The scores are fairly fluid. If Salford lose tonight we confirm a play-off spot.

Exeter now losing. A defeat would effectively end their season, and they would probably roll over at Bolton on Saturday.

Cheltenham have equalised and are promoted as it stands.

Even if Exeter lose, they would have a slim chance of making the play-offs, so would have to hope they don't throw in the towel just yet.

True. However, they have been in poor form for weeks now and it is difficult to see them turning that round at Bolton.

Exeter now winning 3-2.

As it stands, if we avoid defeat on Saturday we qualify for the play offs.

Salford take the lead, could have done without that.

Henderson is on fire for them at the moment. I think they will be the team to beat in the play offs, assuming that is where we are heading.

Agreed. I really dislike Salford more than many other hobby clubs but they have the momentum.

Salford were very dull when we played them, I saw nothing exciting about them at all.

First we have to secure our own play-off spot. Wouldn't be very confident of beating Forest Green at the weekend, if we can get a draw that will do. Assuming no Rovers miracle and notlob go up, the teams I'd rather avoid in the play-offs are Morecambe and Salford.

I still have not given up on automatic promotion after tonight's results.

I just hope Keith does not set us up too negatively on Saturday, in the knowledge that a point secures the play offs. Fortune favours the brave.

I’d agree it’s worth gambling on a line-up for a win Saturday. Even if we ultimately lost, would be fairly confident of getting something at home to Colchester.

If the rumours were true, wonder if Paul Hurst regrets not taking the Rovers job, given he was unable to keep Grimsby up.

Could be an interesting game on Saturday as FGR will have to go for it

Barrow broadly dominated FGR tonight, particularly upfront through Quigley and Andrew. The scoreline flattering FGR who were a bit lucky only to lose 0-2. FGR, clearly missing Jamille Matt, offered very little in attack until the second half addition of substitute, ex-Tranmere loanee, Kane Wilson who provided a few decent crosses from the right and made some interesting runs into the Barrow box. I think we'll have to keep an eye on him if he plays Saturday.

Salford maybe in form but I fancy our chances against them and any team in the play offs I think we will come good.

I think it depends on either Vaughan being available or the team set up for Nugent’s game and Dave delivering on a regular basis. Play-offs are always a lottery.
