Nostrupredictus Puts His Thinking Cap On

11/Mar/2006 (Gravesend and Northfleet) - Anon

Only a quarter of the season left now, so time for me to look at the remaining fixtures and see if we can make the playoffs and bring in some extra funds to help the club's financial crisis. I am looking at the seven teams around us, and this is after Tuesday March 7th's fixtures - having just returned from a damp Dagenham with 3 points.

Firstly Accrington, they look well secure as Champions elect, and good luck to them. I can remember as a lad when they dropped out of the league 44 years ago. Hereford could finish with a further 6 wins & 4 draws. It will be a big game here at Kit-Kat Crescent on the last day of the season. Halifax have a tough run in and may only amass a further 17 points. Stevenage should achieve 3 wins only and four draws. Morecombe have a hard time at the back end of the season and can only hope for 3 wins and 3 draws.

Judging on current form, Grays and Exeter have bounced back just at the wrong time for us although they have the added fixtures congestion of the two legged semi-finals of The Trophy. Grays may struggle with their small squad and I predict for them only two wins and 5 draws. Exeter should achieve 5 wins and 4 draws. Coming to ourselves, here the heart takes over but on current form we should get another 22 points from the remaining games.

So the final table could read Accrington as Champions, Hereford with 82 points, York City 75 points, Halifax 74 points, Exeter 69 points and they would all go into the playoffs and missing out will be Stevenage 66 points, Morecambe 63 points and Greys with 62 points. Time will tell, fingers crossed, and really do keep the faith. Up the City!
