    Just a preview i've been working on for a bit. It is my own work(not copied from Phil McNulty's blog on the BBC like some chump did a while back) and it was finished before the season started so I may be open to a bit of ridicule now.


    Accrington Stanley
    A unique football club. Say what you like about John Coleman but he's done an unbelievable job considering the poverty of resources available to him. It may seem this way every season to the Crown Ground faithful, but post the Lancashire outift’s annual stripping of key players this term they are more up against it than ever- key players Edwards, Gornell, Jacobson, Cisak, Ryan and others have all departed, many for nothing at all. Who knows where they'll be come May 5th?!
    Prediction: A step back for Stanley 14th

    Aldershot
    The Hampshire outfit made good progress following Dean Holdsworth's appointment and have a handful of dangerous players, like Jermaine McGlashan, but the play-offs may be out of reach.
    Prediction:A small improvement 12th

    Barnet
    The perennial relegation battlers had another incredibly close shave last time around- instead of sliding down into the mire from apparent safety like in 2009-10, they miraculously escaped thanks to a final day 1-0 win over a disinterested Port Vale, condemning Lincoln to the abyss instead, thanks to the heroics of last season's 4th manager Giuliano Grazioli, who has a well-documented love affair with the club he both played for and scored against in a 1-9 home trouncing. Before Martin Allen's controversial switch to Notts County(but that's another story) Grazioli was in charge of sorting out the ballboys for games at Underhill and so was completed a fairytale Roy-of-the-Rovers style legend that will doubtless be not soon forgotten as the celebrations kicked off in North London. Now he is second fiddle to experienced Lawrie Sanchez, who has Premier League experience with Fulham. Will the nail-biting final day trend be bucked this season? It's unclear, with Barnet yet to bolster the ranks with any new signings. But they might, just might, survive a shade more comfortably.
    Prediction: Bees fans will think they're in heaven 20th
