We had ten games to play in April.

We lost at home to Barnsley, drew at Gateshead, then lost at Scunthorpe.


After seven games without a win, we thumped Gateshead by 5-1 at Feethams on 11th April.




We lost, though, at Mansfield on 18th April


We drew 1-1 with Carlisle in a re-arranged game on 20th April
