Newport and Morecambe for the final I think.

I think even with our squad now we would of beaten all these teams, I'm not thinking I hope they get promoted to give us a better chance next year, same with those coming down from league 1.

Morecambe to beat FGR in the final.

Would prefer FGR or Tranmere to go up for competing for players purposes

Morecambe deserve it, finished closer to being champions than to any of the other play-off teams, which can't have happened too often before. Good luck to them. Other than them, I guess Tranmere would be the biggest threat next year budget-wise.

Think we are probably better with Tranmere out the way, although Newport have been a thorn in the side in recent seasons and you can see them up there again if the manager stays.

that's a shame, would have loved to seen him play in the play offs.

Bad injury that, I can't remember him ever being out that long when he was here

Is that who reffed us in our play off game? Bloke should have never been allowed to ref after that :lol:

We picked up more points than Newport from when Clough took over, and only one less than FGR.

Half time Newport 1-0 Forest Green. A fairly even half, but a stunning strike from Dolan gives Newport the edge.
