How many losses before promotion ruled out

Losing the first two matches of the season, however narrowly, has been disappointing.
We did gain 2 BP's in each one, but I wondered what this start means for our chances of promotion.

I know that it is very early days, but.....

Over recent years the promoted teams have been

2018/19 Ampthill W23, D1, L6 pts 120
2017/18 Coventry W27, D0, L3 pts 134
2016/17 Hartpury W30, D0, L0 pts 148
2015/16 Richmond W23, D2, L5 pts 116
2014/15 Ealing W27, D0, L3 pts 136
2013/14 Doncaster W25, D0, L5 pts 122

So, quite a bit of variation.

If there is a Hartpury in the league our hopes were dashed the first game, if its a season like 2017/18 or 2014/15 we can't afford another slip (all season!) but if it is like last season it is far more open

Dewnansek, a very interesting post! It is certainly a concern losing your first home match and allowing the opposition to score so many points at the same time. It was not so surprising to lose a close encounter at Cinderford in our second game. We'll see how we go on Saturday but I'm not convinced that promotion is the aim this season. For my reasons behind this I refer you back to a previous post about our ambitions for this season.

I think a top six finish will be about it, a lot of clubs have spent a fair bit of money this year and strength in depth will be our Achilles heel.
Still provided we win most of our home games I will be happy.

Top 6 would be expected . We need to increase the income and attendances to compete with probably 4/5 other teams in this league . Survival is top priority.
