Can't go this weekend unfortunately which is a real shame as York was high up there on my "must go" lists before the fixtures came out. 

Got a feeling York will sneak it, not based on anything I've actually seen but it's been yonks since we won a big game, and as we saw against Torronto last year, York aren't afraid to get stuck in when supposed favourites are coming to town. (Of course that tag means nothing. If you looked at the odds for this year, you'd presume the Bulls are going to walk the league. Not so, the wolfpack didn't have it all their own way in L1 last year and they have a considerably better squad then than we have now).

Looks like York are doing a cracking job of selling this match too, should be one of the games of the weekend.

i think that York will win and i expect this to be the game of Legue 1 this weekend and one of the big games of the weekend overall like you said. i'm tipping York for promotion this year.

Just a word of warning to those tipping Oldham to win. I stand to be corrected, but I think we've won once at Whitehaven in the last 30 years, so I'm not holding my breath, but hope springs eternal.

I am hoping that the game of the day is between the outpost clubs at Stebonheath Park,Llanelli.

It would also be good if the name of a former club was removed from the League 1 Forum section of the site and replaced by

West Wales Raiders.

I don't know enough to tip but the York v Bradford is the pick of the round for me. Thunder fans have a fair drive if they will actually make the trip. I hope Crusaders have a good season.

Get some dosh on them - when I saw the Betfred odds they were down as 5th or 6th favourites which I thought was a bit "harsh" - I think they'll be pushing for promotion too.
