Dover v Tranmere for me. Should be a good game. Last time I was down there it was rained off halfway through, hopefully that doesn't happen again! Etty, you about for this one?

I don't think we've won at Macclesfield since Sutton guided us to a 1-0 win there back in '09 and that was the last time I was at Moss Rose. Vaguely remember it being a penalty (Rene Howe scoring, maybe?).

We need to be winning these games if we're serious about keeping this Play-Off push malarkey alive. Only Stanley out. Don't think Hearn will be in the squad.

Who are Alfreton playing?
No idea, but the Match Report will appear here in due course, followed by Sparrow's nervous breakdown.

For me, I'm glad I can't make our game against Torquay. Don't think the old ticker can handle the disappointment.

Away at struggling Hednesford Town.

A team we have already beaten 4-0 in the league and 4-2 in FA Cup qualifying. They appear a bit of a laughing stock and a shambles at the moment. Confident of a comfortable win but with the amount of points we have dropped against weaker sides you just never know

We need a win just as much as Lincoln on Saturday, just to end our awful home run. For those of you who like your statistics we haven't won at home in the league since beating Bromley in mid November (nearly 4 months) and we've only scored three goals so far this year, which is terrible form considering we've played Torquay three times, Kidderminster and Altrincham recently and failed to win any. Given this, I'm backing Lincoln to win fairly comfortably.

Given both clubs respective form we should win this, however we are usually the side you should want to play if you're on a bad run.

Well, we cant be any worse than Tuesday....
We said that after losing 7-1 to Blackburn in a pre season friendly, we then lost 7-0 to Birmingham.. back in the days when we had players like Jason Koumas who was a full Welsh international.

Quite looking forward to Saturday really, not the half six start in the morning though.

We SHOULD really win fairly comfortably but we certainly won't be taking anything for granted.

Yeah he's a class act no doubt but I think we'll have too much pace for him

That's why we have Ihiekwe playing alongside, very quick. Personally expecting a stalemate and a 0-0 or 1-0 either way.

We'll concede. 2-2 or 3-2

If McNulty's fit we might get something from this. Ihiekwe, his partner in central defence does have some pace. Despite the dodgy goal and niggly/time-wasting by Dover at our place,they were clearly the better side that day and could have won more comfortably by sticking to playing football.

Yeah Ihiekwe and Mcnulty complement each other well, Mcnulty reads the game incredibly well and the times he doesn't Ihiekwe is there to clean up with his pace. If we play to our strengths which we didnt do on Tuesday we should win, if we give them too much respect and hoof it up to Higdon all game we'll struggle.

With our inconsistency and the fact we have only won 3/21 points so far against 22nd,20th and 16th in the league. You may well be right we are very hard to predict.

Going 13 games unbeaten immediately after being 11 games without a single win shows that.
