Think it's more down to who we've played rather than where we've played. Not much home advantage at the moment, and we've played more away games to date.

Our home form has been poor for a few seasons to be fair.

Does anyone seriously think that home form is relevant without fans
Does anyone fear away games with no home fans

It’s the fan’s fault for not turning up!

Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Just on this point, it is worth noting that as of tonight's table, we've played 8 of the top 10 but only 2 of the bottom 8. Of the other 3 sides we've played, Harrogate and Crawley were both in the top half when we played them whilst the game at Walsall was the opening game of the season.

None of that's an excuse for some of the heavy defeats we've had, the mistakes we've made or our poor home form, but it does put a slightly different complexion on where we find ourselves.

Our next two games look tough; away at Colchester (currently 12th) and at home to Newport (top), but then December's remaining games are against:

- Mansfield (23rd)
- Southend (bottom)
- Scunthorpe (19th)
- Bradford (21st)
- Morecambe (11th)
- Oldham (17th)

On current standings, that's a positional average of 19th over that six game run, by which time we'll very nearly be at the half way point of the season. That for me will be the time to really take stock of where we are, and whether there are grounds for optimism or genuine concern for the rest of the season.


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

I agree totally pooja, it's a point I've tried to make several times previously. We then have a free week at the beginning of january by which time we will hopefully have some new experienced faces coming in.

Well said Poojah, I’ve made similar points over on FB where the Praise and Grumble lot are totally losing it. Nobody seems to take form into account.......
