Run-In Reviewed! National League Schedules

6 days 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 but then lost to Sutton United, they have twice performed the great escape can they do it a third time is the question.

Torquay United have lost their last two matches yet before that won their previous two games, they are another side with experience of staying up from this position.

Chester with Marcus Bignot in charge face three of the top seven sides in their next three matches, but end each month taking on a team fighting the drop as well.

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 have the most games left to play due to a number of postponements, the experience of Ady Pennock could be crucial to see them stay up.

Hartlepool United could be relegated twice in two seasons but will take heart from a gutsy performance against Aldershot Town and face four of these sides in the run-in.

Maidstone United gained their first victory in 2018, they beat Torquay, they recently had their game against Macclesfield Town called off last night due to a traffic accident, which meant players couldn't get to the ground.

Jamie Fullarton made it clear the focus is staying up, they defeated Hartlepool United with him watching from the stands then gained a good point at Eastleigh in the new manager's first game, then beat Woking.
