No news on injuries from what I can see , in particular whether Nella has a hamstring injury or not.Will be a blow if he is out and also we need to be much tighter at the back as we were all over the place against Spenny in particular that 2nd goal.Wouldn’t mind Lawlor coming back alongside Lees and switching Barrow to LB.

Quite a decent unofficial preview this, although Gowling and Asante won't be so keen on it ....

Looks like it was his back not his hamstring, will have a fitness test.

I enjoyed reading the Blyth preview - fair and fraternal. Made me hope they can stay up as well. The bottom three look quite wobbly and the Kings Lynn result on Saturday can't have helped them. Whatever the result tonight I think both clubs could do it but what a strange league with such an ordinary team as Tamworth running away with it. :?

Just noticed that Moke is back from Ashton, obviously speculation about him being sold.

Or we need him back for the run in? Squad really stretched. Yet we still seem to have Windass and that guy whose name I can't even bother to try and spell.

Huge game tonight, I feel we must get something out of this as Blyth are nothing special, 3pts would be huge, up the Quakers!!

Thanks for posting this link.
It is a very entertaining read but I suspect that my Chester City supporting mate would be apoplectic if he saw the comment made about his beloved club.
Which, as luck would have it, he will because I have sent a link to him just to see the reaction.

1-0 Matty Cornish, missed the goal on NTV but apparently a cracking finish, looks to be a very good darlo following tonight behind the goal

1-0 up at HT, since we scored the goal blyth have been on top IMO, not created a lot but the main thing is we’re in front, big second half coming up.

Blyth playing good football but Matty Young is levels above this league and so assured. I'm not knocking Tommy Taylor who has been a good servant to this club but I do think Young has gained us extra points in his loan spell from making saves that TT might not have got to? Great distribution as well.

For Blyth Bodenham and MacGowan look like good players.

We could really do with a 2nd to snuff them out. They're low on confidence and I think they'll lose heart if we get that all important 2nd goal.

Agree we need a 2nd.Really don't know what Curry has done, hardly any co tribution so far.

We’ve played some really poor passes and wasted possession so I’m relieved to be ahead at half time. What a goal by Cornish by the way. Saw Hatfield and Salkeld having a bit of a discussion so at least they know that they can do better and what’s expected of them in the second half. Great following as usual, I think we can use that to our advantage.

I know Nelson hasn't scored very many this season but he's a far superior player to Curry and we look a lot more threatening with Nelson in the team. Cornish is doing very well again tonight but Salkeld has vanished after a good first 10 minutes.

Phew! When Cornish didn’t pull the trigger to make it 3-0 I was worried we might regret that, I especially felt it with the last minute goal line clearance!

Massive 3 points and we’re out of the relegation zone for the first time in what feels like years. Looked like Hatfield took a knock at the end hopefully he’s alright 🤞

Absolutely agree Ghost, Nelson for me every time.

Unbelievable effort and commitment again as they looked completely knackered for a lot of the game but dug in and Young again outstanding. Whoever cleared off the line in injury time May just have given us a chance. Who was it anyone?.

Main clearly would not have played if we had another forward. Sure he is, but we must try and get a forward in before Sat. Curry is not the answer.

It was Platt, according to DFR.

King's Lynn v Rushall and Southport v Blyth this Saturday, plus Farsley and Banbury have very tough away games.If we can get a win it could be massive.

Hoping we can get a couple of loans in if that’s possible as you can see some of the lads are playing with knocks/looking very tired towards the end of the match. Cliche but 7 cup finals left, I’ve got every belief we can do it which I didn’t dream of saying a few months ago. I think our biggest challenge will be keeping hold of Watson!

Said it before but we will stay up with room to spare.

Not that I have *any* interest in the teams around us because all we have to do is take care of our own business - but Blyth (who are shite) and Farsley could be dragged right in to it. There's always a couple of teams who drop like a stone at the end of the season. I do hope that Blyth stay up though.

I think the bottom 3 are gone, then the 4th spot is between Rushall, Blyth and Farsley.

King's Lynn, Southport and Darlo all are in form, none of the others are.

Also, it's looking like York are in big danger of dropping back down to this level.

I hope they don't come asking SW to go back.

IF we do stay up, would this beat Hodgy's season 03/04 in terms of where we were league-wise? Steve Watson has done wonders just to get us within touching distance of safety and makes you wonder what prevented us from employing him after AA because if we could of we may have even made the playoffs on this form!?!

That's how winning is done!"
