Should win this on paper but it never works like that. 3 points here would be a great boost to our promotion push leading in to the Accrington game.

Saturday was the first time we've lost when I've predicted 8-0 Teyn, realistically 2-1 Cobblers. Hopefully our attackers can take advantage of their ropey defence.

Already have my ticket for this but I am currently suffering from some sort of death flu so hoping that disappears so I can attend.

Need to get back on the winning trail, with Accrington and Plymouth next up for us in the league 3 points are a must here. Going for a 3-1 win.

No-one expects us to get anything out of this, which might play in our favour, but it's hardly as though we're setting the world on fire and a draw would likely be acceptable to most of us. Even a narrow defeat wouldn't be the end of the world.

There'll be goals in this, I'm being mildly optimistic and going for a 2-2, but I'm sure the Teyn massive will be properly pissed off if they don't win this.

Given our record at York it's a nailed on home win. Our last victory there was when??? (I don't know)

We're absolutely certain to concede at least 2, but we're looking more like it going forward so you never know. A draw would be a good result.

In a completely selfish way in delighted it's been postponed. Suffering still with the flu so my ticket would of gone to waste. Instead I can make the rearranged fixture.

Want to avoid to much of a pile up though. Already have to go to Plymouth on a Tuesday because of the fa cup.

I'm hanging out my arse and wouldn't be able to listen and care with full intensity so I'm also glad it's been rearranged

Our coaches were an hour up the M1, a 10.30 inspection would have been fine for most Boxing Day games but we get the longest trip of all the FL teams when there are TEN teams within 100 miles of Northampton in League 2 !!

Sadly the days of local games on Boxing Day are long gone. The Old Bill put pay to that few years back. It's now just what the 'computer' throws your way

I think Exeter to Oxford is farther and Notts to Hartlepool and Stags to Morecambe are as equally as long as your trip.

The 'computer' has lumped the eight northern most sides together and arranged the games between them eight for this weekend's pair of fixtures.

Yes it seems like you're right about the eight northern most teams, but surely it would have been better for us to play Notts and Hartlepool play York

I've just caught up with the story of York donating all the match day food to a homeless project. Fair play that's an excellent gesture :thumbs:
