It is almost imminent that my team are going to be promoted for the third season running, I started in the Skrill South and am now a few months away from League 1. My squad isn't up to standard and I feel like I could go right back down. Any good tactics for surviving when you are the weakest team? Or should I just stick with the one that has brought me up?

Go with the one that brought you up for the first few games and see how it goes. If it goes badly, something which has worked for me in that situation is going for the old 5-4-1. I have found if you have it on counter you can usually set up quite a few good chances against stronger teams. The one i use when i go up back to back is

                      GK
RB    CB    CB    CB     LB
RM    CM           CM      LM
                 ST(usually target man or poacher)

Usually works for me but it can be undone against good passing teams. But every tactic has drawbacks.

Thanks for the help! Just stuck with the tactic I got promoted with, but if things go badly I'll go with that one :)
