Boreham Wood v Bromley
Chesterfield v Altrincham
Dagenham & Redbridge v Sutton United
King’s Lynn Town v Barnet
Maidenhead United v Aldershot Town
Solihull Moors v Torquay United
Stockport County v Notts County
Wealdstone v Eastleigh
Wrexham v Hartlepool United
Yeovil Town v Weymouth

It’s a toss up for game of the evening, with the battle of the County’s at Edgley Park and Hartlepool’s visit to CPD Hollywood looking very intriguing.

Sutton will look to avenge a very disappointing draw away at Dagenham. It’s never been an easy ground for us visit, and I wouldn’t want to predict an outcome. However with Torquay having a tough looking fixture at Solihull and with 4 of the other teams currently occupying playoff spots this may be an opportunity to claw closer to the top whilst creating more space immediately below us.

Our away form isn't good on paper but we keep having them called off so that doesn't help.

Wrexham beat us at home and it's just right and proper they do the brotherly thing and hand us the points tonight. Their time is next season. Shame no fans are in, we'd have taken a healthy number and the visit of Hartlepool naturally pulls the home crowds in at Wrexham.

I would take a point as long as can beat Barnet at home on Saturday. We need at least 4 points this week if we plan to keep pace with the top dogs.

Soup is correct, the brotherly thing to do would be to lay down arms and give us the result Wrexham got here.

Not particularly confident as despite not playing all that many away games, the ones we have we’ve mostly been pap, would also be very happy with a point.

Give us little chance of getting anything at home to Sutton, a point at a stretch.

Another tough one this week following on from games against the top 2 in the league we host Eastleigh who are top of the form table.

Hopefully Meekings and Langston can start, so Jerome can play left back, with maybe Cawley and Oluwo making a back 3/5.

Sit Phillips and Connor Smith in front of those with Mendy just behind a front two of Parrish and Rosco.

I think a formation like that will allow Mendy to do Mendy things, like get into goal scoring positions but also disrupt their play through midfield. 2 up top would give us more going forward and also mean we keep the ball better.

Be good to get something out of this game to help build the confidence.

If we play like we did on Saturday taking three points off us won't be difficult. We are so erratic at the moment no way of telling which version will turn up.

It's mostly since we switched to 532. We were looking good away with the 433.

Not looking forward to this one. 1-0 Stockport (Rooney).

If Dan Jarvis starts, then we will win, if he doesnt we will lose, seems to be the general way things are going post takeover

4-4. A feast of football, one for the purists.

Dan Jarvis and Jordan Davies are the only footballers we employ.

Big game for us tonight sandwiched between away trips to Notts and Stockport so hopefully we can continue the momentum from Sat and get 3 points. Home form is going to be key in the run in and we've been good under Rowe so far so fingers crossed that continues.

Think we will come out and have a go, even without Rowley, Whelan and Denton. Expect us to drop one of our defensive midfielders (Gunning maybe) and play someone with a bit more of an attacking mindset, maybe Mandeville or the kid from Villa (if he's any good, not featured at all yet strangely)

Is Lainton still out injured? If Dibble is in goal that is essentially a 2 goal headstart for Pools.

Agreed though, would happily roll over tonight. Next season is our time, going up this season is the last thing we want.

Realistically we need to win tonight to keep our season on track.
As posters have mentioned, without Jarvis we look devoid of ideas, but with him we can look a little lightweight. I'm going to predict a 1-1 draw

Without him we look lightweight. Horsfield puts on an invisibility cloak as soon as he steps on the field and Harris is a yellow card magnet who hasn't put in a clean tackle since 2016.

We don't have a decent alternative I accept that, just saying that we are missing a bit of bulk in the middle. Horsefield was awful on Saturday.

Us versus the Muff is always a huge game, I wonder if their manager has worked out that it's a local derby yet?

Is the

match stream any good?
Yes, before the last one it was absolutely dreadful. One camera that filmed from very far away and missed a load of the action when the sensors picked up a bright bib instead of the game, no replays, no pre match or half time stuff and you couldn't hear the co-commentator. We've now improved on all of that but I'm afraid the standard of commentary isn't the best. We won't have Bryn Law presenting the stream this time either as he's working for Leeds.

A couple of weeks ago this would have been a real contest,.. now we've had a load of injuries and a suspension to key players,... and the tyres have gone a bit flat, can we take a point now please ? We will still play with like 4 wingers though :2thumb:

If you come and have a go like playing 4 wingers might suggest you will I suspect there will be goals. We've been incredible under Rowe (8 wins, 3 draws + 1 loss) so a totally different side to the shame that turned up at tour place earlier in the season.
Looking forward too it, think it might be a good game.

Villa kid Clarke came on vs county at the weekend and I thought he looked quite tidy in possession to be fair, albeit we didn’t have much of the ball in those stages...

Won’t be an easy game by any means this, Alty are where they are by merit and they’ve just brought another highly rated player in from NLN so it’s important we don’t see this as a gimme’ with it being sandwiched between two such big away games...

Line up I’d go with is (3-5-2):

G.Smith (GK)
Evans Hollis Maguire
Carline Gunning Weston McCourt Whittle
Yussuf Asante

Prediction: Hard fought 2-1 win (Asante and Yussuf one each!)

It transpires that tonight's Yeovil v Weymouth game is the 250th between the sides. We're currently up by 6 wins.

Shots at Maidenhead tonight, FREE streaming, apparently, just hope it’s not free for experimental purposes . I’ve given up with predictions, as we are so unreliable,but we usually struggle against the more “pragmatic” teams. Fingers crossed.

It's most likely free because our payment portal has been a mess for a couple of months now and thus streaming it free is the only way they can guarantee people can watch it until they get that sorted

cant see any other thing than a loss. saturday after half an hour we lost our captain cameron with a hamstring injury and had a midfielder at left back. we were terrible second half defensive wise. asa hall could drop back as a centre half but whoever ends up playing we will have 12 injured for tonight.
