I half worry about Warrington. They have blanked us twice and did us over in the cup - they've also kept pace with us while we've been winning. Shaw struggle away and Workington have again left it too late.
My greatest concern (more than any of our rivals), is the state of our pitch.

We struggled at their place, granted. But the game at home we barely got out of first gear. I would have fully expected to beat them comfortbaly had we drawn Ashton at home rather than Ebbsfleet. Only Hulme seemed to turn up that night.

The pitch is our biggest killer. With the points gap and games in hand, We could - if we can afford to cash flow wise - spread our games out till March and April with a few postponement.

You saying that we threw the replay because we didn't fancy a long trip to Ebbsfleet, or that PP couldn't motivate the team for a long trip to Ebbsfleet?

Whichever it doesn't bode well for the future, add to that we've lost our furthest two trips this season and drew the other (Workington, Shildon, Whitby)

Incidentally if we threw the game PP should be sacked

I'm saying I think certain players seemed more lethargic, less engaged and less on-point.

Whether that was after a heavy pitch 2 days earlier, or whether players didnt fancy playing ebbsfleet, only they can answer that.

15/16 1st darlington (104) 2nd blyth (99)

It's a total farce which is why more than half the original participants dropped out.

Factually incorrect. Only 30% dropped out.

98 out of 141 re-signed up. Meaning 200 unique people have played the game in total over the two seasons.

how do you work that out? check your maths lad

Still see Shaw Lane as the main rivals, if only because they'll be one point behind if they win their ever increasing games in hand and we've to play them twice. Warrington's progress might result in another blank Saturday for them adding to their fixture congestion as that was the game due to be played on FAT R3 day.
The League will probably send Shaw Lane to Stourbridge, who should  be at home to Workington. That game is actually scheduled a fortnight later.

The state of our pitch will be the biggest threat to our hopes, I think on football ability we are very good.
Agree absolutely.
By the time we play Warrington the pitch will have had 26 days to recover from the Witton game. I know the weather is crap but I think we're worrying a bit too much.

I must admit I'm quite impressed they manage to get all their games on - there wasn't even a doubt across their media yesterday. It's probably worth a few points a season to them too.

I assume this is more down to the local geography than anything in particular that we could be doing with our own pitch.

We just need to focus on what were doing in the league and grinding out the results until we get to where we want to be. Its in our own hands now because we have earnt that right thus far. Parky as he said needs to keep the team focused, which they currently are.

Good luck to Warrington in the trophy, they themselves have done very well thus far this season.

Just need to take each game at a time, all games are key, but the games against Shaw Lane and Warrington  and other teams around us are real "six pointers"

Come on you Robins
