RefWatch; Ref for the second leg is Eddie Ilderton, 46, from Newcastle. FL ref since 2002 & works as a cop in Nottingham. Consensus is that he's laid back, good at communicating with players and reads the game well, which is why we very rarely see him in L2. God, we really do get pawned off with the dregs down here in L2, the difference between the incompetent fussy unfit pricks we normally get and Stephen Martin last night was astonishing. Is it really that hard to get a basic fitness programme for refs? In 31 games this season he has given 66Y & 4R - low.

For an inbred northener I must say Eddy is quite a good-looking chap, tall dark & handsome, with cute boy-next-door dimples. I must admit that my parents always encouraged me to go for the girl-next-door types when I was younger, which unfortunately backfired quite badly when we moved next door to a cemetery. That's why nowadays, the only women who can fulfill my rampant sexual desires are rather cold pale and stiff, quiet but good listeners, and well embalmed and earthy, which are really fucking impossible to find on Tinder. Swipe right? Well, I just like to dig a little deeper. Reffed Wombles once; 2-0 away loss to Spireites in '13 (4Y). Reffed Accy 7 times (W2 D2 L3); most recently the 1-1 draw away to Morecambe in April '15 (2Y, 1R)

Hates the scum. Reffed them once against Carlisle & they were hammered 5-0. Good. Hates them. Rumours are rife that the failing franchise are to undergo a major rebrand next season, so I've sent Winky the Robber my design for a new club badge which I feel embodies the true values of the scum; a lovely picture of two lepers gargling a bucket of sick whilst Bobby Winkelman punches a toddler in the mouth. Beautiful.

KettleWatch; When a ref retires his organs are immediately harvested for other refs, and as we speak Greg Dyke is transplanting Trevor's brain into Brendan Malone's head, which means we can look forward to having a complete fucking idiot in L2 next season.
AnagramWatch; Eddie Ilderton = Dire Lot Indeed.

Nice one Worried!
Christ the Accy manager does like a fucking whine, doesn't he?
Wasn't a perfect performance by the ref in the first leg (lots of hefty challenges waved away, but then Accy players diving dramatically on top of the ball given free kicks) but yes you can see the difference when a ref isn't completely gullible.

Oh John. I think the job he does at Accy is unbelieveable, the way he and his team spot young cheap players and mould them into a decent League Two team is worthy of so much praise. But the downside is that he is a total bellend. He comes out with so much rubbish.

Whats the difference between a Tuesday night away game away at Wimbledon, then playing at home on the following Saturday? Same 3 day break in between, difference being the Tuesday/Saturday game would have a 3pm KO on the Saturday, not 7:45 like this one is. Have a rest day the day after, then you have 2 full days to prepare for the 2nd leg. Just like the regular season should it throw up a long Tuesday away game followed by a Saturday home game. Just be quiet and get on with it.

I'm just waiting for the moans about this game clashing with the Liverpool v Sevilla match and about the fact that Plymouth will have had 3 more days rest and time to make plans for Wembley should Accy make it through to get a full house in Coleman bingo.

Any Accrington fans around - Would be interesting on your thoughts of how you played in the 1st leg?

Personally I thought Accrington played a expansive game and like to spread play and get their wide players running at full backs. They also play good balls into Kee and Windass who like to hold the ball up.

The good this for us is that it plays into our hands as we have an excellent RB in Fuller and two centre halfs who were too strong for the front two. I have said for a while that the difference in the tie could be that we have 5 quality forwards and Neal Ardley has used them brilliantly and whoever starts or comes on, puts a shift in.

Accrington failed to deal with Bayo for 20 minutes in the league game and he did the same on Saturday night. I would not be surprised to see Bayo start on Wednesday as I think it will be tight and then if we can keep another clean sheet fro 60 minutes, I expect Accrington to go for it and that leaves us to bring on Azeez and possibly Elliott to exploit the gaps on the break.

Tight scrappy score draw, culminating in Coleman moaning about our alleged strong arm tactics and the poor scheduling of the play-off dates.

Oh my goodness, Coleman really is the stereotypical Scouser: thinks that the world is against him and gets the excuses in early.

He's done wonders with that side, but oh do shut the f**k up fella. If such a thing exists (and I have my doubts - as I personally never feel this type of emotional shite) then Accy are about as close as it gets to being a second club for many. But Coleman single handedly instills a 'smack in the puss' mentality. I genuinely wouldn't want him at my club as I can't stomach bleeding heart whiners.

I'm almost siding with the Dons now, and I'm an inbred northerner at that!

Not been on here for a few days but I travelled down to the match last sat - struggled to see much first half but managed to sit on top of a bin 2nd half so had a better view :)
A number of fans were questioning our starting line up - there were a couple of changed to the side that finished the season. You could hear the groans from the away end when "The Beast" came on - no matter who he plays for we never seem able to get the better of him.
Great atmosphere around the ground - as for Coleman he's great at what he does and we all love him as our manager but he's so passionate and this spills over in his interviews sometimes (he's upset Carlisle and Hereford and probably many more over the years...)

Trouble is he just starts to sound like a bit of a twat. If he's gonna moan at least moan in a way that makes sense?

As a few of us have said, Coley is a great manager for us, but he really doesnt know when to keep his gob shut.

We havent played well for weeks, and to be honest im not confident we can turn it round tonight. Any of the "big" games we have had in the last few seasons we just havent turned up.

No doubt its been an unbelievable season for us, whatever happens tonight.

Score prediction 1-1

I fancy Wimbledon to see this through tonight, Accrington missing out on the final day could have knocked the stuffing out of them, and with the Wombles momentum I can even see them winning the final.

Going for a 1-1 on the night.

2-0 Accrington. Cracking strike, keeper maybe a little out of position but hell of a hit.

2-2. Superb run from Reeves. Fair play to Wimbledon, I thought they were out of it at 2 down so that's a great comeback.

If Accrington lose this, with the players they will lose too can see them struggling next year.

I know everyone always writes Stanley off but 3 months before the season has started and whilst there in a playoff semi is a new record. I do agree though losing Windass and Crook would be a big blow.
