Not the best but we should be favorites to make it through

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like

expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.

An understatement PM. Gateshead are struggling to make an impression in a very weak C1. You may get more against them than you would against amateurs.

But we would have more visiting fans. Against an amateur team bsj, I know you meant points, but pounds are more important, so long as we win

I never take any team or victory for granted BSJ...........except the games against Dewsbury of course :D

Aye, you won't get many Thunder fans coming down for this one and home fans are reluctant to pay at the gate for CC games (not included on season tickets this year). It will show who your real fans are (as will our attendance at Tetley's stadium as well).

According to BBC website, to be played Sunday 7th April at 3pm.
I wouldn't be suprised if it's brought forward to 2pm.

Has anything been decided yet? Or are Gateshead giving us a walkover?

Gateshead website says Sun 7th at 2pm which sounds likely

That is what it say's on the official Bulldogs website (under fixtures)

"Batley Bulldogs, Championship final 2013" 

"The Great Escape 2014"

2015 Pre Season, not entirely convinced

What are the admission prices going to be? Surely they are going to be reduced for a match that is virtually guaranteed to be a walkover?

Both clubs have to agree to price reductions and, given that not many of their fans will be affected, I can't see Gateshead agreeing to that.
