As we now have just 6 games left (for most) in the season and we shall be thinking about DIY and gardening, now is the time to put your cojones on the table.....Shocked

Who is going to get the playoff place and which 3 teams will occupy the relegation spots? 

No prizes given for the correct predictions and no recriminations for picking someones else's club. WinkWink 

To get things rolling, I reckon;

Bournemouth 

WSM
Ivybridge
Hornets

But what the heck do I know...?

Definitely not clear cut and there could still be some twists and turns, but my uninformed opinion is...

 Bottom 3:-

Ivybridge
Lydney
Hornets

Play off:-

Maidenhead

Its very difficult to see Lydney (or Hornets) scramble out of the bottom 3.  I am sure that they both have more wins coming their way but they are 15 and 16 points from safety and Weston and Newbury are not going to go without wins either.

Maidenhead and Newton Abbot still have to visit the Dorset seaside, so I would plump for Bournemouth as No 2 come the end of the season.  Newton Abbot still have to visit Maidenhead also.

Ivybridge have some tough games in the run in, so for me;

2nd Place
Bournemouth

Bottom 3
Ivybridge
Lydney
Hornets

Not knowing the SW scene very much, what chance would you give Bournemouth or Newton Abbott at Barnes, Tring or Hertford? (We all reckon Guernsey win the league secretly).

Hertford v Bournemouth a few years ago was a terrific game that was in the balance until the very end.

Difficult to say but looking at the points scored, the play-off will certainly be over in your manor yet again and the track record is not brilliant when the SW travels to the smoke... sadly.

Don't count out Maidenhead but see that both Nabbot and Maids have to travel to Bournemouth in 2 key matches..  Still think it will be Bournemouth heading up the M3.

No offence meant but I think the Lydney match away on the 10 March and the Weston Derby on the plastic could be key ones. Good luck anyway..Thumbs Up

No way will Weston go down,far to good.

Lydney playing well but think they are left with to much to do and Hornets also.Looking like Ivybridge to me.
