Didnt expect anything an incredible point considering the number and limitations of our squad but I suppose that's what you get on a top half budget!! Brave effort but not a catastrophe if we go down!! T-W-A-T
Bitter sweet though with other results that could have been even worse York the only ones to win in the bottom group and results today have actually dragged others into the mix though Maidstone continue to defy the odds. Shame we couldnt hang on but it was always going to be a struggle to survive after the squad and Nicholson were abandoned by Osborne and co.
Two from us Braintree, Woking and Solihull will go down with Southport and North Ferriby now. Forget Maidstone now. Too many games left to pick up a point or two. Guiseley and Sutton - can't see it. I had ruled out York before today and I think they'll ride it out now after Tuesday's blip.
Top half budget bullshit properly exposed with bench not full and Hancox having to come on today. Hope Sparkes, Chaney and Young ok for next week as we'll just have the Manager and Bateson's slightly built but keen young grandson on the bench. He's not ready yet, to my mind. Obviously no reserve 'keeper. Not that with a top half budget you would expect a reserve 'keeper, of course.
All in all, I was expecting nothing at Aldershot, so have to be slightly pleased with the point. Only slightly though. Obviously not now in our hands with other disappointing results (Edit: As it happens it is, as York still to play Woking), but we are fighting and fighting in spite of our dreadful owners and great credit to the lads for that. We fight on.
Lincoln are a class act watched them destroy a resilient D&R last, week we don't realistically stand a chance followed by Braintree and anything other than 3 points were as good as down. Think it will all more or less be decided at the weekend.
