I had butterflies in my stomach all week in anticipation of the next instalment of this remarkable season.
Maybe the lockdown is adding to the tension as in normal circumstances we would have been there en masse in Nailsworth to see if the lads could cut it at the New Lawn against Forest Green Rovers, the greenest football club in the world.
Instead, there has been an almighty scramble to watch this match with Sky covering it and thus preventing iFollow from doing the same.
The match turned out to be quite a tight affair with the Wanderers putting in a good solid performance and the match being decided by a superb finish from Eoin Doyle from Nathan Delfouneso’s cross.
With Bolton’s defence once again standing firm and Rovers’ poor play in the final third, it looked like Matt Gilks had been put on furlough. Mind you, his 'coaching' from the back kept him occupied and the rest of the team on their toes.
There is a great togetherness amongst the team, the club and the fans, epitomised by captain Antoni Sarcevic being there, supporting the team whilst out injured.
It is so important to take one game at a time. All thoughts should now be focusing on Colchester United on Good Friday.
As fans, we sadly cannot be there to cheer our beloved Wanderers on, but we can do our best to help the noble cause.
This is not the time to change any lucky pre-match rituals. My flat hat will be staying firmly put for match days and I certainly will not be changing the Doombar until the final whistle at Crawley in May.
It is beginning to look good but we have won nowt yet but with nine more cup finals to go, we can proudly sing “We are staying up, we are staying up!”
