Well then.

With 6 games left, Town sit below the line in 19th with 47 points
We need 12 points (2 ppg) to reach the magic 59 point threshold.
Over the 40 games played, we're running at 1.18 ppg
Over the last ten games, we're running at 1.0 ppg

Our remaining games are: (current league position of opposition)

Sutton A (23rd)
Barrow A (5th)
Wimbledon H (8th)
Walsall A (11th)
Grimsby A (21st)
Morecambe H (10th)

Are we back in play? We're coming for you Ken!

Feel like i am being negative but can't see more than one win here. I got shot down last time and unfortunately appear to have been right so far

I think Grimsby and Sutton are two we should be looking to win. The third win does look quite a lot harder, perhaps Morecambe on the last day if they're not in the playoff hunt.

Not happening. Most teams aren't going to gift us two goals like today and be that hopeless at creating.

I worry about any game where the other team has something to play for if i am honest. If i am not mistaken the wins we have had under Gunning have came against teams with nothing to play for

Surely Sutton are going to aerially bombard us and now they are really looking at survival will be pretty motivated. I can’t see us winning a physical battle. Grimsby is away on a Saturday at 3pm so that’s impossible for us to win so that leaves Morecambe as a the only chance of another win IMO if it’s a dead rubber.

We’re nowhere near as good as the Beamish team. They had an FA Cup run, including a 7-0 win at Kettering. The current ensemble lost 7-4 at home to Aldershit…

It turns out we had not turned a corner, just played the only team in the football league shitter than us.

With 5  games left, Town sit below the line in 19th with 47 points (and goal difference above 20th)
We need 12 points (2.4 ppg) to reach the magic 59 point threshold.
Over the 41 games played, we're running at 1.15 ppg
Over the last ten games, we're running at 0.9 ppg

Our remaining games are: (current league position of opposition)

Barrow A (5th)
Wimbledon H (10th)
Walsall A (11th)
Grimsby A (21st)
Morecambe H (8th)

We're not just going to finish below the line, we're going to sail under it with all the ease of the all-Jamaica limbo champion.

That’ll well only get 3/4 more wins. I’ll wager you £50 for the charity of your choice we get more.

You better start counting your money, Aud.

Those are the two hardest as they will be trying - As we saw from todays game against Sutton.

The other three all in/within range of the playoffs, we have nobody to play who is on the beach.

Always think that those at the bottom scrap harder, while those chasing playoffs often freeze.

After today’s showing I can not see us winning another game this season unless the opposition gift us goals like Notts County.  Both FGR & Sutton are picking up more points than us and anyone who thinks we are safe and won’t get dragged into a relegation scrap are in for a shock. Rovers & the Pox thought they were too good to go down to NL and look what happened to them.

The only saving grace if we go down is Clem & his cronies might do one

We are safe and won’t get dragged into a relegation scrap.

That doesn't mean we aren't irredeemably shit. There are just too many teams too far behind us and too few games left. That first nine games saved us.
