Notts County 3-2 Sutton United...

Still a big task for Pools regarding automatic but it's a slightly improved situation now.

It’s looking like playoffs unfortunately which look ridiculous , why not make it the next 4 in playoffs like every other division 🤷‍♂️

Unlike every other division, only 1 team goes up automatically, and the play-offs are a brilliant tool to keep more teams invested in the season.

If they only had 1st and then 2nd to 5th for the play-offs they'd have fewer teams involved in the promotion picture than any of the leagues above them.

I'd argue it increases the competitiveness of the leagues.
