Looking at the full table on the BBC web site, it gives the last ten results of each team.

We have the joint best results over the last ten games, W6, D3, L1.

Macclesfield are the only team with the same record, whilst the team that's running away with the league have W6, D2, L2.

Looking at the posts on this site, you would think that we hadn.t won a game over this period, but in fact we are still gaining points, albeit slowly, over Barnet.

Time to get a grip fellas, it's not over yet by a long chalk, usually the team that wins this league goes on a run about this time.

Could that be us??

I think the winners will be the team that beats the other top teams, we have both Barnet & Macclesfield to play twice. Then we will have a better idea.

It's not impossible, but I think we throw away too many stupid points against shit opposition. I was hoping earlier in the season that we'd iron this out (and hopefully we will), but we've lost 4 more in the last 2 away games.

I still think we'll reach the playoffs fairly comfortably though, and after that it's 2 cup ties etc (not a lottery, that's nonsense)

We won't do it by being negative. The squad is good enough, proved it at Gateshead, but is the manager?

We have the direct opportunity to beat Barnet and Macclesfield twice.  This opportunity is also "high risk" as all 4 games should be a real challenge.  These games are more "a tennis match" than a "football match".  If don't get the points then our main rivals will.  (Unless the games are all draws).

You could just as easily say that the squad isn't good enough as was proved in the home game against Southport!

One swallow doesn't make a summer so taking one result in isolation doesn't really tell you anything.

As thing stands, I'd say the table currently gives a pretty good indication of what's what. We're one of the better teams in the division but our inconsistency at times means we've dropped points which would have taken us away from some of the others and closer to Barnet.

Plenty of time to sort things out yet. Just a pity that we've got so long to wait for a League game so no chance of adding any points for a couple of weeks.

Whilst I admire your optimism you are basically confirming that we have gained just 1 point on Barnet in the last 10 games.

We are 11 points behind with a game in hand so if we were fortunate to win that we would be 8 points behind so on current form we would catch them up after 80 games.

"usually the team that wins this league goes on a run about this time."

The team that wins this league has the most points at the end of the season.

Look win our game in hand and beat Barnet twice and we're 2 points behind them. Happy days if that's the case. Hope it is.

The point is that Barnet also drop points in games they should win, every team does, not just us.

When they do, their board goes into meltdown as well!

I still think that with the league being as tight as it is, it will be decided by the head to head between the top sides, & we are one of those sides.

It is still up to us to minimise the dropping of silly points, & beat the top teams.

Oh, & pray!!

I just hope grimsby don't turn out like arsenal. A very good team in their respective division but ultimately struggle in the games that really matter against other title challenging sides. We generally do quite well against the better teams but Barnet x 2, macc x2, Bristol rovers and Woking to play again to name just a few is quite scary really, I just cannot see us taking the required points needed to challenge for the title , just hope we secure enough for the playoffs, not pessimistic just realistic.
