Should be straight forward wins for Tranmere, Gateshead, Grimsby and Dover. Braintree will find it tougher than 2 or 3 weeks ago, but you'd still fancy them at Torquay.

Battle of the in-form teams at Eastleigh. Combined they've managed 3 wins in their last 20 games!

You obviously havn't seen our record against Southport!
2 wins in 11 games against them, and we have never beaten them at Blundell Park in 5 attempts, always play shit here against them for some reason.

Time to lay our Southport home hoodoo to bed tonight. Although we've won there a couple of times, we have never beaten Southport at home in our previous 5 attempts (3 draws, 2 defeats).

Having won at FGR on Friday it would be just like us to go and lose tonight.

Hopefully we'll lay this particular ghost to bed.

the definition of a bogey team then!

We travel to Aggborough to face Worcester City for the final time tonight, aiming to make it 6 away wins in a row

Chester away for us, if we play anywhere near as bad as Saturday we'll get beat. Just about to head to the ground to get the coach up!

If we can't make the play-offs, let's make sure some Hobby Club can't either.

Come on you Cards.

Altrincham v Gateshead- Home win
Barrow v Boreham Wood- don't care. Barrow?
Bromley v FC Halifax Town- Up the Fax!
Chester v Aldershot- Away win
Dover v Welling United- Away win
Eastleigh v Woking- Away win
Grimsby v Southport- Away win
Guiseley v Tranmere- Home win
Torquay United v Braintree Town- Home win

That's what id like please. Pretty unlikely but if at least Torquay and Altrincham get results ill be moderately happy.

We need a convincing win against Welling tonight to act as a springboard for two massive games at home Tranmere and Lincoln in the next week. If we can somehow take 9 points from those games then a play-off place is ours to lose.

What I think will happen:
Altrincham v Gateshead- Draw
Barrow v Boreham Wood- Draw
Bromley v FC Halifax Town- Draw
Chester v Aldershot- Away win
Dover v Welling United- Home win
Eastleigh v Woking- Home win
Grimsby v Southport- Home win
Guiseley v Tranmere- Away win
Torquay United v Braintree Town- Away win

What I want to happen:
Altrincham v Gateshead- Home win
Barrow v Boreham Wood- Home win
Bromley v FC Halifax Town- Away win
Chester v Aldershot- Don't care
Dover v Welling United- Home win
Eastleigh v Woking- Away win
Grimsby v Southport- Away win
Guiseley v Tranmere- Home win
Torquay United v Braintree Town- Home win

Can maybe see Torquay getting a point, likewise Woking.

Tranmere should win, as should Dover, which is pretty near-fatal news for the pack. Come on Welling and Guiseley, you useless fuckers.

We were reffed out of a point at Prenton Park in the 93rd minute. Only fair for that generosity to be applied to the home side this evening :)

Tonight is another night where away wins across the board would be pretty nice.. Not so fussed about Braintree if we create a bigger gap over Dover and Wrexham.

We're going for back-to-back wins for the first time this season! And a first home win of 2016. Seems strange because we've played well of late.
We're basically setting up for next season now, but a win here is important to avoid slipping into a relegation battle.
I'm going 3-0.

I'm hoping to get to Guiseley tonight, if I can get through the Manchester and Bradford traffic? I don't think the result of this game is a forgone conclusion as many posters on here seem to think. If Tranmere can maintain the level of performance of the last 2 games then we should take something from it. I wouldn't be too upset with a point.

Tonight looks like the night where we may drop out the race.. Although two home games coming up v Boreham Wood and Chester might keep us interested for the next couple of weeks.

Not a foregone conclusion, but we still need to win.

Off to Guiseley tonight, if Brabin keeps the same team I think we will win.

1-0 Norwood pen, 400 tranmere fans

I'll be hopping over to Guiseley too, but I'm a bit pessimistic about it for some reason. Fingers crossed the lads can do a professional job. Could be an interesting night for the play off competition.

If Guiseley play anywhere near the level they did against us, you'll be in with a battle (we should have lost!). However most teams raise their game against us, but with your decent away following, you should be ok for the win.

Having been undeservedly beaten by Halifax at the weekend, it would be just like us to get a result tonight too, then go on and get turned over at home to Welling on Saturday!

Free entry at Nethermoor this evening for all ladies in celebration of international women's day.

I wonder how many supporters will arrive in 'fancy dress' :D

Really can't be bothered to go today, it's hard to see where the next goal is coming from let alone point. About to head down the M3 though, hopefully there's traffic the whole way and we miss the game.

We can only manage to play that well once every three or four games though
