Two HUGE games in the league tomorrow that are worthy of their own thread.

Bromley v Wrexham
Gateshead v Solihull

Will be my fourth trip to Bromley tomorrow night, and we have yet to win there, although each game has been very entertaining at least.. Little bit of excitement entering this after two drab performances with the fact we have signed two forwards. Although knowing us we won't have any 'international' clearance. Typical that Bromley are flying (as per Dover) as we play them. I think a point will be decent enough to keep us plodding along.

Hopefully a Gateshead win in the other game to get a bit of a gap forming again between Top 3 and the rest (assuming we get something out of Bromley..)

Always look forward to the fixture vs Wrexham at ours. We’ve been spoilt in match quality and point accumulation...so far!!
Looks like Okoye is fine and will start which is the best news! He’s really made a difference at the back in recent weeks.

I would guess that the new signings will start tonight. Bevon looked worn out and he can't last 90 minutes or score anyway. Perhaps even a change to the formation.

YEAHHH LET'S BE HAVIN YAAA.

Said nobody before this fixture.

A rare occasion where I've not travelled to a game. We've never won a league game on plastic and never won at Bromley. If we win tonight, we will win the league.

New signing Oswell starts in place of Beavon while Stockton must settle for a place on the bench in place of Holroyd. Rekeil Pyke is back on the bench, so with Tollitt, Pyke and Stockton on the bench we should have some decent firepower going into the later stages if need be.

Personally would have dropped Rutherford for Tollitt. It seems daft having our most talented winger sat on the bench.

Sign a winger who can be the best in the league on his day and put him on the bench. Smart.

We always come from behind to win anyway......

If he's got a dodgy knee (ACL?) then the last thing he wants to be on is a plastic pitch.

We haven't started him in the last few games so it's not that...

I think he's only here for 1 league game after today, risk him.

If we fuck this I might not bother next season.

Unless we get relegated, fancy Stockport and Chester away again.

Terrible performance again. Didn't think it could get worse than Dover
Same again for second half. We created nothing. Our free fall after losing a manager looks like it may well happen for a second successive season, based on the last 3 games.

I tell you what would be funny/not funny...............if Solihull pip Salford to the title :dk:

Also I think Gateshead season is over, under a transfer embargo and have lost key players back to Sunderland.

Could be worse Wrexham, you could be us and not have finished in the top half of any league for 11 years.
