Having missed my first game of the season last weekend I hope to see us back to winning ways at a ground where we have done well at in recent seasons.

3 games to go. Promotion in our hands but cannot afford any more slip ups.

We got out of jail today but our promotion hopes stay alive.

Missed an excellent chance in first minute and we were the only team in it in first 20 minutes without creating any real clear cut chances. Went one down in 26 minutes and were awful for the next 50 minutes.
Ashfield missed a few good chances created as much by our shortcomings as anything they were doing. One particularly excellent save by out keeper Gareth Halford in the first half.
Tactics bewildering initially with only DD and Kieran up front on a big pitch but Alan Christie then pushed forward which made a difference. Unfortunately he took a bad one later in the 2nd half.
A penalty on 77 minutes converted coolly by Paul Burns changed the complexion of the game.
We scored our winner through Kieran McGurk with an absolute peach of a shot on 89 minutes. Cue celebrations!
2 very late red cards for Ashfield
4 minutes of injury time comfortably absorbed.
Promotion is won partially by winning games when not playing well.
2 games to go! Win those and we should go up but not mathematically certain at this point in time.
We will need to play a lot better to do that.
