Barrow v Boreham Wood
Braintree v Kiddermister
Bromley v Welling United
Dover v Southport
Eastleigh v Cheltenham
Macclesfield v Torquay

A real mixture tonight. Crucial games at both ends of the table, some mammoth midweek trips and even a local derby chucked in for good measure as Bromley host a doomed Welling United side.

We've not had a bad week, but apparently under the surface three months of almost non-stop rain has left it drenched. Probably not our last postponement this season.

Barrow sign Hearn on loan for a month - most of Barrow's games are off and hardly plays.
Barrow sign Tomlinson for a month - most of Barrow's games are off and...

Must be something about Barrow and signing Imp/ex-Imp strikers on loan!

And former Alfreton strikers too.

First time I've ever wanted Eastleigh to win.
The title is already gone. Accept it and you'll never have to lower yourself to that level.

As for us, well we could really do with favours from Cheltenham, Kiddy, Torquay and Southport but I won't hold my breath over the last 3. Hope to be proved wrong though.

I refuse to accept it until we're 20 points behind, which may be tonight.

We know what we need to do, and we can do it with a lot less pressure on us now, thanks to Barrow.

Let's hope Eastleigh's February form continues into March.

We had Steven Rigg from Carlisle who played four minutes! There's three new lads, two have been here for three weeks and only played once. Would it work better if the league permitted 6-game loans, for example?

We at home to bottom of the Table Telford tonight. Nothing but a win will do against this current Telford side. Real chance to put the first nail in the Telford Coffin too. Confident we can win by a few clear goals but we are better away from home and the only points we have dropped this year have been at home

I feel like tonight is a good night for the away sides. Away wins across the board please.

Huge game for Eastleigh who need to turn it around or they'll beat Aldershot to the mid table title. Can Braintree keep getting lucky with injuries and suspensions? Dover seem to be winning then losing.

I've worked it out to be 77 points for 5th, possibly on GD. Dover and Braintree both on course for that but fixture congestion may get the better of them.

Fear the unbeaten run will come to an end tonight, although I said that at Tranmere as well so we'll see. Would take a point if offered it now.

In case anyone's interested, we are at home to Torquay tonight. Two out of form teams so I wouldn't be surprised if this one finished 0-0.

Why don't you like Telford? I hope they stay up and I think they might just do it!

We've won two in a row for the first time this season, and you call us out of form!?

The cheek!!

I think we're going to get absolutely humped tonight. I'd take a narrow defeat and keeping the goal difference down.

Edit: No Louis Almond for us tonight either. There goes any small chance we had!

So for the 4th time this season I start to follow a game vs Torquay where we sound like we've started brightly and no mention of the opposition, to be swiftly followed out of nowhere by "Goal Torquay".
