Stockport, Lincoln & Telford To profit At Darlington, Kettering & Tamworth’s Expense

Stockport County, Lincoln City and AFC Telford could do themselves some massive favours against Kettering Town, Tamworth FC & Darlington today as the BSP basement battle enters the final six games.

Kettering could of course have any sporting chance taken from them by the courts, but that did not stop them beating the Imps one nil with just enough of an unpaid squad available to field 2-3 subs when they first faced a winding up order a few months ago. Stockport, with a defence to stress the Dalai Lama, would finish them with a win and do enough to put the fear of back -to-back relegations behind them. Saviour Jim Gannon is back and walking across water. A four nil win over Bath last week eased the nerves after another 5-o humiliation at Southport.  Some fantastic support witnessed the shame in huge numbers, hats off to the Hatters from the heart of Impdom!

Darlington fought back to 2-2 against Wrexham before going down 2-4 in front of 1401 disillusioned fans.  That is understandable, the aptly named Quakers have lost 3 on the trot with Kidderminster (1-3) and Ebbsfleet (0-2) adding to their woes after a 1-1 draw against Luton and another 0-1 reverse against relegation rivals Stockport. Since the 10 point deduction for their umpteenth admin thanks to the albatross of a stadium they have been in free-fall.  Darlo may get the break they need as Telford are hardly the form side after that decent February run.  They beat Forest Green 2-0 last week, but a 0-0 against Hayes,  a 2-1 defeat against Kettering and a 1-4 loss to leaders Fleetwood; makes the 2-1 win over Kidderminster look a long time away.

The Imps fresh from two wins over Newport (2-0) and Hayes (2-1) will fancy their chances against the far from gambolling lambs.  Tamworth do not let many in but then again they are not exactly getting many at the other end either leading to six draws and one defeat in 7.  The Imps have also seen lady luck given them some long overdue attention and 3 points today will finish the job with Louis & McCammon too strong for the lambs at the set-pieces that will decide a nervy low-scoring affair.
