A massive month coming up for us in our fight against the dreaded drop with 8 games in the month.

Where do you think we'll pick up any points in this lot.

Tues 2nd - Leyton Orient - Home

Sat 6th - Forest Green Rovers - Home

Tues 9th - Carlisle United - Away

Sat 13th - Colchester United - Home

Wed 17th - Tranmere Rovers - Home

Sat 20th - Mansfield Town - Away

Tues 23rd - Barrow - Away

Sat 27th - Walsall - Home


Obviously the Colchester and Barrow games will be massive but we obviously need to pick up points in the games before then so that these games are still going to be important when they come round.

I honestly don't know what will happen to be fair. What's your assessment of the month coming up?

If we don't win tomorrow then I will be looking for the same as our Eurovision Song Contest entry in 2003.

On current form we're royally screwed looking at our fixtures through March.
Unless theres a sudden change in our fortunes I fear we could be on the cusp of relegation come the end of this month.

Or we could be like the 89/90 Buckley team to be promoted where we roared into March like lions (quote courtesy of Roly G I think) and won all 7 games

Gosh it looks bleak doesn't it, I think we need four wins from that sequence as an absolute minimum. I can't see it happening now to be honest, Tuesday is a must win for me.

Given that we need 8 wins in our remaining fixtures to stand any chance of staying up, I think we will need to win 4 of these 8 games.

I'd say most likely wins would be Orient, Barrow, Colchester and Wallsall.

I think we must win those as a minimum, anything over and above that would be a bonus.

I don’t see any games being harder or easier than another at this stage in the season. Teams on a bad run have got rid of their managers recently so there could be some changes in their performances.


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.

Only if we sign most of that squad as out of contract players, some would likely be fitter than most of our current squad.
