Sigh, this thread was fun for a little bit. Thursday's results:
Two big wins for Clyde and Dumbarton, I'd be very surprised if that doesn't consign Forfar to 10th place, but still all to play for in the battle to avoid 9th and Forfar fans will be hoping that Stuart Malcolm resigning will have a positive impact; things certainly can't get much more negative. Results leave the table like this:
Things have got a lot tighter overall with just 6 points separating 4th and 9th; it'd be a surprise if Clyde or Dumbarton could trouble 4th place and I'd imagine both, Dumbarton especially, will still be focusing on avoiding relegation, but stranger things have happened. Any team really apart from the top 2 are a few bad results away from being in trouble. Saturday Fixtures:
Important games all over with a very tough fixture for The Sons. Clyde would be tough on paper but they've been able to spring results on Falkirk and will be in buoyant mood. A Forfar win (Ha ha, OK) would be have East Fife worried, but should the Fifers win as expected it'd have them looking at 4th place again. Doubtful that the game at Links Park should have much impact on the relegation battle and at Balmoor Peterhead will feel that need points again after throwing away a win at Forfar on Tuesday and seeing both teams immediately below them winning on Thursday night.
