So, it goes to the last day

Hello all

Stockport's late, late equaliser now guarantees one thing, that the Imps will go into the final day with an outside chance of getting relegated.

It's been a crazy season and we already have more points than we did during the whole of last season and it still seems bizarre that we were comfortably safe going into the final game last year, whereas this year we could, in theory, go down with 53 points, which would be comfortably a record amount to relegated a team via the normal method.

The Imps can still finish as high as 15th and a win at Hyde guarantees the Imps will finish the season in at least 17th place, which would match last season's final position.

For the Imps to go down however, a strange set of results needs to happen, although with the way the season has gone, you wouldn't bet against it.


Dartford vs Nuneaton
Southport vs Luton
Gateshead vs Ebbsfleet
Tamworth vs Woking
Kidderminster vs Stockport

I'm not going to focus on the games involving teams immediately above us and instead talk about the other

ones. I think Gateshead will be fine against Ebbsfleet and will win, whereas I think that Tamworth will lose at Woking, so it all comes down to Stockport at Kidderminster. To put that into context.....Stockport HAVE to win at Kidderminster to have any chance whatsoever to stay up, however, they couldn't really have had a more difficult opponent really.

Kidderminster started the season horrendously, failing to win any of their first ten games......however, since a 1-1 draw at Alfreton their record is WWDWLDDWWWWWWLWWLWWWWWWWWLWWWWDWWWW, an absolutely incredible record that sees them go into the final day of the season fighting for the title. They have only dropped four points in this calendar year, an absolutely incredible record, absolutely incredible.


It would take a minor miracle for the Imps to actually go down. I can't see Stockport winning at Kidderminster so I have no doubt that we'll be safe. Obviously I hope we get something from the Hyde game so we don't have to worry about it, but even if we do lose I am confident we will stay up.

So I fully expect us to still be in the Blue Square Premier next season and I would be surprised if Stockport aren't in the Blue Square North.
