Biggest game league position wise at the top is 2nd placed Bromley at improving (slightly) Solihull. Can't really get excited about a game involving Solihill rugby club, but can see tempers getting frayed in this one as Bromley won't back down against Solihulls tactics. 1-1 draw with 1+ red cards.

Notts County v Torquay should be a good game, both are scoring goals, but neither is too confident defending. A big test for the credentials of both teams. Torquay might nick this one.

Halifax v Boreham Wood could be another game thats harder than Boreham Woods league position suggests;- Their 2 main strikers have 18 goals between them and Halifax might need to score 3 to win here - BUT this is Boreham Wood's 2nd long trip in 4 days and that might ensure Fax get the 3 goals. 3-2 Halifax.

Barrow v Dover - I can't see Dover being as bad as they were at Aldershot, but they are still without Modeste who is on international duty. Barrow have won 7 in 7 and although ex-Barrow striker Inny Effiong will probably score one for Dover this could be 4-1 or 5-1 to Barrow who should make it 8 from 8.

At the bottom biggest game is AFC Fylde v Sutton, mainly because a point or more for Fylde and Wrexham are back in the relegation places as they continue their European misadventure... just can't see Sutton scoring a goal in this one. AFC Evil 2 Sutton 0

How much money should I put on 4-1 or 5-1 Barrow? You sound very confident
after 7 wins in 7 and playing the way we are and having dispatched good Bromley and Boreham Wood sides comfortably i'd say whatever you can afford to lose (you might not get the 1, lol)

We’ve got the (joint) second best defensive record in the league and have kept four straight clean sheets at home. Our defence is fine. If anything our only issue at the minute is that our impressive on paper attack isn’t scoring quite as many as it should be

Christ not only are we absolutely shite now but we're also getting called AFC Evil. You say such hurtful things chipmunx

As for our game, I do not see us winning and I'm amazed nothing has come out regarding our manager being sacked. I expected him to be gone by now

Hopefully we'll make it 9 wins in the last 10 games at home to Harrogate, we're on a roll and have the best striker in the league in Rhys Murphy so anything is possible.

Ah so four clean sheets at home you are due to concede one. I'm coming up and reckon it will be 2-2 draw. Plenty coming up for this so should be a decent atmosphere

Well this fixture is definitely in my BTTS, I am going for 2-1 Notts. Like you say we are due to concede. Quite like Torquay more so than Exeter or Plymouth don't know why though :lol: so keep an eye on their results.

Our defense is tightening up and the keeper has had a good few games recently but I expect Torquay to be more clinical in front of goal than our last few home games.

He always reckons we'll hammer everyone at home.

It'll be a lot closer than that. As long as we get the three points in front of what looks like a big crowd, I don't care.
Does Chipmunx not know that when things are running smoothly and we're all feeling confident, the team always find a way to mess it up?

I agree, it won't be easy. A big, expectant crowd can work both ways too.

I predicted that one of these two home games would be a draw, so I suspect this could be it.

I do - but someone is due a stuffing and i'd just love the look on his face if it actually comes in - although if he keeps his word and puts a £1 on each he will at least be in profit.... IF it comes in.

Bad time to be in the Tunnocks teacake shield. We could slip even further behind and whilst I have high hopes we will beat Chesterfield at home on the 15th, I can't see us getting anything against Daggers and Torquay following that unless Keates can work a miracle.

It’s going to be painful viewing on Saturday for sure. We really need to be winning our next three games (yourselves, Billericay in the cup and Gravesend at home) otherwise our managers position will be untenable. But I can’t see us producing the goods

Looking forward to the game tomorrow with Notts. Should see a decent game between two good sides. Unfortunately it has to be a day trip for me now as originally a weekend organised. Plenty already there for the weekend and expecting 500+

No idea what to expect from us, young coach Tony Sweeney is caretaker, could be any formation and team selection.

Would be happy with a point!

Feels like we're building a bit of momentum, this could go either way but I am hopeful for the win.
500 would be a good following , should !and for a bit of atnosphere.
