    To go up as Champions requires 26 or 27 wins with a maximum of 7 / 8 defeats.

    To stay up, a team needs to secure 50 points.

    If we are still an entity this time next season – then I’ll happily take mid-table consolidation.

    Stop the rot!

    A brief look at the NLN standings today indicates that there are seven playoff places, and four for relegation. We will need to watch our steps next season, imo.

    Still in the NL, I see Yeovil secured the third relegation spot last night.

    Puts our opening day win over them into perspective.

    Been in the Championship more recently than us too. Seem to remember Paddy Madden scoring for them in the Wembley playoff final. Ten years ago?

    It also looks like Maidenhead or York are going to need in excess of 50 points to avoid the drop.

    To be fair we’ve never looked like reaching that figure.

    Good luck to Gainsborough tonight in playoff semifinal.Away to Bamber bridge,some old iron names there. Bishop and stamp management team, hornshaw and I think sellars-Fleming is on loan there. Leading goalscorers in their division and a tight defence.Hopefully they will progress and give us a local derby match next season

    Stockport stagnated in NLN for a few seasons- having been relegated to there in arguably a worse state than us- and actually wnet hybrid / part-time, being promoted as a hybrid full time / part time outfit.

    They were in the relegation zone for a while in their first season and humiliated by the likes of Altrincham and Curzon Ashton.

    What price a stable ownership who has the money, patience and time to see a strategy through- it’s the only way they came back.

    Mid-table next season with the club in such a sorry mess is a realistic aim. Will likely take 3-4 years to come back to National League level.

    Wonder if Stockport are self sustainable, I’m guessing not but that’s what our new owner is trying to achieve with us. It’s a big ask if you want the club to rise up again and be successful IMO.

    Trinity lost on pens. Matlock also out, so Bamber Bridge or Warrington will be a destination next season.
