Dean Keates believes less than 90 points could clinch the title this season.

Lincoln City won automatic promotion to the Football League with 99 points last term while Crawley, Fleetwood and Cheltenham Town have all reached the century mark to finish top since Wrexham were relegated to the fifth tier in 2008.

This year’s winning figure is set to be much lower with a number of teams in contention. Current leaders Macclesfield Town have 59 points with 14 games to go while third placed Wrexham are on 57 and only have 13 games remaining.

“You have been looking around the 100 point mark but it is not going to be anywhere near that,” said Keates.

“Give or take, you might be looking at less than 90 this season.

“What will be, will be. We are undefeated in nine games, although we would liked to have turned one or two draws into wins.”
