Hope its on , they lost 4-0 at home today so good time to play them and a win would almost guarantee safety , funny how things can change so quickly , all the results went our way , Solihull occupy 4th bottom that's all we need to worry about 3 more points clear of them if the gap is 11 points on Tuesday we can look forward to another season in the National League .

Only 18points off the playoffs!! Let’s just stay up first.  Six points from the next two games is attainable which would put us on 48 with 8 games left. I would then feel that we were as good as safe. Let’s hope they deliver.

Beat or draw with  Dagenham and beat Guiseley and we are safe imo. Then just pick up a point here or there from the remaining games

3 of the last 4 are cooked.

Guiseley have 10 games to go and play us, Torquay, Orient,Hartlepool, Solihull,Barrow and Wokinhg and have to get 25 more points to get to 50 points.

Torquay have 10 games to play and play Orient, Guiseley, Solihull, Chester, Woking, us and Hartlepool and need 23 points.

Chester have 10 games to play and play a lot more top 10 teams who are fighting for promotion and  need 20 points.

Solihull have 11 games to play Torquay, Hartlepool, Maidstone and Guiseley as well Gateshead next and need 16 points.

There are numerous 6 pointer games in that and probably a few draws.

Between us and those 4 teams are Barrow who need 14 points from 12 games, Hartlepool 12 points from 10 games and Maidstone who need 8 points from 10 games who also play each other.

Just above on 43 points are Woking on 43 points with only 9 games to go and Orient with 43 points from 10 games to go.

All teams named have negative goal difference.

My guestimate is that perhaps Solihull has the best chance to escape the bottom 4.

Incidentally Accrington who some on here compare our club to in terms of gates and size of club have today toppled Luton off the top of League Two. Something to aspire to?

We are probably a bigger club than Accrington. If we were in a similar position I think our attendances would be higher.  

What a fantastic season they are having and it's looking like League One next season for them.

Strange game, FCUM were never in it, couldn't do a thing right and no shots on goal,  wasn't until I was leaving the ground that I realised how much they must hate Salford, sort of performance you'd normally save for last game of the season . Also felt sorry for George Thompson, he wanted man of the match but was embarrassed to score three against his old team

Definitely. Clubs like Accrington and Rochdale show what is possible for a club our size (or smaller) without a multi millionaire owner. 

When Accrington went up in 2006 I was sure they'd be down again within a season or two.

Late sub when the game was long lost . Tried some decent long balls but FC had poor movement all afternoon, his short passing was good enough but he's looking a bit overweight . Picked up an early booking for a nasty late challenge and should have walked for an off the ball bit of afters

Aye, Accrington were said to have the smallest budget in the entire football league on goal rush this morning.

Can't say I like Burton being brought into the 'small club doing well with no money' debate. They had a lot of money to work with after taking United to a replay.

They did it through football though and not money thrown at it

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Burton, having lived very near there for 5/6 years. What they achieved getting into the Championship is nothing short of incredible. True, they got a load of money from the Man United cup tie all those years ago, but money doesn't mean you'll instantly get promoted. They still had to work hard and then spent a lot of time languishing at the bottom of L2 and narrowly avoiding relegation before things just clicked for them. They are still a relatively small club in a small-ish area, with quite a few 'big' clubs nearby with Derby, Nottingham Forest, County to a lesser extent, and Leicester, Birmingham, Stoke, Wolves, all around an hour away at most. If we can aim to emulate them and what they did football wise I think we'll do ok.

Getting money from lucrative cup ties and selling players is all part of football. Having someone who has endless wealth is very very different.

We’ve done really well since Heath left. As above I hope we don’t do a typical halifax and lose the next two games. 

Weve been playing well and confidence should be high. 

I remember when we went down last time people said we will be safe as we had the easiest running and look what happened. 

Guiseley and Solihull especially are two games we have to 100% win.

My view is that financially it is easier for small clubs to compete in the FL now than at anytime in last forty years. Since the explosion of Sky funding in last couple of seasons the % of income all clubs take from gate money and commercial activities has reduced. This means that although big clubs have bigger gates often their fixed expenses are also greater, a larger stadium and related match day costs. So that the income from gate receipts covers a similar % of total expenses. The Sky money is the same whether you are a big or small club, so that covers a bigger % of a small clubs total expenditure.

Let's not forget we had the trio of Nicky Wroe, Hamza Bencherif and Kingsley James 2 season ago. Had they had the heart of a Danny Clarke, Scott Garner and Nathan Hotte we would have stopped up.
