Bromley v Chesterfield 7:45pm
Eastleigh v Notts County 7:45pm
FC Halifax Town v Woking 7pm
King’s Lynn Town v Stockport County 7pm
Maidenhead United v Weymouth 7:45om
Sutton United v Barnet 7pm
Torquay United v Aldershot Town 7pm
Yeovil Town v Solihull Moors 7pm

A few weeks ago it would have been safe to predict a virtual walkover at Gander Green Lane, however Barnet go into this game as the form team whilst Sutton are out of sorts.

One cannot image title favourites Torquay not picking up the win against Aldershot. Big game in Hampshire in the race for the playoffs as Eastleigh buoyed by a couple of big wins take on Notts County

Wait!!! Shayshite gets up early to do the matchday threads!! This is odd! Where IS he??? Ah, wait, we lost last time out didn't we..........that's it I remember now, when we're winning he's all over this fucking forum, when we lose he runs back under his rock. Don't worry guys, I'm here win or lose, rain or shine, day in day out. That's right, I stick with my boys through thick and thin. There's a word for fans like me, what is it now, oh wait I've got it - REAL.

Oh go on then, what's YOUR word for fans like me? :ds: :bdick::woo::woot:

Important really that we don’t lose at Eastleigh, with them just behind us but with us having games in hand. I’d take a point - but all 3 at Alty would thebe essential next weekend, with some tough games in our run in and their demoralising defeat v Barnet.

Saturday’s draw at Torquay was one of the season’s best performances, with signs the side is taking on board Burchnall’s methods. Will probably have a couple out injured tho.

Once again it’s become must win territory. We do tend to bounce back well after a defeat so I’ll back us. We’ll no doubt give away our gamely changer though. I’ll say a hard fought 2-1 win

What's the etiquette when it comes to wanting/hoping/wishing for fellow Brothers to lose tomorrow?

Do I need to give myself 10 lashings for even thinking it?

We have to be beating Woking. If we do we will probably have a cushion again. I'm clinging to the hope we can't be as bad tomorrow as we were on Saturday.
Games too early for Earing which is a big miss for us. So I'd take 1-0. He'll be back for Stockport on Saturday most likely.

Nerves will kick in tomorrow.

We're actually better against the top teams than the bottom ones at times. I do expect Torquay to win, but I wouldn't say it is a guaranteed win.

Very tough game down at Bromley who are on fire atm. Normal circumstances a draw down there would be a great result, but if we’re serious about this play off push we need to start getting wins against the teams in and around us.

Gunna go for an optimistic 2-1 away win, Danny Rowe brace

The last 3 were all "must win" according to you, in fact you said we'd HAD to win them to stay in the race. We lost 2 of them, but guess what, we're STILL in the race!! These football geniuses huh, they know nothing. :fl: :fl: :fl:

Sorry for the delay, was out on a nice walk followed by an hour in my deckchair, as always when the sun's out. Don't worry about me old boy, I'm never on here for more than a few minutes and to be honest give it very little thought, if any, when I'm not. :ds:

We need a win. Played better on Saturday but were garbage against Eastleigh the week before.
We've taken 7pts from 18 and that has to change now if we're hoping to scrape into the playoffs with some sort of momentum.

Shots at Torquay. Expect a defeat, but we are capable of turning it on if enough of the team are up for it. But that’s a rare occurrence. 3-1 Torquay.

Yep a good point is a bad one if its followed by defeat.
We have seen top, 2nd and 3rd become unreachable in the matter of a fortnight.
The form we are on will see us get lodged in mid table by Saturday week.

Have to be getting a win tomorrow simple as that, a draw wouldn't be the end of the world but there more tough games to come so honestly have to win.

Even the banker against Barnet now looks tough. I think we need the win.
Kyle Wootton must be due a goal though.

Eastleigh Schmeastleigh I’ve written the season off. We’ve been pure shite from day 1 and don’t deserve or are in any way good enough to go up. I was hoping the arrival of a new manager might be a bit of a reset, but there’s no hope for this group of players.

The one good thing about Brexit might be that at long last we are unable to sign any more garbage from Europe,,it’s a shame no one’s bringing any rules in against signing old has beens from the EFL. I’ve obviously no idea about a budget for next season but would it be too much to ask to sign a couple of good players of a good age FROM THIS FUCKING LEAGUE???

Says a hell of a lot about our season that we could win all our 9 remaining games and the best we could how for would be 18th.

Just nice to see the team believing in themselves, I'll take any result as long as we give them a game.

Expect Stockport to carry on their relentless title charge, Rusk really has them going now. We need a similar inspired appointment for next season.

Made I laugh! Me thinks Mr Jared is employing a little bit of kidology with this quote.

On paper we should beat Aldershot... but they still have a very slim outside chance of making the play-offs and we have a very tough run-in with games against Eastleigh H (could still makes play-offs), Chesterfield A (ditto), Bromley H (ditto), Stockport A (ditto), Barnet H (who should be playing NLS football season but now starting to put a spanner in the works for those vying for a top 7 finish) and then away on the final day to Altrincham where we just know that we'll need a win to go up* and concede a 98th minute own goal to condemn us to the dreaded play-offs.

Anyways, too many permutations with 7 odd games to go.

I'll stick my neck out and go for a 3-0 home win tonight.

*One can but dream!

Feels like a must win for Notts. A draw not really good enough.

I wish I were that clever. No, I’m using the Adam Virgo school of thought that whoever is top of the league at any given point of the season are definitely going to win it.

As others have said, we need to win this one. Played really well on Saturday, but we’re currently reaping the reverse of the good luck we had earlier in the year when we were winning games despite playing horribly.

Constant injuries aren’t helping either, Alex Lacey and Jim O’Brien the latest to go down. Mark Ellis is probably going to have to play despite breaking his nose and needing 20 stitches from the challenge that got the Torquay lad sent off at the weekend (play acting according to a number of their fans, bafflingly).

God if you're this impatient after 2 seasons I'd hate to be around when you've been here as long as Wrexham. :woot:

Pre match nerves kicking in. We haven’t beat Woking at home since 2007. It’s a must win game for us. Just hope we can have a nice, convincing 2 or 3 nill win for a change rather than giving away our gamely clanger and making it nervy and hard work

Big County win, Torquay to lose. County fans to wet their knickers over the prospect of nicking top spot over the next 6 games only to be put back into our box by Halifax next saturday.
