Two of the league’s in form teams meet tonight as Wrexham host in-form Yeovil. Wrexham will go above us with a win, whilst Yeovil will be just four points behind us if they take the points.

We were 18 points ahead of them a little over a month ago after we beat them at BP. Things can change quickly in football. Let’s hope for a positive change in Town’s fortunes over the coming weeks.

Reading the start of that 2nd paragraph was anxiety inducing. So I guess we are hoping for a Yeovil win then? We definitely need some tide turning performances in the next few weeks don't we?

We do. The stark reality is that winning the league from here is going to be frighteningly difficult, and for me the battle becomes more about taking the best play-off position we can (finishing in positions 2 & 3 would mean you only have to win two play-off matches to go up).

It’s just so very tight now, and that cushion we had over big spending sides like Wrexham and Stockport has evaporated as they’ve found their form just as we lost ours. Taking more points than the likes of Wrexham after January was always going to be a tall order with the money they’ll spend, so I felt we had to begin that period some way ahead of them which now looks doubtful.

That’s ignoring the current front runners Chesterfield and Boreham Wood.

I comfort myself with the thought that we are already doing better than I had expected, but if the league looked a bit of a soft touch in the early weeks of the season then reality has since set in.

We can still have a great season, and we can still go up, but there’s little room for error for anyone fighting it out for promotion - not just us.

Wrexham down to 10 men.


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

Though I think Cheltenham did it at the first time of asking (I might be wrong there) in 2016 in reality expecting us to win the league this season is probably unrealistic.

By definition when you get relegated from the EFL you’re in a mess on the pitch and probably off it, Town ticked both boxes.

Then you go into a leagues with a number of clubs who have been building teams and infrastructure over in some cases what can be many years to get promoted. Since we where last in this place it seems like the ones who have been building have much bigger budgets & resources to lean on.

Agreed. As many have said, most of us got a bit ahead of ourselves with the start we had, myself included. That is all but out the window now, and will count for nothing if we completely bin these next 5 games. Having said that, we are in a better position than I was realistically hoping for at this stage. Very interesting Christmas period incoming. I would love to see us win the league, just can't really see that happening. 2nd/3rd would be a real achievement in my eyes, but I would happily settle for any play-off place. There are so many teams going for it this year and before a ball was kicked I was more looking towards the consolidation route (for this season)

People will claim it’s having low expectations blah blah but to be honest, top 5 would be an achievement given the state of the squad and the club.

Anyone that assumed we’d bounce straight back must’ve been living in cloud cuckoo.

Going to be 8 points covering the top 10 tonight. Must be the strongest National League there has been?
