Haven't done one of these yet so wish me luck, but thought I'd do the match thread for tomorrow to alleviate Sunday's boredom! Not many dead rubbers actually, which is good given the time of the season. Anyway...

Aldershot vs Torquay
Aldershot could all but secure Conference football next season with a win over Torquay, if Welling also fail to beat Eastleigh. Torquay's poor form, meanwhile, means they'll be eagerly awaiting the season's end. They could be boosted by the return of loanee John Campbell from injury, who has scored once for the Gulls.

Alfreton vs Grimsby
Grimsby's well-documented travelling army will descend upon Alfreton, boosted by Craig Disley's injury time equaliser against Gateshead on Saturday. Alfreton will want to gain some points to further separate themselves from the drop zone after their disappointing 4-0 loss at Wrexham.

Chester vs Forest Green
Both teams will want to bounce back from poor defensive displays at the weekend, especially FGR who gave up their play-off spot to in-form Woking. The home side will be looking to overturn a reverse 2-1 loss suffered at the New Lawn in only the second game of the season.

Dartford vs Barnet (12.45 - Live on BT Sport)
A game of great importance for both sides, albeit at opposing ends of the table. A loss for Dartford could see them relegated if Grimsby fail to beat Alfreton, whilst Barnet will look to extend their lead at the top of the table.

Dover vs Woking
Woking will look to cement their place in the play-offs following a hard earned point against Welling on Saturday. It will be far from easy though, as Dover will want to follow up their impressive 1-0 win at Woking's play-off rivals, Eastleigh.

Gateshead vs Alty
Gateshead are yet to win in 5 games, but an impressive 2-2 draw at high-flying Grimsby will give them hope against an Altrincham side who have been inconsistent away from home, winning 3 and losing 3 of their last six games away from Moss Lane.

Kidderminster vs Bristol Rovers
Out-of-form Kidderminster will be encouraged by 4 points from the last 2 games, with Gary Whild's side wanting to end the season strongly. Bristol Rovers, meanwhile, will be hoping to keep up with leaders Barnet in the title race.

Lincoln vs Halifax
Halifax visit Sincil Bank on the back of an unbeaten 8 game run. They do, however, need to start winning if they're to enter the play-offs, with 7 of those 8 being draws. Lincoln's 3-1 win at Braintree will give the Imps confidence, after their torrid run of losses at home.

Macc vs Wrexham
Macclesfield should be tested against a resurgent Wrexham side, after they beat Alfreton 4-0 in Carl Darlington's first game as caretaker. He criticised the idea of playing two games in 48 hours after that win, so it will be interesting to see if Macc benefit from an extra 24 hours' rest.

Nuneaton vs Braintree
Nuneaton will be seeking to gain points on Alfreton as they play a Braintree side with little left to play for. The away side have lost their last three games, so Liam Daish's side will be eager to add to their misery.

Southport vs Telford
Telford's relegation on Saturday means Southport will look to pull away from the bottom four themselves, and their recent home form (11 points from 15 available) will encourage them. Telford, however, will want to end strongly to give them a chance to make a good start in Conference North next season.

Welling vs Eastleigh
A poor set of results could see Eastleigh realistically lose ground on the play-offs, so they'll be hoping to bounce back from a shock 1-0 home loss against Dover on Saturday. Welling's recent home form has not been good enough for them to stay up though, and they'll be looking to change that here.

Feels like an age since I was at the return fixture at the new lawn. Expecting another heavy loss for us tomorrow.

Not a clue what to expect, hopefully a decent showing from us and a few away fans to boost the coffers.

Big chance for a very much needed 3 points. Always good close games with Wrexham though, hopefully we can nick it by the odd goal.

I'd just like a valiant performance from our players.

Bristol Rovers fans do you like to play it on the floor or do you hoof it?

Tomorrow is a very exciting day. I really hope we can win and both Grimsby and Rovers drop points. Whatever happens tomorrow I still feel the title race will go to the final day. Come on you Bees!!!

I wouldn't bank on it. We're consistently inconsistent. One minute we're getting brilliant results at Macclesfield and FGR, the next we're losing at home to the likes of Telford and Southport.

Do you think you will bring many tomorrow? I think you brought about 300 for the FA Cup tie in October but not sure if your poor form will affect your following now?

We can do both but we tend to keep it on the floor at the moment with lines back . Very direct though using our wingers .

Altrincham
I half fancy Altrincham tomorrow. Surprisingly,only 7 points separate the two teams (both teams have won the same number of games) and Gateshead haven't won in 5. They were unimpressive in the reverse fixture last August, winning a dull game 1-0 (this was two days after they were battered 6-1 by Grimsby). I expected a bit more from them that day, as one of the pre-season favourites.

I fully expected us to drop at least some points over this weekend, I just hope it's not in both games. I think we're still fine, we were always going to have to win all of our games and it's still doable, Barnet and Rovers drawing a couple of their remaining games isn't a ridiculous scenario. Our equaliser was absolutely crucial and would have felt like a win in terms of team spirit which is the only thing we need at this stage of the season.

One thing's for certain, we're in for a hell of a game tomorrow. Our games with Alfreton are always rammed with goals.

Conference twitter page is spoiling some kind of major announcement before the Barnet game on BT

Hardly expected such negativity from you Shrew, but sadly you're right. Friday was our worst performance, dare I say it, since Chester 1, Brighton 7 about 15 years ago. I've got a ST in Legend's Lounge, but might possibly give it a miss. Only missed one home game since we re-formed, but players with one or two exceptions aren't arsed. Not what was expected after we won 4 in a row back in Jan/Feb.

Not sure. We usually travel fairly well to Aldershot but we have been terrible since September and a lot of people can't be arsed, as shown by home attendances.

However it's a lovely day, it's a bank holiday so we may get 250/300. At the start of the season this was one I planned to go to, but I can't afford to spend £50+ watching us play terrible football and no doubt lose.

Here we go, another match day thread, and yet again the biggest game of the day completely missed. What am I going to do with you people?!?

AFC Rushden & Diamonds vs Long Buckby - first vs last, and promotion on the line. A single point will do it, AFCR&D will be up and in to the reaches where we will play in the FA Trophy and have a chance to meet some of you lot! I don't really need to say a huge amount more. We could still go up if we lose and 5th placed Holbeach fail to beat 2nd placed Wisbech due to the fact it's a top 3 berth which gives us promotion.

In theory such a game should be a formality, but this is exactly the sort of game I would stay away from betting on! I'm probably more excited for this game than I've been for one in quite some time.

On a complete side note, are Grimsby fans still doing fancy dress for their away games?

Apparently they're announcing a name change for the league and a new highlights programme.

Oh right. I think they should have introduced a highlights programme in the beginning of the season.

Good luck to them putting a highlights package together when some teams in this league take ages to send a match DVD or don't bother sending one at all.

Think we'll draw and FGR and Eastleigh will both win today. Can't see our defence being good enough to get us the win.
