Before I continue on with the update, I'll be honest - I actually thought about suspending/stopping this save after the beta kept shutting off every time during half-time. Since then, I've been saving after every game, and even though I haven't "rage-quit" yet, I feel I am very close to cheating. I have my monthly rolling saves on, so I won't be saving game-to-game now on unless there are 6-7 games in a month.
Things are looking up!
With a minimum expectation of the board to reach the Fourth Qualifying Round for the FA Cup, I was a little worried going into the match against Hyde, especially because they were on a five-game unbeaten streak going into this match. Their strikers were on fire - scoring 3, 4, 2, 3, 2 goals during this streak. With the match stuck at 2-2 and seemingly headed for a replay, Lewis Norris volleyed in a Grant Jeffries corner.
I had never even heard of Bamber Bridge. On inspection, they seem to be two divisions below us, but a comprehensive victory against Halifax means anything could happen.
Thankfully, Bamber Bridge provided no shocks, and FC United won comfortably by a three goal margin.
Alfreton Town are in the BSP, and a very tough team to beat - but a large kitty awaits us if we get through them, so I'll be pulling out all the stops, even if it means changing up the entire tactic.
Last month, I said I would like to like to turn my defeats into draws, and that is what our team achieved this month. We probably should've won against Workington, but we never looked like we deserved it and we were lucky to draw against them.
Our position still remains in the playoff spots, but a mere two points away from the league leaders. I'm tempted to start working towards an automatic promotion spot, but I'll wait until January before changing my expectations.
A profit of £17k, largely thanks to our wins in the FA Cup Qualifying Rounds.
They haven't even been at the club for more than two months but Adeyinka Cole and Modou-Jobe have already become concerned about the lack of first-team football. As I don't need them and they came for free, I'm going to let them go for free at the end of the season.
