Run-In Reviewed! National League Schedules

5 months ago By Tom Feaheny

The battle to stay in the Vanarama National League intensifies during the next few weeks with plenty of points to be played for!

At present any of these sides could stay up due to a good run of results, with a lot of the teams facing each other before the end of the season, writes Tom Feaheny.

While at the end of the season there could be a side or two that aren't even in this selection that end up in the bottom four, that shows how competitive the league is.

It is tough to predict who will end up in those bottom four places with some sides going on good runs during the start of 2018.

At the bottom currently are Guiseley who were boosted thanks to a win against AFC Fylde and Hartlepool United but know it would take some doing if they can perform the great escape for a third time.

Chester with Marcus Bignot in charge until the end of the season have lost their past three games and have just five games to go.

Torquay United have won their last two games and they are another side with experience of staying up from this position.

Solihull Moors are one of the form sides in the league, with three wins and two draws from their last six matches, Mark Yates though knows the job is far from done yet.

Then Barrow know their home form has to improve though the experience of Ady Pennock could be crucial to see them stay up.

Woking haven't won since Febraury 10th with Anthony Limbrick leaving earlier this week they are three points clear of the drop zone at present.

Maidstone United have lost their past three games and are five points clear of the drop zone at present.

Jamie Fullarton made it clear the focus is staying up, they lost for the first time with him in charge on Good Friday.

Hartlepool United could be relegated twice in two seasons but will take heart from a good run of form before Easter Monday.
