Other matches are starting to swing away from us with Woking and Solihull looking to win....but as I type this Torquay finally get the 3rd goal!
That obviously can't be helped Senior, as long as we did what we had to do, we live to fight another day!

On to Dover and another cup final....

Best performance I've seen in years! First home victory I've seen in 10 years. Amazing!

that is brilliant, compare that table to just before kick off and it looks superb!! shame both soliull and woking won from behind, then again york and guisely both lost from being ahead!! we can still reach 16th!!

Great win but unfortunately Solihull and Woking have won. Clearly their opponents Macclesfield and Chester have gifted them the points.

We do look to have a one game cup final at Dover to save ourselves. Win that and we will stay up as you would have to back us to win the last game.

Probably doesn't really matter about the other results - 53 points will be enough. All the other teams won't win the last two games.

With Solihull and Woking managing to turn around their matches, they look almost safe now being 4 points ahead of us with 6 available. North Ferriby are now gone to join Southport in the Conference North next season.

So it's down to one of four now realistically: Torquay, Braintree, York and Guiseley. Braintree on are on a poor run, as are Guiseley and are actually the two teams I'd like to see go down, both are small teams and the way we basically threw the match against Guiseley last season still rankles.

Braintree have a tough run in against Barrow and Aldershot and Guiseley have a distinctly easier Bromley and Solihull. York have Woking and Forest Green.

If we can get something out of Dover, there's an outside chance we can do this, although knowing United we'll beat Dover, lose to Ferriby and go down.

Don't quite know where you can have got this from. Both Macclesfield and Chester were winning. If they truly "gifted them the points" they wouldn't ever have been in front.

Maybe find another conspiracy theory.

We're where we are now because we've been one of the worst teams in the division all season. If we win the last two games and still go down, it's because of the preceding 43 games, not because other teams aren't trying, or whatever.

the fact that york play woking, and guiseley play solihull is our get out clause isnt it, none of them are safe despite what they did today, they displayed fighting qualities, but solihull especially have been on a desperate run, it'll go down to the wire a week on saturday, odd kick off times as well arent they?

great result but a little to late, dover away, can we get anything from this ? I would doubt it but as we are talking about Torquay then anything is possible.
I still think we will go down, I hope I'm wrong and yes I'm sure it will go down to the last game. very sad that it has come to this, but what ever happens, stay up or go down there has to be massive changes booth managerial and player wise, the club cannot go through another season like the last two.

Love your positivity.....

Dover will be tough, but I must say after watching a good performance at Lincoln and another one today by the sound of it, there's nothing to say we can't get a result there.
Also, good crowd today of 2,580 - well done to everyone there.
