Left it late at Oldham, didn’t we? Close to blagging all three points, weren’t we? Now got the league’s in-form team indoors next, don’t we. Not for debate, that last one. The Shakers are shakin’ things up at the top of the tree like Shakin’ Stevens. By forgetting how to lose games, Ryan Lowe’s team are marching on the summit and now sit within touching distance.

No glib remark. No pithy comeback. Just a lot of head-scratching. The Cobblers, who don’t tend to need asking twice to put one over us, brought us crashing down to earth like a rickety old Soviet satellite last weekend.

It might be enough to get us a spot in the playoffs, right? Or will our fluttering eyelashes fail to convince the bigwigs and end up wasting our time – something we do every time we […]

Timlin: The Missing Piece Of The Jigsaw?

In recent years, it hasn’t been Boro’s inability to score goals stopping us from escaping from League 2 and back into the sunnier climbs of League 1. We may not have set records in terms of our strikers, but we’ve consistently scored more goals that we have played games. It’s not the loftiest of achievements, but that’s generally a good barometer for a team that has better prospects of going […]
