We really need to win the 2 games this week so we go into the last 2 games with a bit of a cushion just in case Bristol City have something to play for :) Assuming Colchester are fighting for their lives, this is exactly the sort of game we traditionally trip up on (ref Leyton Orient and Coventry).

The away game in October marked the beginning of our whole month without a league goal - how things could have been different if it wasn't for that run.

The club have a special offer so we're in the stands at both ends ... hoping for a decent atmosphere which transfers into a performance on the pitch ....

Must win game for me. If we go into City and Utd needing to get results from both, I don't fancy our chances

A draw and beating Oldham would make that an unlikely necessity so it's not a 'must win' in the strictest sense.

If we play as we did in the second half on Monday then I fancy us to get something, if we play like we did yesterday then we may as well not turn up.

I hate having to say 'must win'.

But for our run in, if we don't, we've given ourselves way too much to do.

Worst thing is, is that it's the only game i'll miss for the rest of the season. I'm at a rehearsal til half 9, then go straight on to a night shift at 10 til 8 in the morning.. So i'll have a long time to mull over a fuck up if it happens. On the other side of it, if we win and dale/Bradford/Fleetwood fuck up, then the buzz i'll have will help keep me up haha

Didn't look like we were fighting on Saturday, we weren't bothered.

What's your system like? Didn't make it to the game at your ground (thank fuck).

Do you play on the ground/direct? 3/4/5 at the back? Pacey/physical?

Trying to make predictions in my head to reassure myself.

Biggest game of the season for us, as is everyone form now on in, 3 points is a must with our last 2 games being toughies.

2-1 Town for me. Won't be easy as they are scrapping for their lives and we never really do well against Col U if my recent memory is correct.

Just for insurance, I had an acca on Colchester, Rochdale and Fleetwood to win - if everything went against us my season ticket next season would be paid for.

Worst ... bet .... ever .... 2 goals for, 13 against :)

You guys aren't going up, sorry. I'm not losing you without a fight.
