Halifax
Dagenham v Eastleigh 7pm
Halifax v Wrexham 7pm
Solihull v Notts County 7pm
Stockport v Kings Lynn 7pm
Sutton v Torquay 7pm
Chesterfield v Boreham 7:45pm
Weymouth v Aldershot 7:45pm
Woking v Bromley 7:45pm
Yeovil v Maidenhead 7:45pm

Games that immediately jump out Sutton v Torquay is a real title shoot out Sutton unbeaten in a while but a fair few draws lately have drawn others in close. Whilst Torquay seem to have got over their midseason wobble and will be confident of taking something.

Halifax v Wrexham is another a real 6 pointer. 7th v 8th. A win for Halifax just gives us some breathing space but Wrexham will be desperate to not let that happen and are capable of getting a result despite their recent poor form. I'm very nervous already.

Elsewhere. Boreham will need to win at Chesterfield if they want to force their way into the play off picture. Eastleigh and Bromley are not out of it either and will need to win to stay in the mix
Maidenhead's recent poor run has meant their games in hand can no longer take them into the play off positions but they won't think they are out of it.

Notts County have a potential banana skin game away at Solihull who seem wildly inconsistent but have some decent wins under their belts this season.

Varying kick off times.

I wouldn't worry. We look devoid of ideas, crumble at the first set back and if we have Dibble in goal he's always good for a clanger or two. We are on the deathslide to 10th.

5/4 is outstanding odds for Halifax to beat us. We've never beaten them at the Shay in the league and are currently in a massive downwards spiral.

Keates will play for the 0-0 but even the defence seem to have given up. I think it'll be another thumping.

The game against Boreham Wood is the first of 3 home games for us in a row as we look to build on our current form of 5 wins in 5!

All of the home games are against sides with something to play for in regards the play offs (BW, Bromley & Halifax) so all will be difficult tests, but given our home form under Rowe I’m hopeful we can get 6/7 points out of that lot (preferably 9)

1st place is definitely out of reach for us in my opinion unless Sutton hit the self-destruct button (which I honestly cannot see given their consistency this year), but I’m sure Rowe is looking at those 2nd and 3rd places to try and get into before the end of the season

Yeovil v Maidenhead was called off the other day.
Was just going off the BBC sport fixtures. I did wonder at the time of posting but I assumed the BBC Sport Website would be accurate.

I hate playing Boreham Wood, not sure why, always seems to be a boring, niggly game with that clown Ashmore causing trouble as per usual.

Would love nothing more than to batter these. We're 5 from 5 so tbh we are due a draw or defeat, and this is exactly the type of team/game we might struggle to break down.

I have that horrible yet somehow exciting big match nerves feeling. This is mainly down results at the weekend whilst we weren’t playing.
It’s nice to have a home game after 4 straight away games. Yes we’ve drawn a lot of games, but considering some of the fixtures we’ve had in that run, I’m not overly disappointed with that.
For me, the pressure is on Torquay to get the win tomorrow - a draw means we go back on top with 3 games in hand over Hartlepool and maintain a 5 point lead over Torquay (with a game in hand).

They're not called Boring Wood for no reason. I'm sure they've scored and conceded at a very similar level for years now.

I can't work out whether Garrard is a genuinely decent manager who'll kick on at some point, or a risk averse one.

Garrard should be under pressure IMO - their squad should be finishing in the top seven.

If Saturdays result wasnt already tomorrows game is a must win for Notts to have any chance at top.

I am hoping we put together a run to get us third, even 2nd looking increasingly difficult.

We cant play 3-5-2 any more it has to be 4-2-3-1/4-3-3. We are missing to much going forward with the former.

We still have a capable side without Roberts but Wootton needs to find his form again and quick.

Manager of the Month... can't remember if there's still a curse, it's been so long since we had one to worry about.

Hopefully we will see Enzio restored to an advanced position, and I’d like to see Rodrigues back in the starting XI too. No point just trying to absorb pressure and cross after cross again like at Pools, or the opening v Wrexham. Let’s take the game to them from the start for a change.

You're only 3 points ahead of us not 5. Win by 2 goals and we go above you.

This side are used to coping with pressure at this stage of the season, Johnson has been here before multiple times and our experienced players like Hall Wright and Moxey have all been promoted from this league. Plus a fair few are still here from the NLS promotion where they had to come from a fair few points adrift to overhaul Woking

So playing under pressure isn't an issue. Whether we have the ability is another question entirely. We are slowly getting a bit of our old passing game back but it's still not there yet (and don't think your pitch is really conducive to that is it?). Still lacking pace and width without Nemane and Whitfield so I'm expecting a dull scrappy affair.

I saw that Randall missed your last game, will he be fit? I was impressed with him at Plainmoor.

Yeh not a chance of getting first. Too many teams to get past...they won't all drop the required amount of points.

Glad Rowe is talking promotion and not play offs though. There's not much point in getting into the playoffs unless you win them!

For some reason I forgot to add your win on Saturday. Still with you not playing next Saturday, there is more pressure on yourselves to win tomorrow.

The 3G pitch is pretty much designed for playing passing Football on the ground (those who claim they can’t aren’t actually teams that would play passing Football on the ground).

Randall is likely going to be out, he went off in the Stockport home game, missed 2 games, started against Boreham Wood on Good Friday and went off injured again before halftime. We’ve signed a guy today on loan from Millwall, who plays on the left.

All over that. I’ve never been so sure of a defeat tbh.

The worst thing about playing Halifax is all the emojis you have to put up with, whatever the result
Get him on ignore and you can avoid all the emojis and threads with titles in all caps about subjects that definitely could've been talked about in any of the other threads.

Yes a big game for us and probably a draw. We are badly missing Whitfield and Nemane massive part of our attacking play. Probably out for the season Nemane. Our main central defender also been out for weeks and he hopefully back in a couple of weeks.

Big game for us tonight. Win by 2 clear goals and we leapfrog Sutton into 2nd.

We have the best GF (52) and they, along with Stockport, have the best defence (only 26 in the GA column).
Cue a drab 0-0 (and to be fair, I'd take that given our injury problems and the fact that Sutton have only lost 4 games all season).

We've hopefully come out the other side of our miserable slump which saw us drop down to 3rd and now have a mountain to climb to overtake Sutton if we are to seriously challenge for top spot.
