net but hey ho - we're still 7th with games in hand for the other teams.

Well done to all the away fans - not a nice day to be on that away terrace. I thought both teams made a good game of it and it was a flukey goal! However the win today keeps us right amongst the promotion chasers...

Carlisle away next week - another tough one
Come on the reds!!

fair play to stanley who deserved the win on the day and the first team to do the double over us for a fair while.

must admit i was among a few gas that didn't fancy the rain/sleet/hail/snow/high wind combo on the open away terrarce and went in the home end where we had some good natured banter/hospitality from the stanley fans who seemed like a good lot.

good luck for the rest of the season unless we meet you in the playoffs.
