Big match for both teams, from our perspective if Nolan doesn't win this the knifes will certianly be drawn out as it will be no wins in three after some really poor performances from us in recent weeks - particularly at home.

We had our first choice wingers and first choice centre halfs missing over the Easter period, so to get Jobi McAnuff back in particular will be a very wecolme boost.

Don't rule York out winning this, we've been dreadful for a few weeks now, although its been mainly at home.

We had six players who would be in my starting line-up missing against Pools, plus another two playing out of position. It's no wonder we're struggling so much. Can't see it improving much on Saturday - York are going to have a last hoorah at some point, and it'll probably be against us.

You're going to win, we're one of the worst football teams in the football league, possibly ever, we're honestly abysmal and spineless.

One thing Nolan did inherit from Hendon - A very weak squad in regards to cover. Now we're basically at the end of the season, the likes of Turgott, Kashket, Dunne and to a lesser extent Fraser Shaw and Ollie Palmer haven't been good enough - although the last two have made good contributions here and there. Shaw is clearly gone by the end of the season, Nolan doesn't fancy him which is why JBW was brought in. A shame as there is something there I feel, he has shown signs of improvement as the season has gone on, but like alot of players he is very much a confidence player.

If you do win, I will laugh and be pleased for you, because our group of players need to realise that they've not been good enough for a long time now.

Plus it will make things interesting at the bottom.

As stated we are an awful gutless side that can't defend for toffee, but we can score goals. So I'd have thought Orient to win and both teams to score is pretty much nailed on.

That is the most depressing thing, we can score, we have decent attacking options, a good goalkeeper, but between the two there is a feckless horde of gutless leeches.

York tend to be better at home whilst the wheels have fallen off at Orient of late (until you play us). So yeah, home win

A win would give us a bit of hope, which under the circumstances would just be cruel.

Nothing I'd like better than to send Stevenage down, mind.

How has Galbraith been York fans?

I actually liked what I saw from him at ours last season (albeit not a huge amount of appearances), so would imagine he'd be ok in League Two?

Like him a lot personally, bit of pace and skill and will actually run at opposition defences. Not everyone is a fan as he's a bit lightweight and inconsistent, but he plays like he gives a shit, unlike some of our long-standing senior players.

This will be a tight game, Nolan usually sets us up away from home to be very tight and hard to break down, whilst coming on strong in the second half - This has earned us impressive 1-0 wins at Portsmouth, Oxford and 2-0 at Wycombe.

However, I was having this discussion with a few people last week - Does he do the same here? If we win the game, he can get away with it I'd say.........But its not the way you should be going into a crunch game against a side 2nd bottom. I wouldn't be suprised if the first half is dull and slow paced.

We were really poor over the Easter period, but we will at least have our 2 wingers back. Shaun Brisley looks set to miss out again, which will mean Nicky Hunt playing as a centre half alongside Ramage.

Nolan himself has been shit for weeks, but refuses to drop himself. Hopefully Lloyd James will at least play. I'd rather we went 4-4-2 and just played Nolan up front with Simpson, he can't do any worse than Gnanduillet or Palmer.

Yorks on loan Bradley Fewster looks a good prospect from Middlesborough and Lewis Alassandra isn't a bad addition either.

I wasn't too confident putting York in my bet to win, because a draw is also a very likely outcome here between two out of form sides. We won't win, which is going to really piss off alot of people and rightly so given both sides league positions.

We will lose.

I thought York today really put a shift in and could Have won. Orient really have the ref to thank for getting back in that game! Even orient fans have to agree,that referee was abysmal and by far the worst I have ever seen. Shocking on yorks behalf, but good for orient lot. 2 clear cut pens turned down and much more bizarre and confusing decisions.

Despite the refs helping hand orient could have won the game hands up similarly if our keeper hadn't been on top form. Fully deserved MOTM for York making 3-4 incredible saves. Both teams saw good attacking football but poor defensive displays (apart from Scott flinders). That said I believe that was our last shot at avoiding relegation and we are gone. We have blown our chances.

York were very unlucky with the refereeing decisions, should've had a penalty before half time, not sure on Boyles second yellow myself, will have to see it again.

We were shit in the first half and York deservedly lead, second half Flinders pulled off 4 good saves and a draw was probably about right, but as I originally said, York get a penalty right on half time and score it, they win the game, very hard done by. Having said that, no idea why Boyle stuck his hand up and gave us a penalty in the first half.

WTF was Boyle doing?

Absolutely awful refereeing performance ruined the game, but I'd have said a draw was a fair result given that Orient were shite in the first half and we were shite in the second.

You'd normally say that was a decent result but we need wins not hard luck stories. Down.

Can't comment on the two earlier penalties Twattle denied York, but I've no idea what MacNamara is whinging about with the red card. Clear dive.
