Well, same as, how will you do in March?

Rochdale A - Draw. Need to be getting something from this one, but our record at Spotland isn't great, nor is our away form of late. Hopeful we can grab a draw though as Rochdale aren't in great form and we owe them a bit of payback for the 2 hammerings they gave us at Gresty Road earlier in the season.

Scunthorpe H - Win. Their away form is pretty good, only 1 defeat in their last 10 league trips. But we have to target a win here. Hopefully we'll get a win here.

Preston A - Lose. I know we have a curse over them in recent years, but I just don't see that lasting. They are in good form at the moment and I think they'll end the hex and beat us.

Bristol City A - Lose. They seem able to easily beat off the lower teams at Ashton Gate, just the better teams they struggle somewhat with. Reckon they'll win this one.

Oldham H - Draw. Be interesting to see where they are and what form they are in come this game. They always do well at Gresty Road, we need to end that run here. Think we'll only manage a draw though.

Sheff U - Lose. They dominated us in the 2 games earlier in the year and seem pretty stingy at Brammall Lane. Think we'll lose by the odd goal.

Very tough month for us, those away games are killers and the home games are no picnic either. 5 points from 18 wouldn't be a great return, it would likely see us back in the bottom 4. Got to hope for some miracle in those 3 trips to the promotion chasers.

Just saw yours before I posted mine so:

Christ. You'd think at some point we'd have some time off?

3 away, 2 home, 1 neutral 1 home. It's a tough month. But from a position of 8 points clear (Preston game in hand ignored) & 70 points on 28th Feb? We're surely well set.

03/03 - Orient Away. Poor at home v decent away. 3 points please.
07/03 - Crawley Away. A slight pick up in form for a home team in our spell of playing 3 of the current bottom 4 away. 9 out of 9 points would be ideal but I'll settle for 7/9. So a draw.
10/10 - Yeovil Away. Must be a win. They are terrible. This puts us a game ahead of the rest of the pack, as it's our league game from the JPT final weekend. The psychological impact of opening out a lead here cannot be understated so we simply must win.
14/03 - Gillingham Home. Gillingham? Again? 3 points or go home.
17/03 - Crewe Home. After our away defect nothing but 3 points please.
22/03 - Walsall Wembley JPT final. I don't really mind either way on this....
28/03 - Barnsley Home. Our first weekend game without a midweek game preceeding it since 7th Feb. 7 weeks of two games a week. Not sure what the previous weekend will end up with but I can imagine a flat weekend and a single point here.

So 6 league games. 3 home. 3 away. Hopefully 14 points out of 18. Would put us on 84 by April when we play Swindon & Preston.

Not gonna predict scores but if we can get to 80 before the jpt game, im very confident we can go on and finish the job. So thats 10 points from 5 games all against relegation strugglers.

Yeovil A: Win.
Gillingham H: Draw, surely they are due a result.
Crewe H: Lose, these fuckers have the sign over us.
Walsall N: Win
Barnsley H: Win

JPT trophy and eleven from six.

Oldham H - Win, they seems to be in chaos, were flying and at home 3-1
Coventry A - Win, fancy us especially if we go into looking for a fifth win in five 2-0
Swindon H - Lose, bogey side 0-1
Crawley H - Win, awful at their place against us so at Vale Park I'd fancy us to turn them over 3-1
Sheffield United A - Lose, tough assignment and think we will lose 1-2
Orinet A - They are improving so will be tricky, draw here 1-1

On paper not a bad month Swindon and Sheff United will be tough although Swindon are having a bad patch but the others are all games we should be looking to get something in. Heading into it in our best form of the season and looking decent we should be confident.... But this is Vale so will probably cock it up!

As for us, the players are going to be fucked at the end of this month! Hopefully cotts manages them well..

We could win them all, as it ain't the toughest month but 14 points will do fine.

Doncaster (H) - 3/3/15 - Donny are a good side in good form, we need to win our home games though if we are to get 2nd. WIN.
MK Dons (A) - 7/3/15 - Should be a couple of thousand of us there with it being a huge game and the special offer on the train. We will draw, as we always do with MK Dons. DRAW
Crewe (H) - 14/3/15 - Need to win and break the curse. WIN.
Posh (H) - 17/3/15 - They look to have improved since Ferguson was sacked. Will be a tough game but we have a good record at home to them. WIN.
Barnsley (A) - 21/3/15 - Gentry Day, big following, PNE. All adds up to a defeat. LOSE.
Fleetwood (A) - 29/3/15 - First competitive game away at Fleetwood, live on Sky, a boring 0-0 draw is in order. DRAW.

11 points from 18. Not enough so I hope I am wrong. April is the big month so if we are still in touch by then, anything can happen.

We need to get four points minimum out of our next two, six preferably. I think we can get two or three from the other four but critical we don't go into those remaining four games of the month needing more than that.

Coventry A - Cup hangover Lose
Notts County A - Draw

Loads of games coming up, don't think we have the squad capable of keeping up the play off push. Think March will be the end of that.

Why's it excellent?

It's fucking disgusting what some of these delusional foreign fuckwits are doing to some British football clubs.

It's the Orient fans that'll suffer, in the long run.

Yes it is but we play Orient soon and wouldn't mind taking points off them

Sumit like that. We should still be safe on the basis that we just beat anyone 16th or lower.

Walsall H - WIN because we absolutely have to.
Oldham H - WIN see above.
Bristol City H - DRAW more by luck than judgement.
Leyton Orient A - LOSE we rarely beat the teams around us, and we're terrible away.
Colchester A - LOSE see above.
Rochdale A - 0-0 DRAW after 2 away defeats in a row, all 10 outfield players are named as defenders and Skivo hails a 'great point'.

Enough to keep us in touch. Just.
