The weather here today is sunny and dry.Can't see us getting anything, despite anything being able to happen a la Southend’s and Stevenage's results last night.
What are the chances of this going ahead, temperatures in Nailsworth rarely getting a degree or two above freezing between now and the weekend?
Do any Mariners know if the game is likely to go ahead on Saturday ? I would imagine the close proximity of the sea has a luscious warming effect on the Blundell Park pitch.
Only just realised you're Frealaf.I would say its rare for us to have a game postponed due to the weather, but since we removed the mounds to apparently improve drainage and then furlough our groundsmen this season there is a possibility if the weather is bad.
As I'm in Cyprus with central heating on because its bloody cold at 19C and clear skies there is a possibility it could be off due to frozen pitch!
It offers us no comfort - we've lost three in four and seem a long way from being a cohesive unit. This game may as well be played on paper if only to avoid some injuries.Barrow make the trip south to Gloucestershire to play former regular non-league opponents Forest Green Rovers.
During those years there was only one season when both league games ended as draws. Barrow's last visit to the Shire in 2016 ended in a goalless draw.
Barrow's precarious position near base of table means they will be desperate to avoid a defeat. But this is a game where 2nd in table FGR will [on paper] expect a home win. But Barrow fans will rightly say that football is not played on paper.
Recent results are fairly similar for both clubs which must obviously offer Barrow a lot of comfort.
Having said all that I convinced the result will be a home win.

Not confident at all. Form has fallen off a cliff. Only positive for Saturday is that Labadie is back from suspension who has been badly missed. Will give an indication as to whether we can or can't pick up points on a decent pitch. May have to rely on points won away from home if we are to maintain a promotion challenge.Big game for us again. Was stunned Newport got beat by Southend after how awful they were against us so gives us some hope! Their form is worse than ours and 1 win in 10 so there is hope.
We’ve yet to beat them since they returned to the EFL though.
Hold a place in Vale history being the first opponents to play at the Wembley of the North in 1950 and a famous game in the 80s when Andy Jones rattled 5 in against his countrymen.
Hopefully Gibbons is back from illness after another Mills horror show at the weekend.
Maybe worth Swan getting a go after a promising cameo as well.
Need to be winning this after yesterday’s results really.
Anybody know if there is much snow down Colchester and what are the odds of the game vs Mansfield being on this Saturday.

No, I was being semi serious. We have a similar effect on the Wirral, with water on three sides.I cannot ever remember one of our games being off with a frozen pitch.
Can’t tell if the warming effect is a joke but the proximity to the sea does indeed give us an extra degree or two so it’s always rare to be cold enough to get decent snow yet it’s still fucking freezing all year round
Should be fine, chilly and sunny...probably windy too...typical conditions at TNL.The weather here today is sunny and dry.
Gloucestershire missed all that recent bad weather up north.
Long range local weather forecast for Saturday indicates game should go ahead.
