What’s happened at Scarborough?

In their last ten games - no wins, 3 points, and they’ve scored 1 goal. :o
I don't know what's happened at Scarborough because their gobshite fans have gone quiet.

They were all over our Twitter feed giving it rock all, now...silence.

Me personally I would go full strength at Rushall and hopefully get the win which realistically barring a complete capitulation would see us pretty much safe. Then I'd be giving a day off to the likes of Barrow, Main, Cornish in the Chorley game.
Are you stupid?
The lads are being ran into the ground. Chorley are flying and will be our hardest game out of the last remaining fixtures - give a few of them a rest to recharge their batteries for the
Warrington game and beyond.
I agree that it would be a mistake to think about giving up on a game until we're safe. We're not there yet - I remember that Colchester game: 7000 attendance, a Gary McDonald penalty puts us ahead then Colchester turn us over. I'm sure those lads would want to play against one of the top teams - if any of them are struggling make a few substitutions. Watson has got the players wanting to play, that's why we're looking up.
It was Phil Bonnyman who scored from the spot that day

I certainly don’t think we’ll be looking to rotate/ rest players in the next few matches. We’re playing the same players every week, they’re in form, they are understand their roles and are continuing get results. No more Tuesday night games to go so we should be through the worst of it in terms of fatigue.

9 games in the last 30 days has been a relentless schedule. Only 6 in the next 30 days should be easier on their limbs.

16 games in 28 days (or 19 in 36 if you prefer) in 2015/16. Footballers today, I don't know, tsk tsk. Don't know they're born, etc etc.

I travelled up from London and back for that game on the train. Think I was about the only Darlington supporter on the train back, which had the Colchester team and hundreds of their supporters on, I think they got off at Peterborough. Not a great experience as they were a fairly nasty bunch in my carriage.
