    Some interesting and crucial matches across the league tomorrow, the new playoff format keeps even midtable sides interested to the end.

    Aldershot vs Gateshead
    Gateshead played well for 50 minutes at Prenton Park but a very heavy fixture schedule will probably take its toll here.

    Bromley v Dagenham
    Two of the dark horses for the playoffs, fancy that the experience Dagenham have of these situations will come up trumps, ending Bromley’s season and leaving a slight hope for Daggers.

    Dover v Tranmere
    Probably the most important game in these fixtures. Dover need to put the pressure on Wrexham but are horribly out of form. Solid but unspectacular Rovers Win.

    Eastleigh v Ebbsfleet
    The vision to put a big dent in Ebbsfleets playoff push here with a score draw.

    Guiseley v Barrow
    Anti football match. Likely to have a red card. Expect a Barrow Win to relegate Guiseley.

    Hartlepool v Orient
    Former league club clash, but probably going to play out like the end of season friendly it is.

    Maidenhead v Sutton
    Sutton bang out of form at the worst possible time against a Maidenhead side that seem to have found their feet in the league. However, expect a mini resurgence from Sutton to solidify 3rd spot.

    We're only out of form in the last minute of away games!
    At home we've won our last 4 games - without conceding - can't see that happening tomorrow :)

    Anything but a Guiseley home win and it's the end of the road for us.

    C'mon Guiseley, remember how we saved your neck and sent the mighty FC Halifax down (banana)

    Our home form is abysmal, after losing to both Guiseley and Solihull I can see Bonne having a field day against Laing and Magnay.

    Come on now Orient, do us a solid, let's just play keepy uppies and one bounce in the centre circle and share the spoils, a win and we're safe, a point and we're practically there, but a defeat would be the Pools way as we are a CURSED club destined to have everything decided on the last game of every season from here until the end of time.

    Doubt it - no-one is sure if he's injured or there's a rumour he's not be turning up for training

    A win here will be massive and a must, I can't see us managing anything more than a draw at Aldershot and Bromley and it would probably end any dwindling Torquay hopes. Hard to judge Guiseley's form and performances as they've been out of the survival race for a while so I haven't been paying much attention. Show the commitment we did against Eastleigh and Ebbsfleet and we've got enough about us to grab the three points but it won't be comfortable.

    We've a fair few going, the club have subsidised our supporter's trust buses for tomorrow night and Aldershot on Saturday, with the former having two buses sold out, which seems the most interest there's been in an away game for a while. A decent effort by the club in trying to drum up as much support as we can for the run in, especially with the next three being away trips.

    We get one half decent performance every six weeks or so which last happened at Hartlepool so sadly we're due to lose every game now. At least that guarantees you three points next week.

    This will be a tight game. Fancy us to sneak it though.

    i wouldn't worry if i were you. we will probably spend the whole game more concerned with manmarking 5/6 of your superstars than trying to play to win

    I didn’t even realise we were playing. We’re basically on the beach now, so I reckon we’ll chuck in a 2-0 defeat to ensure Hartlepool stay up.

    Have noticed you do that pretty religiously. Macc exploited that to some extent and their centre back literally had free roam of the pitch because their players had split wide and your team did the same to man mark!

    Found out today that we're expecting about 1500 of you lot on the last day of the season! Be a great following if true.

    Tranmere to win, Aldershot and Sutton to lose would be best case scenario for us tomorrow night. also, Bromley / Daggers to eek a 0-0 bore draw.

    Gracias

    Stick an extra 0 on that and it’ll match your following to Chesterfield next season

    Your home form being Abysmal + Our Very Good away form this year = Home Win :cool1:

    I'm not sure how this will go, we've improved alot since January and its sending out good vibes for next year which is worrying. Having said that, as mentioned we've got nothing to play for so I don't know how our lot will react to a long midweek trip up to the North East for a nothing game for us.

    Gonna have to make the most of having MaCauley Bonne while we can, because if he is here next season I will be amazed.

    I can see Bromley beating us tomorrow. If we do win it'll be a smash and grab like we did at Wrexham. I think our squad is too small though and we'll probably be a bit leggy after the weekend. That tosser George Porter will probably score as well just to rub salt in the wounds.

    Was going to say we looked very leggy at Wrexham, majority of our players have played lots of games last few weeks with little rest. As this could be our last tiny sniff of play offs I would expect a youth team at Guiseley on Thursday if we get beat.

    I know they’ve been on sale a while now but not heard anyone mention any numbers, if we need something out of the game I can see a decent number going down but for a nothing game fancy dress day or not I’d be surprised to see 1500 there like.

    Almost a free shot for us tonight. A win guarantees us top 3 due to the Only 3 teams that can catch us all having games against each other Aldershot/Sutton/Ebbsfleet.

    Draws for Ebbsfleet/Aldershot & Sutton loss coupled with a Tranmere Win guarantee us top 2 tonight.

    It would be typical of this season if all our rivals for 7th screw up tonight, giving us false hope a and we then go on to lose at orient; dropping to 8th in table. We will then still take it to the last day and probably best fylde, but it won't matter as out of our hands.
