Halifax 0 York 0.  HT

York 1 up

Halifax equaliser in the 93rd minute 😕

Full Time 1-1. Halifax now 7 points behind us with only two games in hand.

Call me superstitious, however I fear the last time we looked ahead like this was just before the Aldershot game.

We all know Dorking and Ebbsfleet are more than capable of turning us over if we're not switched on.

Given the finish line is in sight, I trust the lads to retain their focus - one game at a time!

Talking of run ins, I see Emley have won the NECL and are back up to level 4 again.
Most interesting is that one of the scorers in their championship winning game was a certain James Walshaw! He's got to be over 40 now surely? 🤔

Good spot, he's aparently 40 as of the 12th Feb this year.

He's still not the oldest ex player with Kevin Ellison scoring a brace over the weekend. Nicky Clee is also still knocking them in somehow

I think we're all getting a bit more confident of reaching the play offs, but here's the big question, can we secure a home game in the qualifiers? - ie finish fourth or fifth? I'm not sure. What do you lot think?

I would like to think 4th or 5th are achievable . Don't want Halifax and definitely not at the Shay with their pitch .If Aldershot lose at Gateshead on Tuesday we will finish in the top 7 .Think it might mean having to beat  Oxford at home to get a home tie .

My feeling is that we need two more wins to have a decent chance of 5th.

4 points will get us 5th and 3 points will get us 6th. No real chance of 4th.

I sincerely hope you're right, Bri, but I'm not sure personally.
Another pertinent question is, given Osborne is on nine bookings, what will we do in midfield if he gets a tenth?
And speaking of bookings, I don't suppose they reset to zero at the end of the main season? It would be nice if they did.

Premier league you have to reach 10 in 32 matches to get a ban. Is there a similar cut off for us?

I actually don't think the Gateshead v Aldershot game will have much bearing on us - Gateshead will finish above us, Aldershot below us.

Solihull is the big danger at the moment - two winnable home games left, which would push them to 76 - and thus meaning another slip up from us is costly.

Ebbsfleet getting something at their place tomorrow night will be of huge assistance, in two ways - hurting Solihull, and getting themselves safe before Saturday.

I see Gateshead beating Aldershot as critical to us simply because it rubber stamps our participation in the play offs. Our last two matches determine our position in the play off pecking order.
