Well the Red Dragonss return to competitive action tomorrow after the enforced lay off caused by the international break. We sit in 18th position in the BSP (our lowest position since at least 1921) 3 points off the relegation zone and 14 points off the play offs albeit with three games in hand over our rivals. When you take in to account that the three games are all away against Stevenage who are 2nd, Kettering (3rd) and AFC Wimbledon (6th) one does wonder what sort of points total we will accumulate from these matches.
So is there any cause for optimism at all? Well there is always hope in this league as any team is capable of beating any team - clubs have a habit of doing well and then collapsing even from such positions as Burton were in last term. We have not played well for 90 minutes in any game this season so one has to say that we are due a good run soon but with FIVE consecutive away games if you count the FA Cup tie at Halifax the match tomorrow against Grays is certainly in the category of a MUST MUST win. The players have scored thirteen goals in two friendlies in the International break so now have the opportunity to get back in to league action with some confidence and start to climb the league.
Keep the faith
