Halifax
Chesterfield v Yeovil
Dagenham v Boreham Wood
Eastleigh v Bromley
Solihull v Maidenhead
Torquay v Hartlepool
Wealdstone v Halifax
Weymouth v Stockport County
Woking v Kings Lynn
Sutton v Wrexham (17:20ko)

Games of the week involving the top 2. Torquay host Hartlepool in the game of the week. Torquay have stumbled a bit in recent weeks. But Hartlepool haven't always been solid on the road.

Sutton host Wrexham absolutely flying and producing those last minute winners that are often associated with eventual league winners. Wrexham on the other hand currently occupying 5th in the league. Will provide a stern test of Sutton's title Hopes

As for my team Halifax well after 4 points out of 6 against 2 of the top 3 we are back on the road against a side we should have a better chance of beating so naturally it's all set up for a home win isn't it. Wealdstone you are welcome in advance.

Bizarre fact on ourselves by the time we have played away at Wealdstone tomorrow and then Notts County on Tuesday we will have played 15 games on the road compared to only 10 at the Shay.

Tough test against an in form Yeovil side. Who knows what line up we will play after all the changes midweek - fancy us to sneak it 1-0 though.

I expect us to lose against Sutton.

Keates has said that apparently we lost out on a transfer target to Sutton in the summer after they blew us out of the water with their offer. Whats their deal? I didn't know they were bankrolled, although I always thought it was odd they could afford players like Beautyman.

First game in a run of difficult ones coming up, feel like we need a win here, try and capitalise on their injury misfortune, they're on a spotty run of form and we're middling away from home, we create chances galore but rarely score more than one goal away from home, really been our downfall.

We might be without Sterry/Johnson but both have travelled down, so has Tom White who's loan expired today, so I'd imagine we've got that sorted already?

Wouldn't be too upset with a point but we need to start winning away from home if we wanna seriously try and push for 1st.

Keates is (probably) talking pooh. We signed three players in the summer, Dean Bouzanis who was looking to move to a club in the South East of England as his partner had signed for Arsenal Women, hence moving from Australia. We signed Tobi Sho-Silva who had been at Halifax but was keen to move back to the South East of England and Aaron Simpson who was at Dover last season. I can’t see how we would have blown anyone out of the water for those players, unless someone seriously undervalued their services.
We aren’t bank rolled, there isn’t a big money man behind the scenes at Sutton. Pretty much all our signings are guys from feeder league clubs, players spurned by FL clubs such as Harry Beautyman (who is on his 2nd spell at Sutton) and Craig Eastmond (who we initially picked up a few months into the 15/16 season as no-one else was particularly interested. And it seems like Beautyman he’s comfortable at Sutton) or just lucky circumstances. The core of our squad has been together a while now.

As for tomorrow I can’t really see which way it will go. We haven’t played that well in our last two games, but perseverance has seen us through.

The language from Halifax players and management in advance of our game has been bizarre. Smacks of little old Wealdstone having the audacity to turn up midweek and beat big old Halifax. Did any of the red cards get overturned on appeal? No, thought not.

Jeff King: “We owe them one. The lads are going to be right up for this one. We definitely need to give them one back for what they did here. That red is still in my memories. They played the game well and got around the referee. We really need to turn up on the day and give them a good hiding.”

Jake Hyde: “We definitely owe them one, we had a couple of sending offs last time which really ruined the game a little a bit. But I feel we owe them one. "

Pete Wild "We all know the absolute farce they put us through at The Shay.."

It did ruin the game didn't it? You played 10 men from the 4th minute. You won the game but if your management team and players are as rattled as you appear to be I'd say the statements have done there job. Jake Hyde didn't even play in the game

I don't think our players and management are rattled at all. Your lot sound a bit ridiculous. Both were reds, neither overturned on appeal. So your lot only had themselves to blame. I think we're very much looking forward to locking horns again.

Can't even remember the 2nd red I can agree the first one was a very nieve and poor challenge.

What our management team and players say before a game is irrelevant too it in my opinion. Most teams at this level aren't good enough at football to be able to hold a grudge at the same time

Hopefully it's a good game.

How much do you charge for your stream? And how's the quality?

Maybe just getting his excuses in early.

Oh don't worry you will beat us. We are generally awful when we go down south.

Two of the leagues form sides matching up this weekend then.. looking forward to watching a game that’s clearly going to have two teams trying to get on the front foot which can only make for a good game of football (hopefully!!)

JR has really restored home advantage here after being a notorious soft touch at home these past 5 years, with 6 wins on the bounce at home under him and 7 unbeaten in total... so I’ve got to fancy us

Thinking 3-1 win in an open attacking game, Asante x2 and Tyson to get the goals for us!

Whilst I agree both were reds, one of your players got away with a challenge that was miles worse than Jeff Kings.

Hopefully be a good game anyway.

We've just re-signed Billy Chadwick on loan from Hull for a month. He was with us earlier on in the campaign and tore it up so to speak. Brilliant signing.

For the first time this season i think we are all glad we have the weekend off. Too many injuries over the last 10 days, hopefully gives time to bring in cover.

Not .sure who will take the pitch for us. we really could do with Dean Moxey at left back as makes the defence far better but doubt he will be there. Armani Little should be back in midfield but knowing him he will probably not. We do have Boden up front from Chesterfield which will help numbers.

Reckon we will cancel each other out and a draw . Unfortunately now unable to watch thde stream.

Might have a few out today, the Sat-Tue mayhem catching up a bit with us.

We have a good record at Plainmoor but hard to say how this one will go. Can't go any worse than the 0-5 at the Vic, surely?

We NEVER win on the TV. Our record at Gander Green Lane is shocking as well, in fact our record on plastic pitches in general is horrific.

If we win I'll be astounded.

We’ve not beaten B Wood at home since we’ve returned to division, depends which team of ours turn up but hopefully that goal from McCallum in the week starts him off on a decent run.

We remain in 5th place as we prepare for our promotion push of next season.
Tough match today followed by matches with Barnet and Weymouth.
If Sutton beat us they could go top quite an incentive for them

Stream will be available, might want to watch with the sound off though as the commentators are dreadful.

Ours should be a decent game at Chesterfield, both teams in good form. We're top of the form table mainly because we've finally sorted our defence out whilst continuing to score at a good rate. 3 pts would leave us outside the play offs only on GD however a point wouldn't be a bad result as I expect a tough game.

Dave Thomas (one of the co-commentators for Torquay)... well, let's just say, if you are an insomniac and need a bit of kip, tune in... he'll have you asleep before kick-off. And if you like your commentary full of 'Erm' and 'Err' and very long pauses between indecipherable shite, definitely tune in. I've started watching TQ home games with the sound off.

Sooooo glad we got rid of Gannon. Who wants to chase promotion with a successful manager, when you can struggle to score under some random youth team coach instead?

Forget 4D chess, this is 7D backgammon right here
