Scarborough Athletic (A) FA Cup - Should win but proper banana skin especially given their plastic pitch. Would take a draw.

Brighton U21’s (H) Pizza Cup - Don’t care. Just don’t get any injuries.

Tranmere (A) - Huge 6 pointer, if we win then we’re starting to pull away from the bottom 2, if we lose we’re back in the relegation zone. Not confident although Tranmere are pretty shite, so it is winnable.

Grimsby (H) - Another team that will have a new manager by then. In awful form but that doesn’t tend to last forever, need to make sure we aren’t the team to get them back on form. We usually beat them though so more confident with this one.

Walsall (A) - Another side not tearing up any trees, will have a few players facing their ex teams, Allen and Matt for them and Maddox, Deeney and Stevens for us.

Bradford (H) - Another team that are a bit shit and another team that are after a new manager so another chance for points. Unless they have the new manager bounce by then of course.

Overall it’s a decent looking month on paper, there are definitely points to be had but interestingly 3/4 of our league 2 opposition are currently managerless. Which we could be too if we don’t beat a couple of them.

That went well then.

Scraped a draw at Scarborough (at least we won the replay)
Lost on pens to Brighton but got injuries
Smashed 3-0 at Tranmere
Threw away a 2 goal lead at home to Grimsby
0-0 bore draw at Walsall
Smashed 3-0 at home by Bradford

Not the month we were hoping for tbh.

Derby (h) Fa Cup - DRAW but we will lose the replay

Newcastle (h) Efl Trophy - WIN were already out and couldn't care less, make as many changes as possible.

Notts County (h) DRAW I can see this being a high scoring entertaining game DRAW.

Morecambe (a) DRAW They've started pretty decent and it looks a tough place to go this season. I'd be happy with a point here.

Doncaster (h) WIN sort of game we should be winning if we're looking to be in with a shot of play offs.

Sutton (a) WIN Our away record has improved this season, especially as the struggling teams like Forest Green and Harrogate, so hopefully another win here.

8 out of 12 points and unbeaten in the league, looks abit ambitious, but every month so far we've done better than I'd expect so why not again.
Pretty much what I predicted other than we won the replay in the fa cup, and we beat Notts and drew with Sutton rather than the other way round. Morecambe was postponed. So a decent unbeaten month with fa cup progression. December looks a more kind month fixture wise, the only top half team we play is Barrow.

Interesting month.

Mansfield - Pig of a draw, would be nice to have another cup run but if we lose it wouldn't overly bother me.

Port Vale- Don't care, play the kids and take the fine. Good chance for our fringe players to get some game time.

I'd like to think we can win both home games, Harrogate should be a team we can beat away, Accrington would be a solid draw. Ten points from those four games would be superb.

Two cup wins and then 2 wins, a draw and a defeat in the league. Not bad but could and probably should have been better. We were rubbish against Accrington and in the second half against Harrogate- both times when teams try to stifle us rather than outplay us. We need to learn from that as that was mostly how teams matched up against us last season we should be better against that approach than we have been.

I got out of the FA Cup right, but 8 points better than my 2-6 prediction.

Mansfield (A) - FA Cup - I'd be happy with a draw and get them back at home (depending on who the 2nd round is) but not happy at the same time. Wouldn't be surprised whichever way it swings. Tough call.

Port Vale (H) - Tinpot Trophy - The like of MacFadzean and Waters can prop up in this meaningless game where both have qualified and not fussed if we lost 9-0. Cant be arsed with it.

Gillingham (H) - first league game for the new manager, Expected more from them this season based on the start of the year performances, but flattered to deceive? New manager bounce expected? Not too sure. We score plenty at home though so might be able to get all 3.

Accrington (A) - Half the ground has been given to us fans, so might be a home atmosphere, but we are really tight at the back when on the road (bar Stockport). Be happy with a point seeing as they are up there as well.

Morecambe (H) - I'd like to think we can stop their good form in quite convincing fashion, but you never know.

Harrogate (A) - Should be going full pelt for 3 points here especially with the quality of our squad and they are struggling.

All in all, i'd like to win the home games we have due to the amount of chances we get, and Accrington is the only sticky away tie we might fall away with nothing.

Mansfield - Won
Port Vale - Won
Gillingham - Won
Accrington - Lost
Morecambe - Won
Harrogate - Draw

Wasn't far off with my prediction, with Harrogate being the only surprise, considering we were 2-0 up.

our December league fixtures are slightly harder....
Gillingham (H), Swindon (A), Crewe (A), Stockport (H) and Accrington (H) and January starts with Wrexham (A)

Could be firmly on the radar after those games.

Pete Wild fist pumps all the way to League one.
