Won 8, drew 2.  That is about as good as it gets.  

We are still most likely heading for the top 2 in the play-offs. And in top form.

I fancy us to get to Wembley against any of the teams below us.  If Barnet miss out I also fancy us to beat them.They only seem to have a plan A.   If they miss out out on automatic promotion they may not recover in time.  In the same way that Wrexham did not when they got 99 points but finished second.

Playing Bristol Rovers at Wembley is different.  I am not confident of beating them, although we might in a one-off game on the day.  Assuming that they get to Wembley. They may also have a bad reaction if they have missed out on automatic promotion.  

On the plus side, we do have a fully-fit squad, a successful, settled team and can cover any injuries or suspensions. We should be confident after a long unbeaten run. We may be able to rest key players.

We should go further in the play-offs that the last 2 years. We are ready and must better prepared this year.

Not sure I share (what seems like) everybody's elses view that we will not beat Bristol Rovers should we meet them at Wembley.

We are perfectly capable of doing so. In the two games against them we have been far from our best and i think their main 'weakness' is a lack of pace which is hard to hide in the big open spaces of Wembley.

Not totally ruled out winning the league yet but if it is the play offs we look far stronger than the previous two attempts

I'd worry about playing Forest Green over 2 legs to be honest. They're in good form and Parkin has 15 goals in his last 16 games, and someone I think Pearson would struggle to dominate. The best result if we can't win the league would be for Brovers to win. Barnet finish 2nd so play Forest Green in the semis and us play Macclesfield.

Hopefully we go out for the next three games with the intention of posting some three or four goal victories to a) give us the best chance of sneaking the title and b) scaring the excrement out of any potential play off opponents.

If we played rovers at Wembley they'd be over 60000 there. This would give us a ££million  plus war chest for next season back in the league

Did you not see their game at home to Aldershot on the TV last week. They were awful

I agree with Chris, I watched the FGR game against Aldershot and I thought they looked mediocre at best! when Aldershot upped their game in the 2nd half FGR couldn't cope with it, the way to beat FGR is take it to em and don't give them any room to play (close them down on everything)

What will hopefully work in our favour in the playoffs is that we have a squad of players who have been in this posistion before (some with other teams)  and some with Town, I know the playoffs are a lottery but usually the better team win them .  having watched FGR, Bristol/Barnet, Macclesfield, Woking I feel we are a better football team than any of these teams.

My prediction is we will get FGR over the 2 legs and then Barnet at Wembley and league 2 next season!  

Grimsby and proud!

I thought we dealt with Parkin well at FGR, we put Toto on him rather than Pearson and it worked. Another positive that came out of yesterday was that Gowling looked a more than competent backup for Toto.

It doesn't matter who we play, they're one off games. Last season Halifax went into the play offs having won 9 of the last 11 and Cambridge went in having won about 2 of last 11 and Cmabridge won. 2 seasons ago we lost to Newport, we beat them 3-0 on the last day of the season.
