A draw down there would be decent.

I imagine FG will fancy themselves for this one.

For viewing figures alone I think they may plump for a Coventry vs Ipswich tv game if the latter get through.

Darlo vs Oxford if the former get through and I think we've a cat in hells chance of being on again in this round.

I hope BBC Radio Gloucestershire can find a better commentary team for the match live on the BBC Sport website. The two buffoons they found for the match against Billericay were appalling. One even said what a dump Billericay was before admitting he'd never been there before. He then retracted and said it was no Forest Green. He was probably getting confused with Basildon, but even so it was uncalled for.

FGR are flying this season so I'll be happy if we park the bus to earn a replay.

FGR was the poorest away facilities I expirienced last year. How many away seats? None available. And undercover standing - what a joke I was soaked. Away Bar and the toilets? tent and portaloo. Car park full.

The tent and portaloo are probably more environmentally sustainable than carbon hungry permanent structures and the full car park is probably a Potemkin village to deter car journeys.

It goes to show how shite we’ve got under this manager that we’ll be going into a cup tie against Forest Green as big underdogs.

Newport won their Replay 2-0 at Home to Grimsby tonight. They now play Maldon & Tiptree Away on the Friday Night.

If they win that, we’ll have no League game on Sat 4th Jan regardless of how we do ourselves at Forest Green...

Well that’s Newport into the 3rd Round, so our Home game on Sat 4th Jan will be postponed.

Just got to see if we can join them in the hat or we have a free weekend...

How many replays are televised? Only two draws so far, us and Crewe/Eastleigh (you’d expect them to be chosen first for TV because of non league) but depending on today, small chance for us I suppose.

On the flip side, they were on TV yesterday, so slightly less chance for them?

All depends how many this afternoon, and how many will be shown...

Callum O’Hare with a last min equaliser for Coventry v Ipswich,

That and the Plymouth game will appeal more for TV too.

Now comes the testing part with Keith, the Christmas period with us was a disaster when we were chasing promotion, the Northampton run of form is fantastic and similar to the sort of winning runs that he took us on.

I hope that he does achieve promotion, even their fans are wondering if he can finally achieve a promotion.

Their next set of fixtures are brutal though and should tell if they are serious contenders.

Portsmouth (A) Cup, Exeter (A), Forest Green (H), Mansfield (A), Crawley (A), Cheltenham (H).

I liked Curle, but I don’t think he’s a great manager. He’s an average lower league manager who done a decent job for us, nothing more.

The thing is, when we’ve had Steven Pressley for nearly a year, it does make Keith Curle look like Jose Mourinho as a manager.

Hopefully Beech is that good then we will be on the up and not bothered about previous managers, be they good or bad.

He gets a bonus point from me for starting Hayden.

Sorry but I think as others have said the replay date was given out on here and by the club on Saturday...the fact you missed it isn't the clubs fault.
Re a curry night on the match night
Its 48 hours since we found out we had the replay, if they plan a pre match meal it'll be on the OS as soon as organised..Twitter and no doubt find it's way on here.
