Lost again today against top of the table Wycombe Wanders 2 1
They are still in 19th position on 16 points, just one point above 3 teams on 15 points.  Bottom 2 teams are on 12 points.  Not looking good for them to stay up if they do not start winning games

No cup run for them this season either: maybe we will pass each other going in different directions at the end of May.

But when we play them next week it will be a cup game and they will
Be able to throw all their league form and fears aside for one week and go for it, with no real pressure.
That said from what I saw today we have enough to be comfortable in mid table in div 2 and with home advantage I really fancy us. But it will take another confident professional performance to do so.

I don't agree about them having no pressure next week. They're the big fish, the league club, playing away at ramshackle non leaguers Grimsby - they have everything to lose!

My point was when you are struggling in a relegation threatened season the cup games can be a welcome relief almost, yes they Should win and be expected to being the league club but I don't think their players will be as tense as if it was a crucial 6 pointer league game that's all.
This cup tie will not be their utmost priority in the grander scale of things and maybe we could capitalise on this?

Tbh I think you're both right !

It's hardly plus points to their manager (now under pressure or not ?) if they get turned over by non-league opposition.

However if this is true....

Quoted from BIGChris
Interesting that Appleton thinks it will give some of their fringe players an opportunity to impress!

then perhaps equally there's less pressure on them as well.
And perhaps more notably, less pressure on their manager if it all goes wrong !

Arguably, that's partly where Woods shot himself in the foot when deciding to field a full strength side v Chasetown.  
i.e. there were no fringe/reserve player excuses...

80s has beaten me to a Neil Woods reference - although I was going to use the words Bath and City

Yes indeed, another example of expectation for the big fish.
What a painful day that was !

Aagrh don't remind me about Chasetown. I still get flashbacks in my nightmares of 10 fat, middle aged blokes with their choppers out dangling them in the pond round the back of the burger bar!
