Just had a look at the 4 title contenders remaining fixtures. Looking at them it seems us and brizzell have the easiest run ins. I have included teams a) with a decent sniff of the play offs but also those scrapping against relegation are considered difficult games because as we know from our time in the championship, there are always crazy results at this time of year when the bottom teams produce unexpected wins or manage to scrape a draw against the big boys.
we have eastleigh, welling, gateshead, alfreton and southport
barnet have a shocker - eastleigh, halifax twice, welling, alfreton, nuneaton dartford, & gateshead
bristol rovers have the easiest of the lot just halifax, macc southport and alfreton
macclesfield have gateshead, nuneaton, bristol rovers, halifax, fgr & dartford

have to say on that basis it still looks like it's bristol's to lose

It will be interesting to see how Bristol react to the loss they suffered on Saturday and that teams are closing in on them, if we win Satuday and Bristol lose or draw then things will get really interesting, still think Bristol will just Nick it though unfortunately.


Grimsby and proud!

Is it our turn to do the "Mansfield" and plough upwards in the final third from a lower position.

Keeping the strikers fit is going to be a large part of our bid for auto promotion - hopefully warmer weather will keep the hamstrings looser for Ollie and John Paul. Either can play off L-J L or as a pair together.

I also think that Mackreth will be a form player from now to the season end - getting more confidence to put crosses in where it hurts !

Don't forget Scott Brown - we'll need him for the run in as well !

It wouldn't surprise me if the club threw some new supporter offers to pull higher crowds in, so the home atmosphere needs to be similar to that away from home !

The wonderful away fans - my grandsons are included - are doing the dress ups and creating a great atmosphere for the players to really enjoy playing in front of, so something needs to happen at home as home themes to keep that noisy atmosphere appearing at Blundell Park instead of the shouting moaners who seem to congregate in the Main stand at times, usually right next to the commentators as well.

They've only lost 2 in 30+ games, so i think it extremely unlikely they'll blow it now. with that sort of record they probably deserve to go up

The team with most points at the final whistle of the season deserves to go up, Bristol may not have lost that many but they have drawn a fair few, which has been our downfall so far in this division, we are now managing to avoid draws by and large but the home losses will almost certainly have done for us, Barnet still have the edge for me as they score goals and win so many friggin penalties..
certainly getting close though....
however the Championship table this week looks incredible !!

Rovers lost at home after 20 games unbeaten. A fine run.  However, once a team suffers the shock of a defeat after such a run, they often have a run of defeats.  Maybe as well, their form has dipped at a crucial time for the run-in.  Let us hope so.

if the form at the bottom of your post are correct - WWLLWWWLLWWWW

We are changing them draws into wins ! 9 wins out of 13 is not bad going - 27 points out of 39 = just over 2 points per game, promotion form

The one thing about Barnet is that if they loose Akinde for a few games, they are not the same team, & their penalty's would run dry.

If he plays for all their games they have a chance. If not......

Very true.

And look at Barnet. At one point they were a mile clear of the pack and could do no wrong. It looked like they would run away with it and were by far the best team in the division. Yet now I think they have lost 5 of their last 7 or 8 matches. All teams have a bad run sooner or later.

I think it's still possible for us.
