I think it would be foolish to write off Biggleswade at this stage. Its a 6 horse race for 3 spots.
A true outlaw finds the balance between the passion in his heart and the reason in his mind. The outcome is the balance of might and right.

Yes I agree. They have had their blip and are now serious contenders again and their run in is not too bad.

It will be close according to this final table prediction and I wouldn’t disagree.

Royston and Tamworth are currently top of the form league with 5 wins from last six games.

And not one team in the league has managed to go unbeaten in their last 5 games. With the exception of Bedworth & Halesowen anyone could beat anyone. It’s been a good last 48 hours for us regarding results. Our run in though is crap if you combine league and form tables we have most of who you wouldn’t want. We do though put on our best against the best, fun last few weeks to look forward to.

I think that's probably about right, think we'll just miss out. Been a great first season in Step 3 anyway.

I think the correct answer to this thread is ‘to avoid 1-1 draws against teams we should be beating’.

I refuse to give up on the playoffs until it is mathematically impossible, because I’ve seen enough football over the years to know the strangest things can happen x

If it’s not to happen, I hope we manage to pee on a few parades before the last kick of the season - one particular parade especially :innocent:

6 league games to go and not one of them easy - lots to play for still, even if it does eventually just turn out to be just for pride!

Winning our remaining home games would be a good way to see out the season. Six straight wins would be even better.🙏
