It looks like the bottom 3 have too much to do to stay up.

Who will join them? I seriously thought it was going to be us, but our mini-revival seems to have lifted everybody at the club and we have to play a lot of the teams below us.

I suppose I'd like it to be Boreham Wood, because they seem to have upset a lot of people.

Any other candidates?

Guiseley have forest green , braintree , wrexham, tranmere, bromley , grimsby and dover as their next seven, i can see them getting sucked into the battle.

I hope Guiseley stay up, any side that we can do the double over has got to be needed to stay around. Couple that with the fact that they aren't a million miles away from us is also a bonus. I hope Borehamwood go down, esp after the naughty 40-50 lads that came up here looking for a ruck.

If 50 is the magic number, we can manage 12 from the last 10 games I'm sure :ohy: :pond:

With 9 of our last 14 away, that Conference North title next season is getting closer. Eat your hearts out suckers. :ds:

The way our injury situation has gone all season we must remain a strong candidate to go down, sad to say but true. I cant see where another 5 or 6 wins will come from at present but we are unpredictable and nowhere near as bad as some below us. Halifax will be OK so its really between us and boringwood I think for the last spot :bye:

When I went to Kidderminster last Saturday I chatted to lots of their fans and to a man they thought they had it in them to avoid relegation. In the first half they looked a very good team, but I think they've left themselves too much to do.

We both know where at least one of those wins is going to come from. :ffs:

Torquay have given themselves some hope. But need to win their next two IMO. (Away at Macclesfield and Kiddy at Home)

''Torquay have given themselves some hope'' ..... indeed we have.... but is it all too little, too late?

Macclesfield.... we've beaten them twice (1-0) this season ... can we make it a trio?
Kidderminster.... a 'must win' if ever there was one...

Then we have Braintree at home who are still looking at the play-offs. Next up is away to Aldershot... we never do well at Aldershot, so I'd take a draw. Then another '6 pointer' against Halifax. Southport visit Plainmoor on 19th March and hopefully by then they'll have taken their foot of the gas thinking they're safe. Then away to play-off hopefuls Dover. Eastleigh visit us on 28th March. Away to Gateshead follows.... we'll forget this one and let Bowman net against us yet again. Biggest gate of the season coming up on 9 April when Tranmere visit town. A short trip (for me) to Bromley on 23rd April where we can make some amends for the humiliation they piled on us way back when. Barrow make the short trip to the Riviera on the penultimate day of the season before the final game of the campaign (and possibly our last in the National League for a while) takes us up to the grim North to new boys Guiseley.

Can we do it? Heart says yes, head says no. There are some 'easy' (on paper) games for us in the run-in, but also some very tough ones against teams vying for those play-off spots.

My predictions (for what they're worth):

Macclesfield (A) - 1-1
Kidderminster (H) - 2-0
Braintree (H) - 1-1
Aldershot (A) - 0-2
Halifax (H) 1-0
Southport (H) - 1-1
Dover (A) - 0-2
Eastleigh (H) - 0-2
Gateshead (A) - 0-2
Transmere (H) - 1-1
Bromley (A) - 1-0
Barrow (H) - 2-0
Guiseley (A) - 1-1

Total points from remaining games = 16

Added to our current total of 26 = 42 (can't be arsed to google the previous relegation points totals, but I fear it will not be enough)

42 isn't enough, I think it was 45 last year but you normally want to aim for 50.

You've still got to play us at your place as well, probably get three points from that.

I wonder if there was anything written into Hursts agreement regarding not being allowed to play against you?
He's been terrific for us so far.

No chance for Kiddy, left themselves too much to do with a limited side. Torquay have to win their games in hand.

Welling are shite, I'll be delighted to see them go, for some inexplicable reason, they always seem to get the better of us.

While a recovery for them is unlikely I wouldn't put Kiddy at "no chance". They've got to play pretty much everyone around them. If they can get wins from most of those games they give themselves a chance. They got back in to it through surprise results, while Torquay have more to play they only got back in the mix with results in the 6 pointers - they haven't shown anything against other sides to say they will pick up results.

IMO if you count out any of the current bottom 3 you count them all out as games in hand don't count for too much near the foot of the table. I'm not ready to count any of them out yet.

All of the current bottom 3 will go down. If not, I will stick a tenner in the TFF coffers, can't say fairer than that.

Add Woking to the Welling Victims list. We've beaten them once in our last eight meetings. The only downside to them getting relegated is that it's not a million miles away, although not sure that really counts if we always struggle against them.

Really hoping it's Morning Wood for obvious reasons. They make Village Green look like Barcelona.

Like the tenner you put on the Glos clubs not both finishing in the top 2, which for some reason was never added to the bet list? #coughup

Most of the locals hop on the train to Arsenal/Spurs/Chelsea and even Watford....
