    As the title says - who do you want Notts to meet in the play-offs? If we're on our game we've got a good chance against anyone IMO. I'm just very keen we avoid Mansfield if they somehow qualify. I wouldn't mind Lincoln myself as it's a good ground to visit. Exeter would obviously be a pain. And it doesn't matter to me whether we're home or away for the second leg. There's no evidence that there's any advantage in playing the second leg at home - if you're away you have the chance to really kill the opposition off with an away goal. Thoughts?

    Liam Walker has suggested that a lack of game time prompted him to make the decision to leave Notts County ahead of the end of the League Two season. The 30-year-old joined the Magpies last summer from Gibraltar Premier Division outfit Europa FC but made just 19 appearances in total, struggling to even make the bench in recent weeks. Notts confirmed the news of Walker's contract being terminated by mutual consent on Monday afternoon, stating that he had left "with immediate effect to pursue opportunities elsewhere". "Well my time at Notts County has come to an end," Walker wrote on social media. "It has been a hard season personally for me with the lack of game time and I have taken the decision to cancel my contract and move on. "I would just like to thank the fans and all those who did believe in me. Wish the club all the best for the future and good luck for the playoffs."

    Coventry for me, the weaker of the three teams likely to be in the play-offs. However McNulty and Biamou are very good players and most of their players are in form at the moment.

    I’m not bothered because everyone starts with a clean sheet I would however prefer to be at home in the second leg knowing what we’ve got to do to get to Wembley and having a big home crowd roaring them on.

    I'm not bothered. I think none of the games will be easy, so it's really about how we go into the matches and perform really. I think a tougher test might make things easier all-round, I know people will think naturally that the weaker team will be better and that a tougher team to start off with gives us a slimmer chance - yet in my opinion we performed better when we had no expectations. Lincoln could be a difficult game being a local derby, we've also done well against them this season in both league games - could we make it a third? I'm unsure, sods law would suggest no. Coventry is one of them that I wouldn't really be keen on, we did crap in our first game but well at home. It's difficult but whoever who end up with, I think we can do well - provided we go into the games prepared and alert to the changes which happen during the games. Kevin Nolan can't be slow to tell people to step up or perform harder.

    Coventry as i think we can take them the most. Exeter play decent football and Lincoln as an absolute no no. Lincoln are good in high pressure games i.e. Wembley against Shrewsbury. Send them to Exeter with only a corner of the stand to sit in, they can't create an atmosphere. Coventry, for me, weren't anything special when they came to ML.

    Don't think the away rule applies in the play offs now @DangerousSausage,certainly not n the Championship playoffs- if scores are level after normal time just extra time then penalties.
