To survive in League One we only need to win our game in hand, beat Wimbledon, and match them for the remaining games!!!! When expressed in this way it sounds easy, but nothing is ever easy for Tranmere.

I suspect 47 points will keep us up. That’s 7 wins.

We need to assume that we won’t get anything away at Posh, unless they have secured a play-off place. We’ve also got Doncaster away and Rotherham at home. Again, be tough to get more than draws from those games. The must wins for me are Lincoln, Oxford and MK Dons at home and Rochdale, Accrington, Wimbledon and Gillingham away.

If we concentrate on our points tally it will retain a focus.

Seven wins is a massive ask when set against our performance thus far. We desperately need to put in sequence of results because our run is not easy.Last night could be the start of this and it makes Saturday all the more important. To have any chance we have to turn around our dire home form

I can’t see us getting anything out of Saturday, but hope I’m wrong. Fleetwood are a strong team, and we’re playing worse than we were when we played them a few months ago.

We might not need 7 wins though.
We need to win 1 "in-hand" game and win at Wimbledon. If we achieve those two things, then we're 1 point ahead of Wimbledon and only have to match their points tally across the other 10 games to be safe.

Edit - sorry, just realised I've made exactly the same point as Tranman

No problem. Let's hope it works out that way.

Club needs to take the covers off and ensure the match gets posponed until near the end of the season when hopefully Fleetwood have nothing to play for or, better, they are guaranteed a play-off place and are resting players like Madden. That heavy pitch will be too much for Ellis.

You may get your way, the wind is due to peak in the mid to upper fifties during the game!

Of our remaining games Rochdale and Accrington are our best bet for maximum points but we were unable to defeat either at home. How much better things would look now if we had taken maximum points from these two games

With March about to begin I think that our fate will be largely determined this month. With the fixtures beyond then we need to ahead of Wimbledon and Rochdale. That almost certainly means winning the six pointers. in the case of Rochdale it is a seven pointer as it is also an opportunity for our goal difference to go ahead of theirs. It would be the ultimate paradox come the end of the season if we ended up looking back at the two goals conceded in a rare victory as a factor in our relegation

If you're talking Rochdale as being a 7 pointer then the ultimate paradox would be if we looked back at the two very late goals we scored against them, in a defeat that set the doom-mongers off from the opening day, as a factor in our survival.

The sad reality is that at this point I would far rather be in the position of Rochdale or Wimbledon but teams have survived from our position

Yes in their positions they only have to draw with us and they still remain ahead of us nevermind the seven or eight points that they already have.

So it looks like regroup time next season in League Two sadly.

Sod's law that Gillingham had to end their 15 game unbeaten run against Wimbledon!

Its a shame Ellis could not have come back sooner, but he's here now, that also gives Davies more confidence. Shrewsbury's win yesterday shows just how good that win was on Tuesday.
Slowly slowly catchee monkee....
Next up: John Coleman's Accrington. Dangerous (particularly Charles & Bishop) - but beatable, especially as we are now - at last - in top gear. Come on, this is Accrington.
Sooner or later Rochdale or Wimbledon will slip up.

Tranmere's fete will be decided in the five days between March 17 and March 21 when we play Rochdale and then Wimbledon. We must win at least one of them.

Far, far, far from simple. I assume you’re being sarcastic. Wimbledon , with the exception of the Oxford defeat, have had some very impressive results against teams near the top. Evidence of their bottle and resilience. I think they’ll be safe and can’t see us catching them. Rochdale have dipped yes but is that temporary form

Reality is we’ve left ourselves a route that is up a mountain that is perilously steep, caked in ice and we’re wearing slippers. Praying for a miracle

I think Rovers will do well to get 18 points from their last 12 games, and I think 44 points is the minimum needed this season to stay up.

Do you think playing on a better pitch enabled Rovers to win at Gillingham as to playing at the muddy PP.

Nah, I don't think so. Teams have come here and been very capable of playing decent stuff on it, i.e. Portsmouth and Doncaster, and the ball seems to run a bit better on it than you'd initially think. As much as I try to be positive, we can't use the pitch as an excuse in my book.
