It doesn't put us in the top 7 put that doesn't matter IMO at this stage. We are certainly a very strong 8th! I think 75 points will do it, we just have to make sure we are not the one that misses out!
Overall, this season we have been very strong away and pretty average at home. Our next 4 games are all at home, all against teams, on paper, you would think we might well beat. Not a brave forecast, but pretty obvious these 4 games will define our season. If we can get 9 points we will be well on our way to that play off place. Lets hope on Tuesday we play as we did at Chesterfield, not as we did against Halifax.
What can I say about that performance? Can't remember the last time we came back from one down twice to win a game and Joey Jones run and strike was a sensational way to win the game. After that, Chesterfield just didn't look like coming back. Great away day, Chesterfield quoted 100 away fans in the 4319 crowd, and we certainly out-sang the home fans who were very quiet. Lovely new stadium with great views, good pubs nearby and friendly locals. What's not to like?
A fabulous win and a really good never say die performance. Particularly pleasing was the way the players adapted to different positions with Jones in the back three and Hare at left back. (Greener was feeling under the weather so dropped to the bench). Both were at times less effective than they are in their more natural positions. In particular, Hare seemed to struggle to get forward as much as he does down the right. But both played well and as the game wore on Jones was able to get further forward and score a cracker. Gobern and Hollands were really good. If only Danny had a little more pace he would be awesome. Supporters today were mostly fantastic - a brilliant noise. Just a shame about the two numpties - one who tried to invade the pitch and one who abused a passing female. Cut that out guys - we are better than that
I don't write on here much. But I gotta defend said "invader". He lost his footing and fell through a pathetic plastic link fence between two advert boards.
Hopfully the bloke abusing a passing female wasn't me telling Yatseys mrs and kids. That I love him nearly as much as they do
If it was an accident then my apologies but as from a distance he appeared to wrestle a steward first it did not look accidental. Shouting "Get your t$#@ out for the lads" is out of order whoever it was.
