Next up - Marlow away on Saturday, 27th April at Oak Tree Road, Marlow, Buckinghamshire SL7 3ED; Bostik Isthmian League Division One (South Central), kick off 3pm.

Admission - No details available on the Marlow website.

It's the last game of a season that has brought us so close to the "bang" of the play-offs yet suddenly seems to be ending with a whimper. Three defeats in our last four games have left us well adrift of fifth place and yet still just about capable of finishing sixth.

To do that however we need Tooting & Mitcham to achieve no more than a draw at home to FC Romania and for us to win at Marlow. On current form neither seems likely but with Marlow surely keen to secure a good place in the play-offs nerves may yet be a factor. They are lying fourth in the table but could make it to second and thus a home draw in the play-off semi-final (and who knows the final as well) if they beat Ware and others around them lose.

Barring a staggering turn round in goal difference Ware can't finish lower than seventh even if Hanwell Town win their last game at home to Chalfont and we lose ours. That would be our best position since 2007/8's fourth place.

Marlow will have Jay Welsh and Isaac Olorunfemi suspended for this match. There are no suspensions for Ware who will have Gareth Madden and Dave Cowley available. Both players passed milestones during my absence on holiday, Gareth getting to 150 appearances in the home game with Uxbridge whilst Dave made it 50 in the game at Bracknell.
