Wirral rubbish shouts Adkins as beach boys lose to DC's Super U's 12:10 - Apr 1 with 2250 viewsdurham_exile

A good Easter can become a magnificent one with three points at Prenton Park today. DC takes his resurgent U’s to the Wirral to do battle with Nigel Adkins’ team fresh from their defeat at the Bantams on Good Friday.

The U’s by contrast having taken a vital point against the Stags, saw off the Exiles with a late Jay Mingi winner at the JCS.

It was a deserved win against another team faltering to get into the Play Offs. Today will be a tough ask even though Tranmere are already on the beach in Fuerteventura.

They have a decent record at home but DC has got the U’s playing some resilient football and they can see the finishing line of survival getting closer all the time. Chuck Norris will be keen to score today providing enough red meat has been thrown his way.

Grimsby 39 39 -18
COL U 38 37 -18
Sutton 41 36 -25
FGR 40 33 -30

Sutton who looked doomed have revived, but still look favourites to join FGR. Grimsby are dropping like a stone but have a reasonable run in and of course still have to go to the Fortress JCS! It is going to be tight.

Weather today on the Wirral 9 degrees Celsius light rain but still conditions with a light breeze.

I would like to see the following line up today:

Goodman

Mingi Hall Dallison Iandolo

Smith Read McGeehan

Fevrier Tovide Anderson

Subs
Hornby Chilvers Kells Hopper Wilkinson Jay Ihionvien

DC has already said that he will be using his squad and so expect impact players to be used second half – Ihionvien, Chilvers, Kells and Hopper.

The U’s to prevail 2-0 which will set us up nicely for Parky’s boys next weekend. We will probably only need 7 points from 7 games after a win on the Wirral today.

Safe journey to the travelling faithful. I am watching on iFollow today. My excuse is the Bank Holiday Easter Monday traffic on the M6.

Enjoy the game.

Up the U’s

Well they've picked up an undeserved point and denied The Mariners a very important victory.

Yes conceded a 93rd minute penalty.

Grimsby still in the relegation dogfight as a result.

Very important that we win at least 2 of our games in hand.

So long as we don't get thrashed by Wrexham to preserve our gd and get results from our games in hand.
Worry is GGzr and Sutton scoring plenty of goals which is eating away at our gd advantage.
This could end up being settled I the last minutes of the final games.

Whilst the other games had disappointing results this was a good Easter for us and we should be buoyed by it. Just a few weeks ago we would have viewed the thought of 4 points as a dream.

Agree fully Witham.
The patient has been long time sick. Recovery is happening, perhaps quicker than I thought it might and we may well still escape the drop. It will feel like promotion if we do.
I'm convinced we'll beat Stockport!!

We definitely need to be pro active in attacking. We can’t just keep drawing. We need to put 2/3 wins together now … not loose the next 2/3 I’d rather win 1 loose 1 that draw 2 lose 1…. It seems the set up is not to loose. This is ok at the start of the season but with limited time now it’s we can’t afford not to win.

When I heard a comment in the crowd “Crewe 0 -3 Forest Green”, I thought it was an April Fool joke. We got exactly what we deserved today. Yet again, gilt edged chances missed, and lost concentration resulting in us falling behind.

On Friday, I thought Akinde added much. Today, Hopper added little, whilst Brad and Fevrier did little more. The substitutions were critical. But the lack of urgency from Goodman was frustrating. He evidently didn’t realise that we had dropped into the relegation zone. Our two games in hand might quickly dissipate. I genuinely fear we could be playing Chelmsford City next season.

Getting difficult to work out how many points needed to escape the drop but suspect if we can keep our gd better than FGR & Sutton another 8 should see is home. This would mean Sutton needing 98 out of the last 4 games and FGR 101 out of last 5 games

With family over for their Easter Egg hunt and roast dinner, I couldn't give the game the attention it deserved. From what I did see, Tranmere's goal was basically taking candy from a baby - so easy for them. At that point, I feared a very poor result, but within a minute Ally Smith's equaliser was just sublime. Thereafter, it seemed a pretty even affair, and yes we had our chances to win, but so did they. On paper, 4pts out of six over Easter is a pretty good return, and I suspect most would have taken that if offered. We can't worry about results around us, we can only play the teams in front of us - trouble is, the next two are Wrexham and Stockport. However, we've shown we can match both of those away, so why not at home!

Incidentally, just seven seats left for next Saturday - what a day it promises to be!
