I shall be away in Welsh Wales where the men are real men and the sheep are extremely nervous!

Any text updates or forum updates will be much appreciated.

Think it's unlikely I'll be there. Family stuff. Will be reliant on texts from somebody or other.

Disappointed to miss it because it should be a good game on one of the best surfaces in the League, if last season is anything to go by. They had a bad couple of months to start but have picked up since bringing in Arlesey's manager. They've also brought back Shane Tolley who scored a lot of goals for them with Mackey and Moore as they came up to the Premier Division, and he's scored in his first 2 games back.

Can definitely see us winning it but would be surprised if there's more than one goal in it either way.

As stated i won't be at the match but i can confirm i've already voted for my man of the match and made sure it's not Sean Geddes.

Thanks for your attention.

1-0 half time. Pretty even but we showed signs of getting on top last 10 mins. Debatable penalty - I thought the keeper made contact with Ryan but he was quick to go down

Havent been able to get to St Neots today so cant really comment on the game.

I just wandered what everyones thoughts are today. Is it a good point at St Neots? Im not sure if we should be doing better? 1-0 up away from home its disappointing not to win the game I guess, especially when Neots were down to 10 men for the last quarter of the game.

Looking at the results that St Neots have had against the teams around us in the league this season, it looks like it could be 2pts dropped?

St Neots 2-3 St Albans
Poole 2-0 St Neots
St Neots 3-4 Biggleswade
St Neots 4-1 Hemel
Bideford 3-2 St Neots
Hemel 2-0 St Neots
St Neots 1-2 Cambridge United

Our Boxing Day opponents even beat St Neots!
St Neots 2-3 Redditch

Five wins from eleven away games isnt to bad, especially when a number of our away games have been in midweek. But teams around us do seem to do a little better than us away from home.

We should have won today against a pretty average St Neots, but we didn't deserve too. We can't win the league and I expect wins at home and draws away will scrape us into the play offs, but there's no doubt iin my mind that we are not playing anywhere near as well as last season and are carrying too many passengers. I haven't seen any of the home game demolitions, and to be honest I can't imagine how we have scored 7 and 5 in the last two home games.

I wasn't at the game and only managed to catch the 2nd half commentary on the Bridge but from what I heard of it St Neots deserved the point.

It's always disappointing to concede when the opposition are down to 10 men but so many times they up their game in that situation and unfortunately it happened yesterday.

On the positive side, that's 3 games unbeaten and a draw when we didn't play too well (on the basis of what I heard on the radio).

Disappointing not to get all 3 points, especially after they were reduced to 10 men.
Ironically , after being second best for most of the 2nd half up till then, the sending off seemed to galvanise them into action.
We had a number of let offs before they equalised and in the end a draw was a fair result.

We had some good spells of football in both halves when we created chances but failed to put them away and credit to their keeper who pulled off one excellent save.
It was good to see Sam Rock coming on for the last 15 mins.

At this stage of the season , with only Hemel & possibly Cambridge of the top placed teams having any great consistency, I see no reason to believe we cannot make the play offs.
As Phil says a run of home wins and away draws could see us get there and then? who knows.

MotM was Sean with 7 votes, Ryan received 3, Will & Nathan 2 each.

Wine was won by Dave Gorton.
