13/18 points. If we pulled that off, we'd have 87 points after 39 games.

A busy month although by the end of it we'll have played all our games in hand (they are the home matches V Wycombe and Portsmouth)

A new owner and a new manager is the main priority, although we probably still need a couple more points to be totally safe. Hopefully against Dagenham and Yeovil.

That is one tough run of home fixtures for Stanley. Still, you're by far the best team I've seen this season, so I think you'll come through relatively unscathed and still hanging on to Oxford and Plymouth's respective coattails.

What makes you think you'll get beat off us?

Think somewhere along the way we will come unstuck, might be Wimbledon or you, could be both. Think Del Boy may score too, I'll be so drunk I'll probably celebrate it.

Asamoah? He is the sort of player we are proud to have playing for us and the strikers pace he has at his age is unbelievable!

A mixed set of fixtures there, 3 playoffs rivals at home plus champions-to-be Northampton, whilst away games at 2 relegation candidates and a midtable Exeter.
I'm sure Dagenham will get their first home win when we visit, though I'm quietly confident we can end the Cobblers' unbeaten run.

13pts out of 21, probably enough to keep us in the race for a playoff place.

The month of the away marathon. Fine by me though since we're better away.

Cambridge A Win
Newport A Draw
Stevenage H Win
Accrington A Draw
Carlisle A Win. The much-loved Paul Hayes with a 96th minute winner then moons the away support, sadly getting a sharpened coin thrown in between his arse cheeks into the process.
Mansfield H Lose. Why not? Any club that can afford to get rid of Rakish must be shit hot.
Notts County A Draw

On paper (or even on screen, smart arses) that looks way too optimistic, so if we even get within 4 points of the above I'd be well chuffed.

A poor March for a mediocre mid table league two side.

I love the bloke! Played for us about 12 years ago, went around the world to various leagues and I was buzzing when he rocked up at Carlisle.

Would certainly take 12 points (and potentially 9 or 10), tough month...

12 points from 3 wins and 3 draws would be a great result. 10 points might be more like it though.

Probably less than 10 points, We're having an odd season where we give the top clubs a hard time, beat the bottom clubs but are rubbish against mid table sides. I think generally it's because we can defend against good sides, nick a goal and be a pain or we can attack and beat a poor side, but when we go toe-to-toe with a half decent side we come unstuck (Luton, Mansfield, Cambridge & Notts County spring to mind). We should beat Hartlepool, I'd like to think we will win one of the other home games and pick up some points on the road. As long as we get more than 6 points I wont much care as I think that will probably be enough for safety, especially if it includes wins against York and Hartlepool..

But you both know: "We always win at Sixfields," (well almost always). One of my few pre-Conference away trips was the 2-2 in 2005 (bloody Scott McGleish) but I think you've got to go back to October 1995, the days of League Division 3, for our only defeat at Sixfields.

We're usually rubbish in the league December, so 10 points maintained a run and papered over some cracks. January delivered 5 points and February 6 points. I'd be happy with 7 or more points from March to maintain our run for mid-table comfort. Heart says I'd like wins against Wycombe and Northampton (we always win at Sixfields) and a draw to reward the trip to Bristol. Head suggests 3 draws and a win is the best I can hope for and it could easily go downhill quickly.

Very tough month for us, I feel we need at least 8/9 points but we'll do well to get that from those final 4 games. Stranger things have happened but we've not beaten a side in the top 12 all season. If we've not beaten 1 by the end of March then we probably won't even finish in the top half!

It's a tough month - only Exeter and Yeovil look remotely "nice". Crucial we win those and try to get a few points here and there. I can see us struggling to reach your target of 7 though.

With a relatively easy set of fixtures (on paper) compared to Acccrington's, and playing three of the bottom five all at home, it would be disappointing to not extend the gap to fourth place.

Side prediction - Jabo will tombstone piledrive Zoko into the penalty spot after he scores his tenth vs Yeovil.

Only one defeat for us this month, but I don't know whether it will be Exeter or Yeovil who'll inflict it on us, but I'm sticking with the former. Either way it will be a very poor performance and a meltdown on our forum will follow.

btw, Williamson will show the Gas fans why we think he is a much better striker than that ginger crybaby ;)

Barnet a got a feeling we may Nick this one we've been good away theyve been good at home.

Oxford h we've won our last 2 at home so hopefully a bit of confidence is back in the home matches but think we'll lose

Accrington a probably best team we've played this season when they were down at home park would take and think we may get a draw

Luton h after 3 very hard games we need to win this one and i think we will

Morecombe a they seem to be struggling at home so think we may pick up 3 points

York h teams at the bottom start picking up points at this time of season but we need to be beating these teams at home and think we will


3 very hard games at start of month will probably decide where we end up this season

13 points out of 18 should keep us in automatics
