    you must be the only preview to not have Crawley amongst the automatic promotion spots. Any reason why? Just curious, as my accumulator involves Shrewsbury winning it but it’s more wishful thinking than logic!

    Crawley bought the Conference by buying a lot of players who’ve played in League Two, but their summer signings this season aren’t of the same or stronger quality. Maybe they’l spend big later in the month and in Jabuary, but I’m not going to predict based on what a club might do, because any club might do anything.

    Regarding Hereford, this is one of the few squads in recent memory where we have retained most of last season’s squad. Where have we had summer clearout? Jamie Pitman’s record since taking over has been good and, although I expect us to be no better than mid-table I would not expect Hereford to struggle in the bottom 6 this year.

    “Hereford United’s manager Jamie Pitman has released seven players and placed two more on the transfer list.”

    Bit of an unusual comment to say that Oxford’s “new arrivals don’t really look the types to push the club up the division” when three rejected contracts in League 1 to join and another rejected SPL contract offers. If anything I’d say those seem exactly the type of signings to push us up the division.
