How many points do we need?
How many will we realistically get?

Honestly, I think anything less than 4 could be game over. 6 points is definitely achievable (particularly with what looks like a 4 figure away crowd at Crawley). I've noticed Brown has said he wants to come out "all guns blazing" but also how he "loves a 1-0". So... I'm not really sure how that works? At least we've got some players back......

Either way I will be at both, so I fully expect 2 defeats  Cheesy

When was the last time we actually stuffed someone at home? I’m getting my tickets this afternoon and expect the full 6 points.

We’ll be in the mix come Monday.

The last convincing win I can think of was probably Charlton at home last season, 3-0.

I really hope we give it a fucking good go in both Easter games. Let’s give Morecambe a pasting, early goal(s) important and then eek out a scrappy 1-0 win at Crawley.

4 is absolute minimum for me.

I worry that if the gap is still 4 points (gd) with 6 to go it's game over

Morecambe will be hard to beat with only 1 defeat in the last 8 games and that was away at Accrington.

Creepy on the other hand have lost their last 2 home games and not won for 6 matches, they are also prepared to lose Kewell over the weekend to Charlton which may unsettle the ship.

We need 4 points from the next 2 games at least to stand any chance of making the playoffs.

If we are to get into the play offs I think we need 17 more points and so 6 over Easter would put us in with a great chance of achieving that, anything less and it would be very difficult.

I was thinking when was the last time we had nothing to play for at Easter. I reckon it would be 2007/8 under Malpas. Since then we have either been chasing promotion or the play offs or trying to avoid relegation!

Realistically, 15/16  at Easter we had 50 points, about 7 or 8 off the PO's with 6 or 7 to go.  I know mathematically there's still a chance but it just never happens that way.  We lost 6-0 at Scunny on the Monday.  Of the XI that day perhaps 4 or 5 were acceptable Div 3 standard players. Most now in the Confernce or below.

The team that day I think would stuggle in this league let alone Div 3.

Exeter 5/1 to beat Lincoln today. What's that all about? Very generous.
