15 Points For Hartlepool To Play For (14/3/17)

15 Points For Hartlepool To Play For (14/3/17)

Hartlepool United have only 15 points left to play for in this year's battle in League Two.

With the games dwindling down now at the real business end of the campaign as Hartlepool United find themselves heading towards the end of May, there are five games remaining in the campaign as we continue to push for League Two survival this year.

Sitting in 22nd place in the table on 42 points, we are three points off Newport County in 23rd place in the relegation zone so there is a semi comfortable buffer zone but with so few games remaining now the fewer slip ups the better and the aim has to be to get to the point where we can't mathematically be relegated now as soon as possible and then see if some momentum can be built for the coming 2017/18 campaign and break the run of successive relegation fights.

With three straight losses brought to an end with a point against Morecambe, Newport are on back to back victories themselves so it's going to be tight.

Run In:

Hartlepool United v Carlisle United - Fri 14 Apr - 15:00
Leyton Orient v Hartlepool United - Mon 17 Apr - 15:00
Hartlepool United v Barnet - Sat 22 Apr - 15:00
Cheltenham Town v Hartlepool United - Sat 29 Apr - 15:00
Hartlepool United v Doncaster Rovers - Sat 6 May - 17:30

Well my forecast is already 3 points down and Newport are three points up. We really need to get 7 points from the next 3 games as I see Cheltenham as difficult and Donny at home as a loss. Goal difference may be important but beating two sides will do a great deal towards survival............. YOU POOLS I still think we need 50 points
