Newport A - Lose
Cheltenham A - Draw
Bury H - Win
Wimbledon H - Lose
Hartlepool A - Draw
York H - Win

Cheltenham, Hartlepool and York are 3 games we really need to be picking points up in. If we could get 7 points from those 3 that would be great! Really can't see us getting anything from Newport, but given our home form and Bury have not been great of late I think that's winnable. It's not going to last forever though so I went for a loss against Wimbledon.

Big month for us and we play Southend, Shrewsbury and Plymouth all in April!

Portsmouth away - 1-0 defeat
Newport away - 1-0 win
Wycombe home - 2-1 win
Northampton away - 2-1 defeat

Another tough month for us, playing 3 teams up the top and 2 of the in form teams. Fancy our form to slightly pick up but not by much.

We're actually 4th in the form guide. Infact this is our best run since the start of the season. We actually win games away from home now.

Obviously we might still lose at your place but us being out of form couldn't be further from the truth.

Ooops, for some reason I thought it was you lot who lost to Hartlepool yesterday. It's going to be a tough game regardless, I don't expect us to roll over like we did last season as you were easily the best side to come here, But I do expect us to be much better than the game at your gaff earlier this season.

Tough for us this month with 3 games against promotion/play-off hopefuls, and 3 against relegation threatened ones. Not expecting anything other than a defeat at Shrewsbury and Southend (imo, the best sides we've met), but don't think we'll get beaten by any of the sides currently below us. Reckon we'll get 6 points, which should be good enough to steer us further out of trouble.

York (H) Draw
Shrewsbury (A) Loss
Stevenage (H) Draw
Tranmere (H) Win
Southend (A) Loss
Hartlepool (A) Draw

Looking at these fixtures, I would say the Stevenage and the Pools match are the hardest to predict, especially the latter match if, by the time we play them, Pools are still in with a chance of staying up and need the 3 points at all cost.

Well, we have

Cheltenham (H)
Exeter (H)
York (A)
Northampton (A)
Morecambe (H)
Oxford (A)

this month is either going to go very well or very badly for us... we'll either get 3 points from all six games and it will be curtains, or we'll get 12 points and relegation fears be damned.

We've been alright at home, none of the sides we've got this month at home scare me in the slightest, but given the nature of this league anything can happen.

5 or 6 points should do the job. If we can beat York or Tranmere (or ideally both) plus nab a couple of draws then we'll be just about safe come the end of March.

Mixed month for us with an easier middle. 4 home games out of 6 so we really need to capitalise. 11 more points from 6 games to give us 66 from 39 games.

Wycombe H Always seem to do better away against the Chairboys and they're capable of frustrating tactics only to grab a goal or two on the break LOSE
Dagenham & Redbridge H They're a fellow struggler, so we should lose, but think we might go ultra-defensive and scrape a draw. DRAW
Northampton A Think we might throw away the form book and grab a sneaky point here. DRAW
Cambridge A Managed to grab a late draw in Birkenhead with 10 men, so likely winners with the full compliment LOSE
Burton H An entertaining game, McGurk or Akins bound to score against us (tempting a Weir hat-trick) DRAW
Wimbledon H Might just edge this WIN

6 points would take us to 40 and still deep in the brown stuff.

This is how it'll go if we beat Cheltenham in the first game. If we don't then we're truly done for and all of my predictions will be wrong.

11 points out of 18 would be a good return, especially if we take points from teams around us. However, I can't see us only losing 1.

Interesting that you think you'll get something from Southend who are right up there and beat Northampton who have been in great form yet lose to York who are shocking!

You fail to realise both Southend and Northampton are home games, we have the 2nd or 3rd best home record in the league.

The smart money with any game against York is to plump for a draw. That's all they seemingly ever do - with the occasional loss chucked in

Pompey (H) - Draw
Plymouth (A) Draw
Tranmere (H) Win
Carlisle (H) Win
Bury (A) Lose
Luton (H) Win

This would of been my prediction for the month. Better start than expected beating Pompey yesterday, I would say we need at least 10 points from the 15 now available to keep ourselves in the playoff hunt.

Well we got 8 out of 18, 3 points less than I predicted. Not too bad but we are still massively in the relegation fight.

Well we got a few more points than I expected. I actually now think there's a slight chance we'll avoid finishing bottom. I can't see there being 2 teams bad enough to finish below us (unfortunately) but if Cheltenham's form continues and they only get a couple more points, we'll finish above them. So slightly more optimistic, not through our own greatness, more through other teams poor form.
Still think we're certs for the drop, but feel there's a slight chance we might avoid the embarrassment of finishing 92/92.

I predicted 8, we got 7. Not end of the world but yesterday's battering may take some getting over. With 3 tough games to come we really need to get at least 3 points from them. Then make it count against Tranmere and Cambridge or we will go into the final 2 games still not safe!

We took 3 points from a possible 18 and consequently we're closer to the drop than I would have liked. Dire month.

I thought Rovers would get 6 points, but for the second month running we only managed four, leaving it all to do if we're to stay up.
