Would anyone else agree with me that the next four games are title defining?!

Tuesday - Dover Athletic Away.
Saturday - Forest Green Rovers Away.
Tuesday - AFC Telford United Home?
Saturday - Bristol Rovers Home.
Saturday - Barnet Away.

Could these four/potentially five games choose our season? Whether we are play off candidates or whether we are title contenders?

Season defining as in if we beat these then the team will have the belief of beating anyone.

Losing isn't the be all, end all. Losing to Barnet or Brizzle is only the same as a weekend we've lost and they've won.

Interestingly, the only teams left to play that have beaten us in the league this year are Aldershot and Southport, the last two fixtures.

I think realistically we may be looking at the play offs again. Season defining will probably be the annual foray into those play offs. Those games coming up we will probably win a couple lose a couple maybe a draw and that will tell us nothing. If we win them all happy days.

If we win our game in hand and beat Barnet then we can win this league with 2 better results than Barnet. Believe UTM

Minimum of 4 wins, with one of those against Barnet will see us right in the hunt. Tough ask but it's possible.

One game at a time and all that. We could win those 5 then only win 1 of the 5 after.

This comment puts pressure on players and fans  . One game at a time . Our opposition will be looking at us in the same light , eg  hard game coming up against a strong team .  We know what our own team are capable of , they just have to believe in themselves .

Quoted from Belfast Town
We need to win them all to be champions.

What he said times 100, There are no defining games EVERY game is paramount do our bit and we have done our best. We have the players and ability to do it we must believe and we could do it.
