Our final stand in the Football League as we travel to Bristol (a happy hunting ground for us in the recent past), and with back-to-back wins leading up to the game, could we spoil the party? ;)

I actually think Rovers will get promoted tomorrow afternoon. Fancy Accrington to win and I think Wycombe will pull off a 1-0 job on Oxford, allowing Rovers to pave the way for a return to L1. Just make sure you beat us :D

'Tis true, back in the day you lot used to beat us all the time. Hopefully this team is a bit better than the old one, but you lot have hit a bit of form now the pressure is off. Won't be an easy game.

Nice of you to say, I think we'll need an early goal and something to go our way in the first half (i.e. a Stevenage/Wycombe goal, or keeping Accy/Oxford out etc.) for things to get interesting. Not expecting anything at all though, at least this is far less pressure than the last two final days have been.

Shame Daggers have gone, was always a ground (like Wimbledon, which I will do if it doesn't go our way tomorrow) that I've wanted to do but never got round to it. Still is a good manager though, and I fancy you to be more competitive than York next year - although I hope they return quickly too.

What the gas would give for a repeat of last season`s scoreline on the final day. The only difference. They get promoted and the opposition get relegated, eh?

Would be stupid to look past Dagenham. Last year we were very professional on the last game with a big win, but didn't get promoted, two seasons ago relegated on the last game. Anything can happen. Only well I'll be fully gutted is if the other two slip up but so do we.

What would you do if Curo scored a last minute winner/equaliser to deny promotion, if it is in your hands?

I'd take a 1-0'er to be honest if it meant us going up, was a like kicking a man whilst he was down with you lot last year. Fans still made a great effort to get behind their team though.

This is almost guaranteed to happen if it is in our hands at any point.

All Ticket so I don't think you'll get many :) We'd sold 200 as of Tuesday so I imagine we'll be close to filling the allocation. Could this be a record attendance for you (in the league, at least)?

For the absolute years and years that our fans have called to have him back, I can almost guarantee this to happen.

If you mean at the Mem -- I believe we have had 11 + previously. In regards to Eastville I have been in many 20/25 thousand crowds for league games over the years. And a few 30 + crowds for cup games. So no don't think it will be a record.

I'd be more nervous about this if I thought there was any chance of Oxford or Stanley slipping up. Unfortunately I don't.

Wycombe haven't won in 7 games and are 4th bottom of the current form table and Stanley have the 4th best home record in the league compared to Stevenage the 6th worst away. It would have to be quite a balls-up for either to drop points, particularly as their opposition will probably be playing in flip flops.

The league table might suggest otherwise but it could be argued we have the toughest game given Daggers recent results. 2 impressive wins and 6 goals scored suggests this is going to be anything but a pushover.

I think the only way I leave disappointed tomorrow is if a miracle happens and Ox or Stanley fail to win but we don't get the 3 points to take advantage. That would feel a bit like Dover last year when we had the chance to leapfrog Barnet but let in a late equaliser.

If Bristol City fans want to turn up tomorrow that just shows had sad and pathetic they really are! If roles were reversed I would not want to see them celebrating promotion or getting in to the play-offs. Either way we will be celebrating tomorrow. UTG and good look next season Daggers, we enjoyed the ride last year and paid off.

We best go up tomorrow. I'm stranded in London as a woman has been hit by a train so all trains have been cancelled so I'm taking the most bizarre routes just to stay at a friends for the night. Nightmare

If they go up - none. However, if they don't win and either Oxford or Accrington fail to win, the full 400 will be shitheads.
How about you fuck off to the championship forum and mind the gap that is going to get even closer?...

Ahahaha! Yep, that sounds like Gas logic to me! :D

Dagenham, I always thought you were a lovely club. In fact, I was happy when you beat us to that Conference title. Because you're so lovely. How about it, eh.

Had either been on the bevvies or a bit nervous I think! I quite like having the City fans contribute, it shows you all still care

Not feeling too bad today, think the only way I'll be disappointed is if the others slip up and we manage to bottle it. Other than that, very proud of this side given where we were 18 months ago. If it doesn't happen today, we'll be ready for the play-offs.
