  • we probaly need 4 points from the last 3 matches to stay up.
    Does any one know how many fans are going to carlisle

  • It could go either way. We could stay up losing every game (not that we’d ever want that scenario!).

    I’m still awaiting the games in hand Brighton and Northampton have to be played.

  • Hopefully we can atleast get a point this weekend – should help. Its going to be tight though, on paper Brighton have the easier run in.
