Looking at then Weather Forecast for this weekend, especially Saturday, there is a verey high chance of rain.

Starting at 1200 o0n Saturday the % chances each hour are:

1200 - 52%, 1300 - 69%, 1400 - 84%, 1500 - 92%, 1600 - 96%, 1700 - 96%, 1800 - 92%, 1900 - 86%, 2000 - 77%

2100 - 68%, 2200 - 63%, 2300 - 57%, 0000 - 46%, 0100 - 35%, 0200 - 25%, 0300 - 17%, 0400 - 14%, 0500 - 13%

0600 through to 1500 (Kick Off) the rain chances are between 10 and 5%.

Will we be prepared to cope with this continuos downpour and the likelyhood of a Waterlogged Pitch?

Will there be a Pitch Inspection on Sunday Morning?

Nothing is guaranteed (otherwise we wouldn’t have lost to Farsley Celtic or Kettering) but you’d think we could beat Boston Utd so you’d hope the game went ahead as three more points would put pressure on other teams. Another game in hand doesn’t help.

With a potential 2,000 gate and £40-££50k in gate receipts.  I have a strong feeling this will be on
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

Doug, you’re right that nothing is guaranteed and yes, based on league positions and home advantage, you may be forgiven for thinking it’s a home win. I think all that counts for little when it’s a local derby. Boston had their chances the other day, so I’m expecting a close game.
Will be good to see IC back at the Walks, after all, it was him who got us to the National League, I hope he gets the warm reception that deserves.
I’m assuming Ponticelli is still out, although we may have a new player in the team, maybe not to start the game though. Hopefully the last time we play Boston for a while.

Well said John, I’m sure you’re right. It may well be close and I worry a bit more about home games even if that’s not entirely logical. An emphatic performance and win would be reassuring and, I think, give the lads some renewed confidence. Fingers crossed. Happy new year everyone.

I'm a bit of a weather nerd (this is what retirement does haha). There is still quite a lot of rain to come this evening according to the satellite but by the early hours it should become much drier. Whether there is enough time for the pitch to be playable is debateable.

Well, with travelling for Boston not being too far, we can afford a later call.
