    Some tasty fixtures in there! Carlisle / MK Dons to draw and a good win home for us against Bury will be perfect. Can't see Yeovil turning over FGR but it's a local derby so who knows!

    Macclesfield, Yeovil and Notts County have all got games against sides in the top seven so fingers crossed no more points picked up for any of them. Port Vale and Morecambe have each other which isn’t bad for us either as at least one will drop points.

    We’re at home against Tranmere. Our home record is decent while they are drifting away from the play offs now. They have plenty to play for but no reason we shouldn’t beat them. Best case scenario we could be ten points clear of the drop at 5pm Saturday.

    Couple of big play offs games at either end of the country - Carlisle and Exeter.

    Pretty confident that we won't get anything from this weekend, just got to desperately hope that the others around us don't win.

    Before Christmas I had you down as the joint-worst side I'd see us play (with Morecambe), with the game at your place completely lacking any quality from either side. You've clearly improved and are in good form, with the games you have left you should be fine and hopefully safe with nothing to play for going into the last day!

    Away at Grimsby this week. Bar one shocking performance at home to them last season we have a decent record against them over the last few years.

    We're not playing great at the moment though, so would snap your hand off for a draw.

    Yes we were dreadful up to and including the MK Dons game on New Year’s Day, the Macclesfield game wasn’t a one off sadly! We aren’t exactly setting the world alight now but we have found a way to win games at home which should be enough to see us safe.

    In November I had the final game of the season at Macc down as judgement day and was planning to go which is unheard of for me at the moment.

    The fact a Russell Slade team took 4 points off you last season should have resulted in an instant relegation for you. ;)

    Glad to find a haven from the E Midlands/Lincoln bore-fest on the other place, even though it's a bit quiet.

    Looking forward to this afternoon's match (Tranmere at the Abbey), even though I'm hoping for a point/points rather than expecting. Disappointed that the Sumo god who is Steve McNulty will not be gracing the Abbey turf but it might make Jabo even more effective as the lynch pin to our attack that he's been in recent games. I agree with what Vanni has said in another place - the main difference is available players rather than Calderwood being a significantly better manager/coach than Joe Dunne. However he had a big part in getting those new faces in and he has certainly stiffened (or added some luck to) our defending.

    Hopefully we might see a bit more of Alex Jones (probably still from the bench). He looks to have more goals in him than any option we've had for some time. A result here, 4 points from the next 2 matches and 7 from the next 3 should be enough keep the momentum going - with 6 pointers at Yeovil next Saturday and the re-arranged trip to Cheltenham on Tuesday.

    Disappointed I can't make Cheltenham and the drag to Yeovil doesn't attract but I'm definitely up for Fish n Chips on Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes to get March underway.

    Can't have any complaints after losing to Notts County. We were very poor.

    Great result for Notts County earlier. All of a sudden the 2 who were doomed are looking the more likely to stay up

    Chairman I think - been there a while and they've been no progress.

    Lots of managers though.
