For most of this season, if you had told me that we wouldn't have been relegated by the beginning of May I'd have said you were mad.

Let's face it, we've been so far adrift that to still be in with an (albeit a wildly optimistic) outside chance of escaping the drop to the National League after the end of April with only two games left to play seems remarkable.

However, it is only an outside chance and if we don't win on Saturday we're definitely down, such is the margin in goal difference between us and Saturday's opponent's (who technically on paper we can still overtake), unless Scunthorpe lose on Saturday then our last game of the season against Newport will be a dead rubber as well as being our last game in the Football League.... at least for now anyway.

So, all we need is a nine goal swing in the last two games between us and Scunthorpe - if they lose both their last two games by a single goal then we need to keep clean sheets and score 7 goals. Given we've scored 7 goals in the last SIXTEEN games, that might be something of a tall order!

So what team will Phil Brown, who says we can still stay up, put out to vanquish Barrow on Saturday and it least (possibly) prolong the agony until the last game of the season?
