Tbf Bristols best player , Sinclair, has been out for a few weeks and they have coped pretty well. They started badly and struggled in their fist 5/6 games iirc?

It has been said about us in the past that you will get found out if you can't score goals and 1-0 wins are too finely balanced.

We will see

However, how many players have you seen this season that you'd put into our side. One of Parkin or Blisset. Power, on his two performances against us. Bristol Rovers weren't that good, they just did what we do away, soak up pressure, break and score. Ajala and Young looked good for Torquay but they're 13th so they can't be that good.

I think the adoration of Bristol Rovers may be a bit overdone. Favourites now for top spot - but nothing that special.

Ever the optimist, I would hope if we play them again (play-offs) we might:
(a) set up differently, and
(b) play with a bit more intelligence, and

(c) take our chances and win!

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

I think Rovers look to have a lot more nouse than any of the other teams we've played this season. Very good at working the officials and with lots of clever nudges to put our players off balance both before and in the challenges themselves. Their hard-working style and strong defence allied to pace and one or two skilful players in attack makes them my favourites for the title. In the match at BP, Barnet looked a very one-dimensional team to me, very reliant on Akinde. On the other hand, Rovers had a few dangerous players who all caused us trouble.

That said, Rovers are relatively goal-shy in comparison to Barnet which is a risk as it isn't always easy to continue to nick 1-0 victories here and there.

Just a pity we haven't won or drawn one or two more games ourselves as we would then really be in the mix. In particular, I'm thinking about the defeats against Macclesfield and FGR over the past couple of months, games where we really ought to have had a draw at the very least. Just not quite consistent enough, unfortunately.

It would be nice if yesterday's performance could spark a run of form to really put the cat among the pigeons...

The roller coaster ride that is following Town, after a great win we have closed the gap and are within 6 points off top spot when we win our game in hand.  It is possible we can get more points from our games left to win the league, and although it is a big ask of the players they have it in them to do it.  

We go into the business end of the season with no one to fear, we go into the business end of the season treating every game as a cup final.

Legendary Town teams of the past were made famous by Grimsby grit, that dogged determination, never giving up and fighting for every blade of grass.  This current Town team have it, they need to believe this, especially with home games.

The fight is on!

Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

We are not out of it:

We've got a good set of fixtures to come. I suspect we need to win 11 out of remaining 12 to do it though and that will be tough.

We just need to do a Mansfield

Pity we couldn't scrape a draw with Brizzle which would have made 3 points difference to the gap. Talking to some Barnet fans on the tube, they don't believe they're good enough (agreed on yesterday's performance), and looking at other teams fixtures we seem to have the easiest run-in, so it's do-able but yesterday's Town team need to turn up every week.
