yoDirty filthy Noblot!
You will be ok unless you have points deducted for whatever reasonWe're enjoying it while we can don't you worry, League football is not something I ever thought I'd see.
Plus it is a real privilege to be shown on the same list of fixtures as this historic Carlisle United side.
We’ve taken 1point of 6 from Stevenage this season. They battle hard, seem to have the knack of winning ugly and would expect them to stay up comfortably.
Can't comment on Barrow/Colchester, not seen either in action. Grimsby were poor against us, while both Southend and Scunthorpe fielded weak teams. Both appear to have picked up since, but if there's a lack of depth in their squads and they have to deploy similar line-ups, potential strugglers.Stevenage were the better side when we played them (a 2-0 win for us). Had nowt up front that day, but Norris is a pretty good player who will lead the line well enough for them to stay up. Think there’s realistically only five sides who could drop this year (Grimsby, Barrow, Sarfend, Stevenage and Colchester) and Stevenage are IMHO the best of them.
Finished 2-2, Perch with a great worked goal in the second half. Two good Colchester goals.
Other than a 15 minute spell at the end of the first half Mansfield generally edged it, We played okay, disappointed that we didn’t hold on but result probably about right.
Yeah this is our problem, form has definitely picked up last 2 games but we still found a way to lose them both and games are disappearing and the table is looking very nasty for us. It’s gonna need a good run of consecutive results to get safe and I don’t see where that good run is gonna come from. At least the improvements since Hurst arrived are big ones so I guess at least we have a chance, whereas with the team he inherited left as it was we would be 100% down.I can see Grimsby's form picking up under Hurst but time might be against them.
