Couldn't make it up. What a toothless organisation.....if you can call it an organisation. They need to take a leaf out of UEFA's book

lets just concentrate on beating barrow and dewsbury and then when the usual appeal drags on for weeks it doesnt affect us .

that should be us safe now, massive incentive for the barrow game, if we win it will take something very big from the bulldogs to catch us. and losing them 3 points will dishearten them for there derby against dewsbury

I hope the team aren't thinking on your lines wonky because I can see the Dogs players going out with points (sorry about the pun!!) to prove.   We still need at least 4 points from our last 3 games to be certain as they could get 44 points with 3 wins and their points difference is better than ours.   Don't forget our last game is with their neighbours who once safe won't want to lose them from their derby games.

Correct but we have to assume the Dogs could win all 3 games until they lose one.

We just need to forget everything else and concentrate on our own business . Sunday is a cup final and I'm sure we've tunnel vision for that .
After that , try and beat Dewsbury and attain the best you can . No doubt that's the message being drummed in . Win two games and tie the season off well

I wasn't meaning to sound over confident, but 4 points is all that's needed from our 2 home games. I have every confidence in our boys that we can obtain that. And if you read the dewsburys players comments there more than happy to send batley down. Huge day on Sunday now.

Terrible error that when you think about it , should never happen with such seemingly straight forward regs

We are relegating 5 teams this year because we are introducing a new system next season which sees the top Championship team (plus 3 others) with less money, playing the 9th SL team (and 3 others) to decide which teams go in to SL the following season.

 

So, what was wrong with only relegating 4 teams direct and the 10th team play the top team from Championship 1 for the last place in the relegated 5 (it would be either 5 relegated or no-one promoted in this case)?    I think that would have been a much fairer system to decide this matter. As it stands a team could be relegated with 42/44 points which last season would have been good enough for 6th position in the league table.

yes I agree Keith. We need a big effort as there is no pressure on barrow. Given the dogs injury list and current form it doesn't look good but you never know .I see the dogs v rams is 2pm ko

Batley match kicks-off at 3pm, it's the Sheffield v Haven game that's a 2.00pm kick-off.
