Hartlepool United have only 21 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 seven games remaining in the campaign as we continue to push for League Two survival this year.

Sitting in 21st place in the table on 41 points, we are eight 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 relegation 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.

A more comfortable midtable finish could be on the cards depending on whether results go our way.

Run In:

Hartlepool United v Portsmouth – Sat 1 Apr – 15:00
Morecambe v Hartlepool United – Sat 8 Apr – 15:00
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

  • Points win prizes. As I see it here are my points predictions. (hopefully). I think we need more than 46 points to be safe .
    Portsmouth draw or loss =1
    morecambe win -3
    Carlisle draw -1
    Orient draw -1
    Barnet win -3
    Cheltenham draw because it will make both teams safe -1
    Donny loss / draw -0 who cares
    9 points Pools with 50 points .

    You Pools

  • I strongly believe that 6 points from the remaining 21 will see Pools safe, though where these will come from I can’t predict. The games at Orient and Cheltenham would appear, on paper, to be the best opportunities but !
    Should we get 6 points this will leave Newport and Orient requiring 5 wins from their remaining 7 matches – unlikely I’d expect.
