The Build-Up


The relegation-zone will see the most action in this weekends fixtures, all four teams have the chance to dig themselves out, provided the scores work in their favour. It will most likely boil down to only two making a successful fight, although it is interesting to see none of the bottom four teams laying down and allowing themselves to be pushovers.

Notts could find themselves back within the play-offs or at least just narrowly outside with a win today, it's important that county work hard to create chances today in order to progress.


Key Fixtures

Fleetwood v Crawley

Gillingham v Oldham

Port Vale v Crewe



Peterborough United find themselves in poor form, however I cannot write them off for that and I fully expect them to attempt to stay on top of today's game. A lot will depend on Notts and how they set up but I am going to predict a 1-0 win to the magpies.


Match Odds

Notts County to win 5/2 – Draw 12/5 – Peterborough United to win 21/20


Head to Head

Notts County – A win for the magpies could see them return to the play-offs as high as 5th depending on other results today. Realistically I see a win moving Notts to 6th or 7th. A draw could see them move to 8th or move down by a couple of spaces. A loss could see Notts move to 10th to 14th.

Peterborough United – If the Posh win the maximum amount of places gained would only be 3, they currently sit 15th with 31 points. A draw would see them remain 15th or if the results work against them they could drop realistically down to 17th. Similar if they lose, they could end up between 15th to 19th.


Key Man

Notts County; Roy Carroll – Although hopefully Roy will not be forced into action or held under siege for any long periods but he will be the difference between a win, draw or loss. Big Roy will have to make sure the defence are aware to threats from The Posh offense.

Peterborough United; Conor Washington – He will be most likely very lively for them today, if he gains his stride the 22-year-old will pose a real threat to the Notts County no1.


League Table


The top two positions will remain unchanged since the Doncaster Rovers v Bristol City game has been postponed but also Swindon Town do not play until the 31st of January.

If MK Dons beat Barnsley at home, they will move closer to the automatic promotion fold.

A win would see the Dons move to 51 points, merely 3 points behind Swindon Town and Bristol City, so the game for them is of vast importance.

Port Vale and Notts County both find themselves in a position whereby they could re-enter the play-off spaces, with Rochdale not playing in League One until the 31st and the same for Bradford City. In other news, Bradford have a trip to London today as they take on Chelsea in the F.A Cup.

Several teams could swop places from the upper to lower position of the League One table, Peterborough will be hoping to make ground away from the relegation zone. A lose for The Posh could seem them slip into the lower half of the table. Coventry City will be hoping to beat Yeovil so that they can move as high as 15th.

If Crewe win away to Port Vale this would see them move out of the relegation zone, where The Railwaymen have found themselves inside for the majority of the 2014/2015 season campaign.

Crawley will be hoping to step out of the relegation zone themselves, as will Colchester United and Yeovil Town.
