Weymouth are going down, it's just a matter of when. They haven't scored in 5 games but 2 of those were 0-0 draws against Grimsby and Yeovil at home. Weymouth have picked up 8 from 57 away from home. Notts have picked up 41 from 57 at home. Notts will be odds on favourites. 3-0 I reckon.

All the signs point towards a home win. But I've learned never to underestimate our capacity for messing things up! If we go into the game with the required intensity and score early on we should hopefully get the three points.

A win's a win, we've increased the gap to 8th and kept the pressure on the teams above us. With Halifax losing, we're 7 point behind them with a game in hand. Another slip-up from them and we could be looking at a battle royale for third place.

It wasn't enjoyable listening though, it sounded as though we just relaxed after the second and third goals and showboated out way through a good part of the match. That's a very bad habit and could end up costing us dear.

Honestly 3-1 flattered us, not witnessed being this sloppy for a while, played like strangers to each other 2nd half. If I.B wasn't happy how does he think the fans feel

A winning team stepping down a gear or two when they're winning comfortably is a thing. But there's a difference between that and just stopping doing the basics like tracking back and letting the visitors have a series of chances to get back into the game. It feels like a harsh criticism after we won, but on another day doing that could cost us promotion.

Exactly my friend

We did the classic switch off after going two up. As they say, a 2 goal lead is always the worst one to have.

We were very poor for 65 minutes of the match to be honest and would probably have lost against a top half side.

One thing is for sure, Dover are just going to go all out attack against us as that seems to be what they are doing now in their games, with the goals they've suddenly found. We get rattled very easily and need to learn to play the ball over the top to get away from the high press as we struggle to play through it.

Other than that, a win is a win, and another three points tomorrow will see us go 5th. We need to finish no lower than 4th in order to avoid Wrexham for as long as possible, but it could be a very open playoff system this year as all teams look very capable of beating each other in a one off game.
