I get Stockport are good, will probably win the league and should definitely be considered favourites vs us on Tuesday. But 6-1 for us to win, we're pretty decent aswell. That seems very long odds, especially considering our recent away form is half decent a draw at Tranmere and wins at Barrow and Mansfield this year.

As for the game, it's the start of a tricky little spell of games. I think it will be a tight game though, defensively were looking pretty solid, barring the game after we had lost O'Riordan and before Turns turned up where Matt Smith single handedly destroyed us, we look solid at the back, back to back clean sheets will give us plenty of confidence in trying to keep County out.

If I was to predict I will go with us picking up a very useful point on the road

Stockport 1-1 Crewe (Olaofe, Nevitt)

7/1 Harrogate too, they are immense away from home.

If we apply ourselves properly we should win, but for whatever reason I don't have a good feeling about it.

You just know Alexander is going to be right up for getting one over on us. TBH I'd take a draw but with Mansfield playing Harrogate and Stockport against Crewe a win would be epic as obviously someone is going to loseout there.

Sutton welcome beleaguered Wrexham to Gander Green Lane. The struggling reds haven’t won in 5, whilst we’re carrying an imperious 7 without a win into this.

Got to feel that Wrexham will heroically overcome their recent setbacks with a win here against the mighty Sutton

Our old friends from Swindon coming down to Priestfield is always a pleasant experience, and after the highs of Friday night I fully expect us to keep up our recent momentum.

1-1.

Can't see us winning. Exactly the sort of game we play poorly in away from home and get beat up from set plays. Big bunch of body-builders who will put it right on us and I doubt we have it in us to cope at the moment.

Our potato patch of a pitch could work in our favour against a more tippy tappy MK side, hopefully we take some confidence from yesterday but there’s no escaping the fact we’re a poor side. Still fancy MK to score given the players in their squad, 0-1.

Stockport County.
I think Crewe Alexandra have to win here to keep any title hopes they have alive. Lee Bell surely will have to take the shackles off.

2nd in the form table Newport 2/1 to win at home against 20th in the form table Notts, who have only won 3 times away from home this season.

MK Dons were the best side I've seen this season, albeit the reverse fixture was one of the worst City performances I've ever seen. We could've conceded 10 that night and it wouldn't have flattered them.

It was a good result yesterday but we're still crap and don't look like scoring a goal for the majority of the game.

Mad odds for Newport.
I'm really hoping we switch keepers and go to a back four, rest one of our wing backs and play an extra midfielder. It wouldn't be pretty but getting quietly beaten up each week isn't pretty either and Maynard may as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb because the calls for him to go are getting louder all the time.

Sadly we don’t have that physicality anymore, hence our position. Couple of big centre backs and maybe Harry Smith will start this one. Other than that we’re lightweight and way too nice. We’ll likely gift wrap you a couple of goals, 1 minimum, and you’ll leave with 1-3 points, most likely 3. We won’t score more than 1 and we’ll be lucky to get 1. Walsall must be some level of poo to have us take 4 points off them this season.

Accrington away for us. A difficult place to go. I'd take a point. We have 4 or 5 out injured but I believe they have quite a few out injured as well.

Excited to have an away game I can walk to - that's never happened for me before. Tough one though, Stockport at Gresty Road are the best opposing team I have seen this season. I'm gonna be optimistic and predict a 1-1 draw.

I think if we go for a 4 then it needs to be an extra defender, Nemane at RB was ok chasing the game on Friday but I don't think it's really any more defensively sound than the 3-5-2.

I'd hope our owners can see the context of who we've played and understand that not every manager can be as successful as Williams was. Winning the fans over is only going to happen with results and there appears to be some who have their minds made up already sadly, but it's nothing new with Notts.

Parkinson will set us up like we're playing prime Barcelona though and give you an unduly amount of respect. No offence....and no offence.

I have to work on Tuesday night so can't get to the Mansfield match. I don't think we will win but, ever the optimist I'll stick a £5er on Town at that price.

I would be shocked if we lost just because we hardly ever do, but those odds are tempting me considering your away form, and us not being particularly great at home recently. Generous odds imo.

We’ve had a series of poor results away from home - although quite a few we shouldn’t have lost at all. Always seem to play well, go ahead and then crumble.

Mmmmmm, crumble!

Like my fellow Bantams have pointed out, MK Dons the best team we've played this season. They should have probably scored seven or eight against us that night.

Would be happy with a point. Would be nice to grab a win though as we haven't had a win at VP since the 25th of November!

2-2.

Some of our fans are manic. They've completely glossed over our terrible away form under Williams, that we're playing better teams and that Palmer was the fulcrum of the team.
I'd play Macari and Cameron as straight out fullbacks for this although I don't know how Newport line up. They were probably the worst team I've seen this season but they've clearly turned a corner and it's going to be tough.

Last time Forest Green came here they were the best team in the league and we beat them 4-0.

This time they are the worst team in the league, so naturally we’ll lose this one.

Salford away, Matt Smith destroyed us at home, hopefully having Wood back fit he can basically take that game plan away from them, still think we will lose

It’ll no doubt be a very tough game against harrogate who are bang in form and their away form is only bettered by mansfield and stockport.

We’ve won our last 2 games without conceding but will need to be on it tuesday to get anything for sure.

Four defeats in a row, first time we haven't scored at home in over two years on saturday. We need a win.

Despite Suttons lowly position I'm not counting my chickens, I thought they looked a tough proposition when we played them at home.
