Time to do this properly for once like the good old 1FF days.

Altrincham v Maidenhead United
Boreham Wood v Dagenham & Redbridge
Bromley v Torquay United
Dover Athletic v Barnet
AFC Halifax Town v Weymouth
King's Lynn Town v Solihull Motors
Southend United v Chesterfield
Stockport County v Aldershot Town
Wealdstone v Eastleigh
Woking v Grimsby
Yeovil Town v Notts County

Altrincham v Maidenhead United
Devonshire has spent most of the campaign Devonshireing himself while Phil Parkinson continues to audition well to replace Phil Parkinson. This one, though, feels like a Covid Card fixture.

Boreham Wood v Dagenham & Redbridge
Worrying early signs that Boreham Wood will actually do something this season despite the loss of Ballon d'Or winner Kabongo 'Kabby' Tshimanga. Dagenham need to avoid a third consecutive defeat which will hinge on whether they've stopped complaining about Tuesday's referee.

Bromley v Torquay United
Bromley are yet to play away from home with this their 37th consecutive game of the season at Hayes Lane. Coincidentally, that is the same number of goals Torquay have conceded so far AND the average age of their strikers.

Dover Athletic v Barnet
Coming soon to the National League South. El Crapico on the South coast.

AFC Halifax Town v Weymouth
Match postponed after AFC Halifax Town completed football on Tuesday by beating beleaguered Notts County 3-2.

King's Lynn Town v Solihull Motors
Joe Sbarra will score his 15th goal of the season for Solihull Motors to inflict yet another 3-2 defeat on King's Lynn, their 12th so far.

Southend United v Chesterfield
You fear for Ron Martin. Danny Rowe to score a bicycle kick from 47 yards. Simeon Akinola is unavailable for Southend after re-signing for Lincoln City.

Stockport County v Aldershot Town
Rusky to be within 30 seconds of losing his job before yet another last-gasp Paddy Madden goal gives them a 2-1 win. Aldershot happy to be out of the National League's firing line until their next home game.

Wealdstone v Eastleigh
This will finish 2-2 just like every other fixture at Grosvenor Vale. The team kicking down the slope in the first-half will lead 2-0 at half-time. Wealdstone fans to say they played 'really well' yet again as they slide back into National League South.

Woking v Grimsby
The title decider which Grimsby will win 2-1 thanks to a late deflected goal from Lenell John-Waitrose. It's Grimsby's 49th victory over Physical Woking in their last 49 meetings. Paul Hurst pictured at full-time with arms aloft.

Yeovil Town v Notts County
A 90+24' winner off the shin of Joe Quigley leads to an 'angry', 'hurting', 'hugely disappointed' Ian Burchnall despite seeing his side's high press, with a double pivot in midfield, work perfectly and clock 92 final third entries against Yeovil's low block, or something. Ruben Rodrigues to do something shameful and not be sent off.

Wrexham
No fixture for the Unluckiest Team in World Football this week but it’s another sell-out at the Racecourse Ground. Paul Mullin will spend his Saturday towelling off Aldershot's pitch.

We don’t actually employ a high press, but the rest of it is probably fairly accurate. Would be happy with a point to stop the rot tbh!

Free hit for us, all the pressure on Stockport. I expect Rusk to be sacked if they don’t beat us.
Our record up there isn’t too bad over the last couple of years, think it was 0-0 last season and a 2-1 win the season before. However Stockport are a different gravy this season with all that money spent, so think we’ll lose 2-0.

Would be nice to set up a gap at the top with a draw in the game at Boreham Wood and us getting 3 points, just in time for the cup weekend.

We would’ve put 4 or 5 past Alty had it not been for the red so hopefully we can take that into this game with us.

Officially 1/4 of the way through the season for most of us on Saturday

We completed football on Tuesday everything else Is an anti climax from here. In all seriousness the biggest concern I have is getting the players back on an even keel. Weymouth play some good football so I've heard but I'd back us against them if we turn up with the right mindset.

See what happens. A boring 1-0 will do for me

You’ll stop the rot. We looked like a team that had never played together on Tuesday. Couldn’t pass the ball to each other or even control the ball in simple situations, despite our pitch looking like a carpet. Only reason we didn’t lose was because we were playing a team equally inept.

Dear Weymouth, you'll need this:

You might want to think about applying it before the game, in a damage limitation kinda way.....just saying....:eek:

Well Woking only won 4-1 at Notts County on 2nd Oct, so we should manage to beat them easily enough on Saturday at their gaff.

1-3 to Grimsby Town.

Paul Hurst pictured at full-time with arms aloft.

Not only that, on Tuesday he could be seen punching the air. I'm not sure this is Paul Hurst managing GTFC, it's some lookalike with a different personality. Last time he was either dour, going on about "us shape", or stressed, from the pressure of fans dipping into their pocket for £100k promotion fund. Culminating in the infamous ear cupping at the GTFC fans at Wembley.

Now he's either chilled, making little funny quips in interviews, and as of Tuesday, arms aloft and air punching. What next? I'm a bit worried that he's going to go all Neil Kinnock - Sheffield rally - well alraght, well alraght, well alraght...

Now we’ve a midfield that looks like it may actually be fit for purpose, a reasonably decent back four and with Andrews up top, I think we might be able to give Stockport a game. Our away form hasn’t been horrific either so fancy a hard fought draw.

A functioning midfield? that must be nice.

It remains to be seen if during tomorrow's home game our manager will tell a fan to "Shut your f*&%ing mouth" or if any of our players will offer some of our fans outside after the final whistle, as (allegedly) happened on Tuesday.

I was close to offering your players outside myself after they cost me £350 from a free bet on Tuesday

I had Maidenhead in that one in a double with Woking, which would have got me £80 off a fiver.

Carline out for 5 months. The injury situation is getting a bit silly now for us. Rowe fuming over the tackle in this morning's interview. I thought it was a red seeing it live, couldn't believe it wasn't even blown as a foul.

So we have Yeovil whose players and manager were rowing with the fans on Tuesday, versus Notts who had one of the worst nights in recent memory.

Promises to be a classic.
