The Dons match is on Freeview Channel 95 and Sky Channel 424 but isn't being transmitted until 2am on Sunday morning.

Just to confirm that if we win we will definitely finish 5th. (Unlikely I know! :wink: )

If we lose but York beat Newcastle and Barrow beat Keighley, we'll still finish 5th.

If we draw, we'd still be overtaken by either Newcastle or Keighley if they won.

If we were to assume that Newcastle and Keighley are even money chances to win their games (they'd probably be longer odds to win than that if Barrow and York are trying their best to win), the odds of both losing would be around 3/1. That would mean the Dons have something like a 25% chance of making the play-offs.

In reality, as I've been skinny with the Newcastle and Keighley odds, we've probably got a slightly better than a 25% chance, maybe a 30% chance of still being 5th at 5pm on Sunday.

The bookies aren't showing any prices for the games yet. It'll be interesting to see what odds they come up with.

If we score!
War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

Thank God I'm an atheist.

What a pity.

Exactly, but perhaps it the right time for late night horror. I was reliably informed on Sunday that a fair few of the regular team players cannot get time off work so its anyone's guess what the 17 will be (providing we can put 17 out)

RH is quoted in the League Express stating 'There are a few that can't travel because of work, so there will be some changes to the side, but we'll still be sending a strong team'.

Yes the Keepmoat game wasn't one to remember... well, not for the right reasons!

Regardless of the result this weekend, the game should tell the coach a little bit more about who he wants to keep and who he wants to release, so the players should have plenty to play for from a personal point of view.
