With the top 3 being away we have a good chance to potentially gain some vital ground. If we don't beat Telford at this point we don't fucking deserve to finish in the play-offs nevermind go up.

Halifax vs Barnet is likely to be P-P.
Which other matches are under threat of postponement?

Halifax are holding a Pitch inspection at 9.30 tomorrow morning.

You couldnt beat Nuneaton at home who are comfortably the worst in the league. We even did the double on them without conceding! So I wouldnt count your chickens. Telford have improved under their new Manager.

The Games at

Kidderminster
Southport
Wrexham
and possibly Braintee Id say.

Woking fans - I presume their isnt any chance of a frozen pitch or anything down there? And their is no planned pitch inspection?

Not sure you can use that as an example seeing as it was the second game of the season, we were garbage our first few games. We're arguably in our best form of the season at the minute with Palmer settled and Jolley signed. Not winning tomorrow would be mortifying.

True mate. However football is a funny old game and it really doesnt matter if it is game 2 or game 44 you failed to beat them and those two lost points could be crucial. It would have taken you above Macc and Rovers right now. One of our wins against them came after our start w ere we lost our opening 7 games.

Regardless i expect you to win by two clear goals

I'd think that Woking's pitch will be fine.

We've had no snow here and it's stopped raining now and isn't supposed to rain between now and 3 tomorrow except a slight shower in the early hours. Game should be on.

Sounds as though Adams and Bencherif will return from injury and illness respectively. Nolan returns from suspension.

Marshall appears to be out along with Robinson, Miller, Power, Jordan and Diagne.

If we can't beat 'Alfreton' then what's the point.

Our game would be doubtful if tomorrow was 31st July never mind January.

Yep, Braintree's website says it's in doubt and they're hoping to get a local ref to look at it early (tonight/tomorrow first thing).

Apparently a pitch inspection at 8 am.

Looking forward to tomorrow as it feels like an eternity since we last played. One game in four weeks is a killer.

Dartford won't make it easy for us, I know that much, but we should be confident of going there and winning. I won't make any bold predictions though as it looks like we will be without Stuart Sinclair and that weakens us significantly in midfield.

Agree with Clarkey you can't really say not beating Nuneaton at home in Game 2 when we weren't at our best and had plenty of injuries and suspensions compared to now were we are playing excellently signed new players is going to have any effect on Telford at home tomorrow.

That said this is Grimsby and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if we failed to win. It would certainly bring the fickle fishy forum guys back down to Earth who only 3 weeks ago were calling Hurst clueless and never going to get us promoted to now thinking we will win the league comfortably because we have won a couple, signed a few and got knocked out the trophy! If only football was as easy as most of those posters think.

Our game with Nuneaton should be fine tomorrow, very slight chance of snow overnight, but it will be very, very cold at the top of the hill.

When isn't it?

Should win this one, probably wont be pretty but I can see us being fairly comfortable, providing we score first.

Should beat Welling comfortably tomorrow. Having said that though, this season this is the kind of game we have lost on the back of some good results.

Only slight thing that concerns me is that dreadful bobbly pitch they have, caught us out last year trying to pass around on it.

Surely Hughes' and Mahon's pace will be too much for Darren Purse though?

Our pitch is covered so we should be fine, meant to be around +4/5 degrees at kick off.
I'm more worried we haven't got any extra players for the game having heard we were supposed to be bringing players in.

Surprised Urban hasn't predicted our defeat yet. Maybe the chance of postponement is putting him off.
