Will we see a reaction from managerless The Vision?

I hope we have our own reaction. Although we didn't play badly against Grimsby we didn't take our chances and it cost us the points. Need to get more ruthless.

Laborious 1-0 win vs. Biggleswade. Wouldn't mind a replay actually, nice set up and it's local.

Tough game for Shortwood, can't see them getting anything at Oxford. A Nailsworth FA Cup derby would be great.

Home game against Tranmere on Saturday. At least the circumstances are better than the last time we played them in February (the last win I saw for us last season).

No Pell for us as he's suspended, so either Asa Hall or James Rowe to come in. Either will slot in perfectly. I notice Blissett has been recalled by Bristol Rovers, but I'm not sure how much Tranny will miss him. Regardless, I'm confident of a win at home, and I've not said that for a long, long time.

Hopefully Gateshead will do FGR and we can hit the summit for longer than 20 mins.

Chelmsford away. That will be fairly tough. Got enough about us to get the win though.

Wasnt recalled, his loan ended and we decided not to renew it, he wont be missed at all. Hopefully Mangan and Norwood start together up front, think we have won every game that has happened so far, theyre starting to get a real partnership going together. Unclear as to who will start in defence with Hogan, Holness and RIley all doubtful, although Ihiekwe can slot in easily.

Hopefully we go for the win as on our day i think we are more than capable, just depends what half we show up for.

Ill go for 1-1, Norwood with our goal, 350 Tranmere fans.

Bishop's Stortford away. It'll be a 'thrilling' 1-1 draw or we'll lose.

Bit annoyed about that, Blissett looked absolutely dire against us in pre-season. As Si Robin said Pell will be missing for us but Hall and Rowe are both fully capable of filling in for him. 5 home wins in a row for us so hopefully we can keep that going, have a feeling this one may be a draw though.

This is a strange one. I have absolute respect for the start Cheltenham have made, but when I go on their message board (and here, to be fair) and see some making themselves out to be 'a big club' and 'title contenders' at this early stage, it does irk me that we are being massively underestimated in this game and, dare I say it, disrespected a little bit.

That being said, if we play like we did first half on Tuesday we've got no chance in this game. We need that second half side to fire from minute one and we'll definitely be in with a shout. It will be tough, but for both sides, not just us. We've only lost 1 more game than Cheltenham and have the same number of defeats as table-topping FGR. We're capable of playing so poorly it's unreal, but when it does click, which is becoming more often now, we are a handful for anyone.

As for Rowe, he'll have to have bulked up a bit in the summer or he's going to struggle with Harris/Jennings' physicality. Tough game, but I think we'll draw.

You'll win that.

Hoping I can get out of work in time as a mate of mine has agreed to try to make it to Chelmsford in time. Hopefully be between 3 and 400 of us there. Seems to be what we've been taking to games lately.

Can't see us winning at Dover tomorrow night. We haven't done well there in recent times. Hopefully we don't get smashed in front of the nation. Usually when we're on TV something decent happens, like when Giuseppe Sole scored that last minute winner at Luton or when Giuseppe Sole scored that goal at Halifax (see signature). It'll be my fourth visit to Crabble - won one, drawn one, lost one. COYC.

Our record against Cheltenham at Whaddon Road is pants; think we've drawn once and lost the other 4/5. Would snap your hand off for a point. I'd agree with Belmont that there's an irritating element to some of the Robins support and doubt that this will be as easy for the home side as our last visit. However still a home win.

Is Eliot Richards back playing yet? James Rowe was a little lightweight, but skillful player, capable of picking up a goal or two. Could see him scoring against us on Saturday.

There are a few who are somewhat disrespectful to non-league as a whole, clearly forgetting where we came from, but the vast majority aren't taking this division lightly.

However, I won't blame anyone for talking up our chances. The atmosphere at the club is electric at the moment, a World away from what it was at the end of April, beginning of May. We've got a team that have so far come through every test bar one (trying to get 3 points at Alty when 1 would have sufficed). Not only that, we've got a manager who has brought us all together, players, staff, board and fans. He's got us all on board and he's brought the belief back to the club that I haven't seen since the Cotterill days.

After 5 wins in a row at home and one defeat all season (none at home), I don't think it matters who we'd be playing on Saturday, we'd feel confident of winning, especially at home. Doesn't mean we don't think it will be a tough game, I'd expect one off any club in this league, regardless of the position.

Probably best also remembering you've finished above us once in about 25 years. Ironically that was the worst year in our history.. Nonetheless we've gained good results against "in-form" sides this season, so I expect us to turn up and play from the off. 3-2 Rovers win, 2 from Mangan, 1 from Norwood.

Not sure where we've finished in relation to yourselves over the past 25 years has any relevance whatsoever to what I posted, but ok.

By my reckoning it's once in 128 years, but that's by the by.

Renewed optimism and looking forward to Saturday - therefore we'll lose.

So Its league Rivals Tamworth away in the FA Cup tomorrow. A tough draw for both sides. With both teams having drawn more than half of their league games combined so far this season my money is firmly on a replay. Wouldnt surprise me to see Extra Time utilised too.

We're gonna get thrashed, one point from 5 games at Cheltenham. Can't be arsed going, as we're bound to lose! All I remember from last year's game is being stuck on the M5 for an hour and a half on the way there, and a bunch of 8 year olds over to our right giving us gyp at being 2-0 down. Would be made up with a draw, but I'll say 2-1 Cheltenham. Rowe's bound to score.

Literally no excuse tomorrow, they're in turmoil, and I'm not talking about us for once.

Moyses should resign with anything but three points.

James Gray is out tomorrow. That should mean Jennings gets a chance to be a striker once again. He's been great as an attacking midfielder bit I'd like to see him get a few goals against the Vision.

Gurjit Singh has been ruled out of the game tomorrow, very annoying as he's our best goal threat
