We opposed Fleet at the weekend, they did lose but performed quite well in the narrow loss at Kettering and were denied by the woodwork and a fine display by the home goalkeeper. They remain in the drop zone, albeit with games in hand and again face three matches this week, surely they will have to focus on the two home starts and I expect them to go all out for the points tonight, they look stronger than most of the teams at the bottom and now that they are out of all the cups, they can fully focus on staying in the BSP. Their cup prowesss, they won the FAT last season and made two semis this campaign, should stand them in good stead now, as they can obviously peak for the big games and this has now become one. Visitors should be ideal opponents, they are conceding freely and are safe from any immediate relegation concerns.

GRAYS ATHLETIC - RUSHDEN AND DIAMONDS
Grays could do with the points here ahead of a "six pointer" with York at the weekend, who seem sure to offer far stiffer resistance than tonight's opponents. Rushden are in mid table, with nothing to play and are missing a number of players, Corcoran is suspended and at least one, will be forced to play carrying an injury. Grays got a bit of a thumping at runaway league leaders Burton on saturday, but did not chase the game after conceding early goals. That is probably the best policy, they had previously collected four points from tough games with Mansfield and Torquay and now, sitting just one point outside the drop zone and with a poor goal difference, we should see a far more committed performance tonight.
