It's been a long time since football was a weekly thing and once we've got the Shrewsbury game out of the way we'll be heading into the final month of the season with 7 games still to play in 30 days - 7 games that will determine our fate. 

This season's finale is perhaps more poignant as it looks like Ken Anderson has bet the ranch on us getting promoted and I dread to think what our financial position would be if we don't make it.

It's going to be tough. In the first week we have 3 games, two of which are away at playoff contenders Scunny and Southend, the other being a home tie against relegation battlers Chesterfield.
We'll also face 3 other teams fighting to avoid relegation in Oldham, Bury and Port Vale. In fact Peterborough are the only team we have left to play who don't have an obvious cause to fight for.

This demanding schedule is perhaps why Parky is talking about resting players and rotating the squad starting with the Shrewsbury game and that is the crux of the issue IMO.

With Pratley having come back to fitness, Dervite being brought back into a back 3 and Morais finding form it seems that Parky has finally stumbled upon the winning combination - only for him to have to change it at the business end of the season.

The question is therefore straightforward: Do we have the depth of squad to get over the line (automatic promotion) - or is the second string simply not good enough?

There's no doubt we'll go up in the autos now, Parky knows how to grind out results and with a game in hand we look home and hosed. Going up as champions or finishing runners up should be our biggest worry

I'll take the runners up spot with pleasure. Not sure my nerves are ready for the run in.

Nor is the biscuit barrel.

These are professional footballers we are talking about, 7 games in 30 days should be easily doable, why tinker with a winning formula ? injuries aside every player should give their all for the cause.

When I was at school, we used to play matches EVERY Saturday and Wednesday, and had training 
every Monday and Thursday, plus timetabled P.E/gym lessons and swimming.

It's clear to me that none of you have experienced high level sport. Whereas myself, I can understand how much a 90 minute pro game takes out of you.

No rotation today but potentially 3 more injuries. Still the lads have a week to recuperate before the decisive month kicks off.

Can't see Fleetwood winning all their matches as they have a lot more injuries than we do (I went to Gigg Lane today, it was awful) , so reckon if we win 4 matches it will be enough for promotion.
