Apologies if this has already been mentioned...

As our last three away matches have been postponed it means our last four and our next two matches will all have been played at SJP. I was wondering if this is a record?

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
The Grecians played 5 games on the spin at SJP in 17 days at the end of 1973/74.
Postponed games in that era were usually tacked on towards the end of the season.
There were no games at SJP for 7 weeks from early January that season due to a waterlogged pitch which must have been bad to get called off back then.

Not sure whether we have played four away league matches in a fortnight before. Away games at Oldham on 13 Feb, then more trips for 16, 23 and 27 Feb (with a home game sandwiched in between on 20 Feb). We could do with Oldham being brought forward to 1pm.

If the game at Harrogate is postponed (their last two have been) then it will be 7 home games in a row! Deep joy and much travelling in February, March and April

Seems a shame we have so many home games now as they would be more profitable if and when attendances were allowed back in (even if it is just 2000).

I doubt if having 2,000 spectators much more than washes the club's face financially. Don't forget 1250 are ST holders who have already paid and the extra costs of stewards, security staff etc.
