Jamey Barron has been in touch on the email.
Good to see us going ahead - back to full strength and we might just have a chance at tha playoffs! 3-1! (as I was typing!!)
We need a Darlington goal now and all other results to stay our way - with a run in full of 6 pointers, if we get a few wins we have a great chance!

70MINS: Daggers are looking good now and starting to get the party tricks out.
Southam is enjoying himself in central midfield, as is Gain, while Ritchie is now back to his menacing best.
Certainly wouldnt say this is the end to the scoring yet.
GOALFLASH: Matt Ritchie gets the third, slamming home the rebound after Southams shot is saved.
60MINS: Daggers move ahead here then as a corner was handled in the area and Saunders literally thumped the spotkick home.
The play-off dream remains on course!
GOALFLASH Saunders smashes a penalty into the top corner to put Daggers 2-1 up!
50MINS: A moment of madness for each defence there as first the Daggers switch off from a free kick, but Robinsons ball is cut out by Roberts and Southam.
Southams ball out was then taken up by Gain and he had a three on one situation, but Ritchie had strayed offside, so the chance went begging.
Definitely more goals in this one!
HALF TIME: That goal before the break was just desserts for Daggers and spookily predicted too.
Its definitely within the home sides grasp to go out and get the three points after the break.
GOALFLASH Paul Benson levels the game with a close range header after Ritchie's shot had come back off the post.
35MINS: Not a lot happening here now, as Hylton limps off to get some treatment.
Up front, Strevens has been caught offside a number of times for the hosts, but it must be said, the Daggers do deserve to go in on level terms.
25MINS: As the weather starts to deteriorate here, then so does the game it must be said, with Daggers fast start somewhat stalling.
They are still creating some fine moves, but the final ball is slightly lacking right now.
15MINS: Despite the goal, Daggers have shown no signs of disappointment here and they continue to play some good stuff.
Shots too are very capable on the ball, and its pleasant to say this is a decent spectacle so far.
GOALFLASH - Danny Hylton puts the visitors ahead with a superb shot from 25 yards.
5MINS: Daggers should be ahead here as Saunders fired a volley over from close in, before Strevens got the ball stuck under his feet with just Bull to beat.
Really spritely start from the hosts here, they look on their game from the start here.
