Three games to go and still in the hunt for the play offs. Only 2 points adrift after today's win.
Its the hope that kills you.

I see Oldham v Salford was abandoned? Did Oldham get relegated out if the league today?

Disappointed today. Worked hard the 1st half then Rotherham showed why there battling for automatics and we’re not.
We need to beat them at home next week. In our last two games ive seen nothing to Suggest it won’t be tha same result when you visited but hopefully if at least a different scoreline!

Still it’s nor over until it’s over.

feel for Wimbledon today, so close.

It's the pitch invasion at Oldham. They were 2-1 down at home to Salford and facing relegation from the EFL. It's not clear if the game is suspended or was eventually abandoned. They have been protesting against their owners for a long time now.

Edit - just seen that the last 11minutes was played behind closed doors and it ended 2-1. Oldham are the first team to have played in the prem and to have lost their league status

I have no recollection of them in the premier league, none at all. I know they were but it's gone.

Conversely, if Luton win the play offs they will be the first team to play in the PL after having been relegated out of the league during the PL era.

I remember finding out Oxford had been relegated from FL. Horrible feeling, I was in a pub in OZ and I’m embarrassed to say I smashed my phone against the wall. Didn’t make me feel better and cost me in the end. I feel for the fans as the National League is so hard to get out of.

You were stuck there for a few years if I remember. I've a mate who is a Wrexham fan. She has had a similar experience - it's a tough league to get out of.

Interesting night tonight. If Sunderland win by a couple of goals they could still make the automatic places on Saturday. If they lose by a couple of goals they could slip out off the play off places altogether tonight on goal difference!

At the other end if Wednesday can put 16 past Fleetwood with no return we will sneak out of the relegation places.

A tough must win for Swindon tonight too.

We really need to win by 3 or 4 goals to be in with a shout of automatic because Rotherham are 10 goals ahead of us (although it’s them we play so every one of our goals swings the GD by 2) and MK Dons are 5 ahead.

a 4-0 win followed by a 1-0 win as long as the other 2 lose, and we are up. It’s highly unlikely but I can dream.

66/1 for a 4-0 win tonight on Skybet, jumped to 1250/1 when I added in Bailey Wright FGS (only put 50p on each bet).

I'm hoping FGR have been out on the lash since getting promotion on Saturday and won't be at the races tonight. We need all the help we can get with our awful home form. Mansfield, Exeter and Sutton all in action at the sharp end of league 2 tonight as well.
