Updated with this weeks results. Stil wide open, anyone from about 14th upwards could all arguably gate crash the playoffs. Curzon have recently had a decent run so we will have to be at our best on Saturday and hopefully claim three points. The Chester fixture is shaping up to be a big game the Saturday after

Looking at the previous 8 seasons in CN.

7th: Max 73 pts Min 63 pts Average 66.25 pts. Stockport finished 8th in 2017 on 73 pts
5th: Max 78 pts Min 69 pts Average 73.25 pts
3rd: Max 85 pts Min 72 pts Average 78.75 pts

I would say 15 points from our last 9 games will probably put us in a top 7 place

We could do with Hereford getting something out of Brackley. I really don't think BPA will get anything out of Spenny. 4th is the aim now. That would give us a real fighting chance of achieving the unthinkable.

4th would probably give us a home game v kiddy bpa /telford if one of them finish 7th followed by a trip to spenny /chorley/county/brackley  if we winithe first play off game.But lets just finish as high as possible and take it from there


Title: Re: Promotion Run In Thread
Post by: One Foot in the Grave on March 11, 2019, 03:44:19 PM
Hereford draw a lot of games - three in their current five game unbeaten run. The only team team to beat Brackley in the league since Christmas are Chorley. A draw would be good, but I suspect Brackley will sneak it.

I'd happily settle for Spennymoor seeing Bradford off.

Good result yesterday Kiddy losing. We can virtually knock them out of contention with a win next Saturday bearing in mind our far superior GD too. Very much beginning to get the sense Brackey will be very hard to beat in the play offs. As for the title think all of County痴 games will catch up with them now and I see Chorley comfortably crossing the line in first place.


Title: Re: Promotion Run In Thread
Post by: Mrs Warbouys on March 24, 2019, 11:23:54 AM
The pressure is very much on stockport now, they have an easier run in on paper, but one slip up and it痴 pretty much over. We need to be moving heaven and earth to try and secure third place. Brackley are in good form, as are bpa, but Spennymoors late wobble
Has left the door open for third place.

Perhaps you had also forgotten what happened at what was arguably their last 礎iggest game before Saturday, and their last game in the Conference? When a number of Stockport 素ans invaded the pitch at Kidderminster when they went 1 down, to attack both sets of players, and the ref had to take the players off the pitch for over half an hour.

I壇 take promotion out of regional football at all costs but achieving it via a dramatic win at Edgeley Park, and hoping they take it well, wouldn稚 be my first preference.

The ones that go week in, week out are a good bunch (as can be said for the majority of fanbases). The scrotes that turn up for the big cup games and playoffs, aren't.

One muppet even managed to get into the Fylde dressing room last weekend.

Title: Re: Promotion Run In Thread
Post by: CountyFan on March 27, 2019, 06:06:40 PM
Just to conform, 2 lads ran on the pitch in the Fylde game and while that's 2 too many it was nowhere near as bad as reported, after each Fylde goal their players celebrated by running towards the Cheadle End and goading us, 2 idiots ran and one squared up to a player, when the player also squared up the fan pushed him and 2 or 3 Fylde players then tried to wade in. As for the dressing room incident? there wasn't one, I know the chief steward personally and he said nobody got anywhere near the dressing room. Anyway good luck for the rest of the season, I hope we're both playing Macc next season.

It痴 that 10 day spell starting from next Saturday that will decide our season. Whilst the last 3 games against 2 almost certainly relegated sides and one against another with nothing to play for is great insurance for us if we need points to confirm play offs. Such a massive difference though in terms of finishing 3rd vs finishing 6/7 and the toughness through, so it痴 crucial we take as many points as possible from that period. Given we won 3/4 of the games against the same opponents earlier in the season we should feel confident.

I'm just happy to be in our position but looking ahead at our fixtures the telford brackley and chorley matches are all massive with (I would say) an outside potential to nick 3rd place...

Which would mean home advantage for the semi and a week off....saying that our away form has been dam good and momentum can be everything...and there is a week off before the final.

I think if we don't win the playoffs its been a great season and I'd be looking for a great season next season and being perhaps more ready for promotion..... but this side are winners and it could be written in the stars for us to win the final at edgeley park......

This might or might not be a relevant question, but does anyone know whether players on loan to the end of the season remain eligible in May? I ask this because of course our "regular season" finishes on April 27th. I'm assuming that they will be eligible for selection but would appreciate confirmation of that.

I agree but I expect Chorley to beat Bradford by more and the Goal difference is tight.
