All depends which Forest Green turn up. A very capable side but never seem to put the same team out twice.
I don't think they are as strong as when we played them at their place, reports of fall outs between the manager and players has meant some of the 'fringe' players have been given the opportunity, Jake Cassidy's sending off for Guiseley on Saturday certainly helped them maintain their lead, and they were less than convincing against Lincoln.
I think they have resigned themselves to the play offs and finishing 3rd so may well be looking for a point at our place but after Saturday's result I am confident that we will score so it all depends on keeping a clean sheet.
I'd be very happy with a 1-0.

It also depends how we approach the game.At their place we played the first half as though a point would do and showed too much respect.The second half we took the game to them and their defence looked poor. With the same attitude in both halves we would have come away with all three points.
As for the now long standing rumours of something being amiss behind the scenes,there is no evidence for that given the number of times FGR have come up with late winners

We need to keep the momentum going and get after them and not sit back if we take the lead. A draw is probably not going to be good enough to go up automatically. C'mon ROVERS!

I'll go for a 2-0 win for us and away win for Chester of 1-0 tonight and hopefully that will be the score's.thumbs down. You never know these things do happen in football the next best thing would be us winning by bigger goal difference than Lincoln tonight hopefully by three goal's every little step counts.

I will maintain a 3 0 prediction as last time I predicted that we won 9 0

I am more concerned about Chester. Their form is so poor that the goal difference advantage Lincoln have could increase even if Tranmere win.

Same line-up as Saturday apart from Wallace in for Mekki on the bench.

Wallace standing off far too much, hasn't got the drive of Harris

So disappointing as it really looked on.But more disappointing is the loss of Harris.For me our season turned in the right direction when he regained a place in the side and the way we have been playing there was very reason to be optimistic even if it had to be through the play offs.
I very much doubt that a midfield of Wallace and Hughes can replicate the recent movement we have seen.

If it means a return to a less creative midfield then Cook has to start as the player most likely to get something from nothing.

If Maynard was fit than he could make a better replacement for Harris

Once Harris went off and Wallace came on we where doomed and was punished for missed chances .its the playoffs now .why do we lose our best players when we are doing well and need them. just on 7000 there tonight .what a let down

Wallace is Dog She*t!

If Harris is still out Friday, I'd prefer to play with wingers.

Sousa and Jennings out wide and I seriously think that Norwood should be benched.

How can Norwood start ahead of Cook? Seriously? How many times has he missed sitters this season?

Cook gets a sniff and it usually ends up in the net.

Wallace is an over paid luxury imo, he doesnt do enough and now that Maynard is fit, it's a no brainier.

We were effectively down to 10 men when Wallace come on. He doesn't have the legs anymore and I'd happily have Steve Jenno or Maynard ahead of him.

Only ourselves to blame, we created enough to have been comfortably in front before they scored.

Jay Harris was fouled after he had played the ball and the FGR players full weight came down on it looked like his knee. Just hope it isn't ligament damage.

FGR game plan as last season was to spoil berate the referee at every opportunity and how Bennett stayed on the pitch after the tackle on Wallace is beyond me.

IMO,a decent enough performance but, our failure to score from good chances proved costly.

After the Lord Mayor's Show......No to be fair it wasn't a bad performance more frustrating.Losing Harris was a major factor because Wallace just can't do the job.Also felt Cook should have come on earlier. Their centre backs and keeper won it for them. Roll on Friday..let's get this one out of the system.
