Foinavon, because we're hoping for Barnsley, Gills and Scunny to fall, to keep the 500-1 shot alive...

We need to win, preferably by lots, and hope others slip up.

Swindon, annoyingly, have got a couple of their injured players back and have started to look semi-interested again. I expect tiki taki, and trying to catch us on the break...

As K Hill is the manager, and has said that the playoffs are now beyond reach, trying to predict our lineup is an exercise in cat herding.

I'll go for a 7-2 home win, with Calvin Andrew scoring all nine...:) 170ish poor souls from Wiltshire make the trip...

I think now we're safe we will see some of the youth/fringe players a bit of a run out.

We have a fresh bill of health so have a reasonable pool of players to choose from.

This could mean we play free flowing football with no pressure, or we are already on our holidays and play terribly.

I'm hopeful of a good, entertaining end of season game. I'll go 2-2.

Keith Hill has always been a complete nob on the touchline at Swindon - moany, hairy arsed fuckwit.

Nailed on 1-2

Ridiculously unlucky to be losing this. Still fancy us to win playing as we are though. Luck will surely change soon.

Yeah, that fucking wind up c*** Holt.

Still, 2-2 with 9 men aint too shabby and with a 17 year old keeper on debut

Swindon keeper had a blinder. We would have won otherwise. Very entertaining game for a neutral today. Shame about the Swindon players conduct at times though.

Only thing to let Henry's game down was his kicking, other than that he looks a great prospect.

Second red card was very odd based upon sky coverage. Looked like boo got fouled then rochdale player stands on his back accidentally obviously. Followed by grunt holt dragging him up. Bizarre to say the least.

Good result though and didnt impact final score just looks odd on the cameras

Second red your man was down milking it over a foul. Holt tried to pick him up off the floor, your man threw a punch in Holts direction, ref gave a red.

Sounds like I got my prediction spot on for once.

Cheers for the feedback on Henry D4ever, always nice to hear positive feedback.
