Personally, I feel our target should be to hit 50 points. If we do so, then history shows we wouldn't go down. There are only so many points to play for. If the three of us somehow managed to hit that target  (highly unlikely) then a couple of teams will have fallen into the trap. There are a bunch of teams that are clustered above us and a mini run of form would soon see a couple roped in.

Back to the target. 26 points from 18 games. 7/8 wins plus 3/4 draws and 6/7 defeats. A big ask but achievable given the propensity of strange results and stretched squads across the division.

I think our best bet is to play each game as it comes. Dont set targets. If we’re working on a target basis then number 1 has to be get out the bottom 2 and go from there.

I am working on the old adage about controlling the controllable. If we focus on the uncontrollable, Southend's and Barrow's results it will just create anxiety. We can only control our own form and if we even hit 48 points I highly doubt we would go down. I am sure some statto can back me up????

I think the Barrow game s a must win and the other game in hand, Tranmere I believe.. 8 games in March so we have to at least 6 (Tranmere & Barrow being 2 of them). Very tall order but it's doable.

It's doable, Morecambe finished 22nd with only 32 pts last season.

Our destiny in staying up is entirely in our hands, which is better than wanting help from other results.
