Mansfield one up against Lincoln. If they win, automatic promotion looks unlikely.

It finished one all, another good result which leaves us five points off third with a game in hand. I did not see the game but apparently both sides were impressive. However, Rovers are in contention on merit.

I watched Mansfield/Lincoln and what a great game it was. Both teams went for it good and proper but Imps were the more polished. It will take a monumental effort to overtake Stags, given our run of fixtures, and it'll be a shame if our defeat there when we weren't at our best is the determining factor.

I still think the likes of Lincoln, Bury and Mansfield are stronger than us. But we can compete in the play offs against the likes of Exeter, Colchester, MK dons, Carlisle etc.

Guess we’ll find out over the next month or so

I would say Lincoln and Bury are effectively promoted, but third place is still up for grabs.

Mansfield have more talent than we do, but they are hardly invincible. They have been very inconsistent in recent weeks, losing at Notts County and Pot Vale and drawing at Crawley, while we were on our winning run. If the recent form of the two clubs is repeated in the closing fixtures we will finish above them. Our form could tail off slightly and we would still have a chance of overtaking them.

The most talented squads don't always go up, as we know from our time in the NL. Organisation, team spirit, good management and luck also play a part, and we have a great opportunity.

Oldham had a good home win yesterday, so will be confident. However, their season is now dead. Let's hope we continue to show the same desire we have for the past two months and make it eight on the bounce.

Bury too are playing their game in hand on Tuesday. This means all of the top seven will have played 40 games and the table situation will be a little clearer.

Looking forward to Tuesday. My first away game since the dramatic win at Morecambe.

Expect the same line up apart from Harris in for McCullough. Just hope banks doesn’t lose his head and play the occasion like the home game when he was hopeless

I though first half we looked anxious at times and really struggled to get our passing game going but the goal changed the game, second half we played much better and thoroughly deserved the 3 points.

Oldham looked a strong side when we played them in the autumn but a lot has happened since then, with the Latics losing a couple of managers and some key players including Surridge. However, Wilde is now back in charge and they had a good win on Saturday so might be due an upturn in form. Baxter misses out through suspension and Callum Lang would appear to be their biggest threat.

Irrespective of who starts for Oldham, we are a better football team and if we match the performances of recent weeks we will win the game. It should be some occasion with 2,000 plus Rovers fans travelling; I can't remember that ever happening before for a standard midweek league match, even in our Championship days. I agree with Sparky that the performance of Banks will be key, and he needs to keep to the script and not get sidetracked by the home support.

A victory will see us overtake Mansfield in fourth place and move within two, possibly one, point of automatic promotion. Exciting times and hopefully this incredible run can continue.

It's going to be an interesting night with Bury also playing against Cambridge. If we win and Bury lose, we are one point behind them and only two points behind MK Dons in second!
