Now we've beaten them twice and Argyle only drew there last week, I hope Macc make it to the end of the season.

Yes definitely goes without saying.....Plymouth are home to Macclesfield this Saturday so likely end result we lose 6 points and Plymouth 4. Crewe would also only lose 4 points, Cheltenham currently 3 points as they still have to play them at Macclesfield and Swindon also currently 3 points with their last game of the season away at Macclesfield.

Bottom line it looks as if it could be very bad news for City if Macclesfield fail to complete their season.....so fingers crossed.

With not many games to go you'd think that the League would allow Macclesfield (somehow) to complete their fixtures rather than fark up League 2 at this late stage

My God, we were awful last night. I watched the game on iFollow and our defending was terrible for all 3 goals. We actually started off well and were on top for the first 20 minutes but once that first goal went in it just seemed to deflate us.

Believe it or not that's the first time we have lost against Plymouth in the league since 1987, a game I was at when we lost 5-0. Could have been that last night really.

10 games left Walsall up next then two home games on the trot before Plymouth. In the same period Plymouth have Macclesfield at home then two away games. It really is anyone’s guess where the two teams will be in the league when we play each other. After that we are home to Bradford before what looks like being another huge game away to Cheltenham.

Having said that if we want to keep in with a realistic chance of automatic promotion we cannot afford to loose against either Plymouth or Cheltenham.

Still believe it will go to the wire but worrying that our clean sheets have dried up and we continue to look relatively impotent in front of goal.

One thing that seems fairly certain we can forget about thinking we can win anything on GD we are +12 whereas Swindon +25 Crewe +22 Plymouth +19 Cheltenham +25 Northampton +15 Port Vale +6 Colchester +12 Bradford +6.

Another 4-0 victory against Plymouth gives us a better goal difference than them. They're $hitting it to play us again after what happened last time and they know it.
