With so many games postponed on Saturday the fixtures have gone a bit awry with the BBC offering one set of fixtures while ‘Football Web Pages’ offer a different set.

I’ve included all games from these two sites but suspect the betting odds are the best guide.

The Colchester v Mansfield match has been moved back 24 hours but was originally included in Saturday’s fixtures.

Highly doubt we will get a result here. 3-1 Salford.

Seems the chart is looking like the future.....it has got us down to 7th
Good spot Masi, Bolton are 13th.
While writing up these details I pondered over your remark on another thread [forget which one] where you offer the opinion that Bolton could achieve a place in the play-offs.
In truth I think you have a good point. Bolton are 7 pts adrift from play-offs with 19 games left to play. Eminently possible.
I don't think Bolton will achieve auto promotion but Wembley could have a full house if say Bolton v Tranmere were contesting that final promotion place.

Crawley have never played at Wembley...ever! One of two or three football league sides never to have done it.

I'd love to see it one day but the way we've played in the last couple of games it has more chance of being in the fa vase than a play off final.

Approaching the game with Stevenage with some trepidation. I can see them bullying us out of the points. I've said before that if you let us play we can look very good. Get in amongst us and we look awful. Everything I've heard about Stevenage is that they are a very limited side but work hard. Exactly the type of team to beat us.

Ktf. 3-1 to Crawley.

Lets hope it's not too cold, wet or foggy or Oldham won't want to play again....

As you say only 7 points from the play offs but i think we are really 10 with teams playing less games etc
We as you say have 19 games to reach that 7th position.
I am saying we have perhaps 60% chance of making it.
Tranmere i fear may already have been promoted by then alongside Salford.
I think Evatt is finally confident enough to leave his 523 formation on the backburner for the rest of the season.
I think we have the best squad in the league now and have competition in all positions and we will get to the play offs comfortably.
Sneaky feeling for Exeter on a balmy may bank holiday weekend in London

we should have beat Salford at home in December - but we always seam to lose by 2 goals when we play them away - any positive result would be a bonus, as would a game without any injuries.

Thank goodness we are out of that. The fixture pileup would be horrendous

It is a maximum of two matches left and we have played more League games than most, so not a big deal really.

Our run in that competition helped to lift confidence and improve our League form.

We have Mansfield Wed.....This game has already fallen foul of the weather twice....If it is again postponed
We should be able to claim three points and expenses.
Where do you draw the line with the fact that they put groundstaff on furlough.
False economy

As RLC says, it has been more of a positive than negative for Rovers. Particularly with defenders and youngsters, it's also helped fringe players get some match time, so if they are needed in the battle for promotion they're not totally rusty. It must have helped our finances a bit too.

hellogregory's should say Carlisle United (R) and Carver should have Carlisle United (C).

Evatt is brilliant, after the second postponement he said and I quote the rematch will be ‘on our terms’ now he’s moaning about it being on a Wednesday. I’ll guess he didn’t get it on his terms :lol:

He’s a right tit. was when he played for our non league neighbours and is as a manager.

Moaning that basically that the league back mansfield instead of bolton, brilliant lol.

So asking for it to being played on a tuesday but being over-ruled and it being played on a wednesday is playing on your terms, priceless!

Yet the irony is we wanted to move it to a wednesday the first time from the tuesday and he said no. Had he not threw his dolly out the pram back then it would have all been sorted.

It is definitely getting harder to think of a more dislikeable manager than Evatt at the moment.

As for our game tomorrow night - God only knows. If Clarke's going, hopefully Walsall will be in a bit of disarray.

Standby for us to have about 4 or 5 golden opportunities and miss all of them. I'll take a draw right now.
