    Travel this weekend

    The North Circular Road is closed northbound until Sunday from Chiswick roundabout to Gunnersbury Lane. Traffic along the A4 Eastbound is at a standstill. I would expect it to be equally bad tomorrow.

    Play-offs

    By my reckoning we are guaranteed a play-off place. I hope both Southend and Colchester flunk their last couple of games, but they might not. Every Bees fan, including me, wants an automatic promotion spot. IF that does not happen (unlikely, but possible) then who would you like to see us...
