I doubt that the average gate for the season will drop that much, when you look at the relative support of the teams leaving and joining the league then it would seem that there will be an increase in the away support this year. Luton replacing (hopefully) Burton and AFC Wombles replacing Lewes. These two alone will add something in the region of 1,500 to the total.
