Tranmere Rovers
Aldershot v Boreham Wood
Bromley v Torquay
Cheltenham v Halifax
Chester v Welling
Dover v Grimsby
Eastleigh v Altrincham
Forest Green v Woking
Gateshead v Braintree
Kidderminster v Barrow
Macclesfield v Guiseley
Southport v Lincoln City
Tranmere v Wrexham

So Cheltenham will probably win the league, and Kiddy and Welling will be relegated this weekend. Dover v Grimsby will more or less sort out who has the really long midweek away trip in the play offs. Tranmere v Wrexham doesn't seem to have generated the level of excitement one might have expected in north Wales, as they've only sold 1,100 last time I checked. Understandable of course - all the shepherds are busy at this time of year ;) Alty beating Eastleigh would be great, as would Gateshead derailing the Braintree play off charge.

No game at all for us after the club Decided to move our game with Nuneaton to a time earlier in the season when we where struggling badly, low on confidence, could buy a win and Nuneaton where on fire. :hb::hb:

I'll be in the away end at Forest Green in fits of hysterical laughter that they haven't won the league. Hopefully Dale Vince flicks the V at us again. :woo:

With FGR's decent home record I can see nothing but a 2/3-0 win for them tomorrow.

Hope we save our long overdue win for the last day to stop Eastleigh getting in the playoffs.

Where we haven't scored a goal since beating Eastleigh 2-1 on 20 February, in our last three games we haven't found the back of the net...if you come expecting a goal-fest you will go home as disappointed as someone hoping for a half time beefburger!

Party time at the World of Smile tomorrow with near enough a sell out crowd expected. All set up nicely for Halifax to spoil everything :D

We even managed to concede 2 against Welling who hadn't won in TWENTY THREE games.

Despite your recent form I would be pretty surprised if you don't win comfortably.

Hurst usually pulls one out of the bag after poor form but I don't expect that tomorrow. I expect a 2-1 defeat and us being left on the edge of the playoffs.

Big game for us away at Southport.

No Stanley or McCombe I don't think. Power and Caton probably back. Suspect Rhead will be back in the starting line-up.

We are at home to Guiseley tomorrow. Luckily for us Ritchie Branagan's red card appeal was successful so at least we have a goalkeeper now. Not really expecting any changes to the team that started against Dover except for Danny Whitehead who went off injured so may not feature. I haven't seen Guiseley play for a couple of years now so not completely sure what to expect from them - hopefully they will have switched off after their midweek win.

We have a few injury concerns for tomorrow, two of them are Bennett and Frear, who are probably our most creative players. Also likely missing will be Parkin. His likely replacement should be either Williams or Moore, who both bagged a brace earlier in the week in a 4-3 win against Bristol Rovers in the Gloucestershire Cup. From memory we don't have the best of records against Woking and I'm not confident that we will win tomorrow, if Pennock sets the team up to sneak a 1-0 win then we might be in trouble.

Probably a good thing that tomorrow doesnt matter for us because we could have 8 or 9 out - McGinty, Oastler, Pavey (who has gone back to Milwall for treatment) and Lathrope are out for the season. Smith, Saville, Oliver and Dan Walker all didnt play because of injury/illness at Halifax and from Barry Smith's interview he didn't seem too confident that we would have anyone back. Charlie Walker and Lafayette are guaranteed starts if they are fit since they are now our only strikers.

Based on that I guess the team picks itself:

Thomas

Alexander
Beckles
Barker
Richards

Browne
Stevenson
Gallagher
Ralph (Rasulo started last week but I'd prefer Ralph to start tomorrow)

C.Walker
Lafayette

If I was your manager I would start Williams, he likes scoring against Woking ;)

Huge game for us tomorrow, could make ourselves safe with a win and results elsewhere are kind. Lots of injury problems though, think there must have been a sniper in the crowd at Sincil Bank last week as Hughes, Heneghan and Hannah all limped off and George has been struggling since as well.

Just get it done please Chester, for christ sake.

Not a chance of that we NEED points. I'll take a guess that all eleven play out the game defending our penalty box.
A rip roaring end to end spectacle - NOT!

Tomorrow is a must win, regardless of other results; if Eastleigh or Braintree slip up then we need to take advantage and gain a small cushion.

Had hoped this would be a very big attendance, but the lack of social media interest and mediocre Wrexham following suggests to me it'll be no more than 8,000.

I'm guessing 6,750. There seems to be a total lack of buzz around the game.

The World of Smile, jesus fucking christ, that post was the equivalent to a half-and-half scarf. #vomit

I have nothing to say about our match. I will be slaving away at work instead, I'm not sure which will be worse.

Normally in the 24 hours or so before a match starts, I get this feeling we might get a result. Doesn't matter who we're playing. There's always that little bit of hope.

However, I genuinely cannot see how we're going to get a result tomorrow. Even if the opposition were to have a man sent off in the first minute, I don't think we'd win. We're that poor and lacking in confidence.

My strong advice to you all is to lump on Eastleigh. It's like buying money.

Crowd at Prenton Park will be disappointing, guess around 7k. Remarks from the chair and club captain in the local press about the quality of support and need to get behind the side when things going wrong, have upset some Rovers fans and perhaps shouldn't have been aired at this point or at least phrased more carefully.

Wrecsam would take great delight in pissing on our chips and ending our play-off prospects. Not confident that won't happen,though on the form book a draw most likely.
