Ours is a bit of dead rubber, just players fighting for deals next season now.

Here's hoping tomorrow is one of Macc's not-so-good performances.

Grimsby probably owe us one after our smash and grab 2-0 win back in August. Our shocking run of form was ended in style with a win at Gateshead and a Reece Styche hat-trick on Saturday so it'll be interesting to see whether we can carry that performance into Monday's match. Interestingly the match is no longer all ticket so presumably not many tickets have been sold, although I'm still expecting a crowd of around 2,000.

Think Grimsby could take anything up to around 1000 tomorrow, their away support is amazing.

Halifax fans need to be prepared for a ruck; have a look at our forum and you'll see our TMF (the mindless few) advocating smoke bombs being chucked on the pitch and to deal with all disorder man-to-man.

I don't think our teeny boppers are travelling tbh. Can't imagine there'll be huge intent for a ruck from our side.

Remember being part of 2000+ Imps for the playoff semi there in 2005, took a lot there in '98 for infamous on field scrap.
Fair play to you guys, your away support is better than a lot of league sides.

Braintree at home, given the fact they have only scored 1 more goal than us all season (how are they 5th??) its got 0-0 written all over it.

Can't wait to stand in the rain at Welling. Our penultimate chance of picking up some points this season.

We've not won a league match at Altrincham for 22 years, I think Luther Blissett scored for us the last time we won there! The breaking of this hoodoo is long overdue.

Big game tomorrow. Anything less than a win and it's play offs unfortunately!

Elsewhere Cheltenham have a tough game, Wrexham will be up for it, if they lose, then it's curtains on their season. Please do us a favour!

Your record at Moss Lane is as bad as ours at Haig Avenue then? Nice to see you broke your horror run on Saturday.

James Caton trained for us today, hopefully he'll play some part tomorrow.
Been superb since he arrived, unplayable at times.

The FGR promotion train rolls into Bromley. Got a feeling they are going to feel the backlash from Friday. Or something.

Anyway, first time I've been there. Sounds a decent away day. Looking forward to it.

Pivotal day tomorrow, a favour from Bromley and a win for us will be a huge step towards the title. Unfortunately I think a 1-0 win for FGR and a Cheltenham loss is more likely.

Rhead went off injured against Tranmere and with Hearn out on loan, McDaid now on international duty for the U21's for two games and Robinson also out on loan, that now leaves us with Jack Muldoon (probably only played 10 games for us up front) and Alex Simmons (a 19 year old youth product) as strikers.

Rovers travel to Kiddy, both teams in the last chance saloon for different reasons. Doubt Brabin will make many chances, we're capable of getting the required win, but equally of screwing up totally.

I'll take the latter.

Going to Wrexham vs Cheltenham tomorrow, hopefully be a cracking game and a huge gate. Any idea how many are expected there?
I don't expect too many Cheltenham fans there given the distance and it being on TV, I wouldnt expect a huge gate. Maybe 4000? Would have been more if we'd got somehing at Grimsby, I think some of our fans have given up.

My first away trip for a while...my other trip to Borehamwood was spent in the pissing rain looking enviously on at the large empty covered stand which wasn't open yet.

Looks like you may even outnumber us! We've had some huge away followings at the Moss this season - 1,000 from Wrexham, 900 from Chester, 900 from Tranmere and now something similar from Grimsby too.

We've got a few coachloads going, would expect 300 or so but as you say a lot will be watching on TV instead.

Away to Gainsborough tomorrow. Amazingly despite our recent drop in form we are still unbeaten away from home in 2016. Hope that can continue. Looking forward to my first trip to Northolme.
