OF is right when he says that Play-Off contenders do play eachother on Saturday.

Histon vs. Kidderminster
Stevenage vs. Torquay

However, it might be over before Saturday because they have to go to Burton Albion tomorrow and win. Burton will be looking to clinch promotion to the Football League.

O*****'s form is very good while Burton's is ropey so it should be a good match.

So has Constable become a firm favourite....remember him scoring a good goal for us at Cirencester,while on trial a few years back.

I wish he'd stayed at Chippenham.

Burton only need to avoid defeat to get promoted. What price Pox to nick a 1-0 and spoil the party?

It's Histon, Torquay, Kiddy, Stevenage and us going for 3 playoff spots.

Saturday is big:

Histon v Kiddy
Stevenage v Torquay

Tues:

Barrow v Torquay (surely a Torquay win, playoffs secured for them)
Histon v Weymouth (Histon win, playoffs secured for them)
Stevenage v Kiddy

Sunday:

Us v Northwich
Crawley v Histon (both up there)
Kiddy v Kettering (both up there)
Torquay v Burton

We have a very slim chance. We are relying upon Kiddy to have an awful run-in, which isn't impossible as they have by far the hardest fixtures. And we need Stevenage to lose at home to Torquay.

Look on the bright side, if we make it we'll be playing derbies against you next season.

nah, you'd have to actually win the play-offs for that.

We have a very slim chance.

Judging by your other posts I'd say you were confident. In reality, all Kiddminster, Torquay and Histon have to do is win one of their games in hand. You also forgot to include Stevenage's last game vs. Mansfield - which could in theory spoil your excitement!

My feeling is you'll sneak into the Play-Offs and probably win (hoping this is my pessimism getting the better of me!). See you in the JPT.

I'm confident that we will win our remaining match, the rest is down to the other teams. If we make the playoffs we'll win them on current form.

Should hopefully be a little clearer after 4.45pm today.

I'd not been following this, but basically...Oxford making the play offs seems to rely on Kidderminster failing to beat any of Histon, Stevenage or Kettering?  Not the kindest of run ins for them, but you would probably put money on them getting at least one result.

Oxford to finish 7th or 8th, I would imagine.

Oxford can still sneak in - and it could happen. Many won't care but I'd like to see them remain in Non-League! Goal difference is minimal but their fate is out of their hands.

Oxford face the essentially doomed Northwich at home - that should be a comprehensive home win.

Torquay are at home to out-of-form Burton - Both need a draw so there is a chance that both could see out a bore draw to gain a play-off spot and automatic promotion respectively.

Kidderminster face Kettering at home - they need to win, Kettering have nothing to play for.

It'll be a nervous one for Oxford fans.

Blue Square Premier has been quite entertaining this season.

I actually forgot about Oxford for a bit this season, which worries me.  How long does it take to completely lose a rival?
