Anyone know why this game’s kicking off at 2pm? Pretty annoying.

Anyway, hopefully we can bounce back from Saturday’s defeat but will need to be a whole lot better. Fingers crossed a few key players will be back starting and we can get a positive result.

Was impressed with Northampton earlier this season at SJP. They seem to be on good form too and I expect Curle will have them challenging next season.

1-1 draw is my prediction. Not really enough but would be a solid point.

Slightly earlier set off for me but at least I'll be back at a reasonable time.
Haven't been for a few years, I don't think our record there is great but we live in hope.
Hope we have some fit forwards for this one, we really do need all three points here

During the 2013/14 season when we played Coventry away and they were using the sixfields as their home I turned soccer Saturday on at 3pm to keep an eye on our score and had to do a double take as we were 0-3 up at half time. Had no idea we even kicked off at 2!

Gotta win this one. Lose this and our auto hopes are completely gone IMO. We have a nice run of games so it's definitely still possible atm. Lose this and the only acceptable outcome for the season is to smash MK Dons 4-0 at Wembley to go up.

0-3 to the Grecians.

We have been on a good run of form recently, firmly stuck in mid (ish) table so hopefully we go far more attacking than we did recently at home against Crawley.

We seem to be pretty difficult to beat now though, expecting a draw in all honesty.

No idea what team Curle will pick, I have never seen a manager make so many changes for each game.

Lets go with a fairly standard 1-1.

Boo.

Sounded like an awful first half and we were lucky to only be 1-0 down at HT.

Second half much better, brought on Holmes and Boateng which helped but we then concede a second. We make a game of it by pulling a goal back but rarely threaten after that so all in all a disappointing performance and a deserved win for Northampton.

Don’t know where the goals are going to come from tbh and I just can’t see us being good enough to go up. Need to win at Macc on Tuesday now and hopefully we can get some impetus back into our season.

Utter drivel from us. Couldn't pass for toffee in the first half. Not sure the second was much better either.
I know we have injuries but we looked shambolic today. A day completely wasted.

Incidentally just googled the game and check out the league one table from just five years ago. Scary how much can change for better or worse. I’m looking at you Orient, Wolves, Bristol City, Sheffield Utd.

Funny how none of the four of us who would ultimately go down were in the relegation zone on that day.

That's a bit spooky, I was posting on our forum about one of our fans running on the pitch and attacking the Orient keeper, and that link Dean posted is the very day that happened!

Was that an act of solidarity with Oxford for the time Orient fans ran onto the Kassam pitch to laugh right in he faces of crying Oxford children on the day Oxford were relegated?
