Something For The Weekend: National League South

3 months ago By Sam Elliott

Four of the top five are in action so what clues will we get to the destination of the National League South title?

We have featured all those games involving the sides at the summit - with fourth vs fifth one of the fixtures to keep an eye on.

The goals flowed last weekend, especially at Clarence Park. That’s where our preview begins and where our feature game takes our social media team to on Saturday!

But it isn’t the only game of interest taking place.

We will be providing coverage from as many grounds as possible so keep a close eye on twitter this weekend.

St Albans City v Dartford

This has all the makings of a classic. Leaders Dartford away to a St Albans side who have just come off the back of putting seven past East Thurrock United.

It was the Saints for in the second half of last season which really let them down and Ian Allinson has always maintained their can’t be a repeat of that collapse.

Dartford haven’t been as great away from home as they have been at Princes Park and victory in Hertfordshire would send out a priceless message.

Havant & W v Braintree Town

One thing is for sure: We are about to find out if Braintree have the stomach for the title fight!

After coming undone at Welling last week and at home to Hemel the match before, they can’t afford a repeat at promotion rivals Havant. They know a third straight defeat could be damaging.

Lee Bradbury decided to put some first team players out for Tuesday night’s County Cup tie with Hamble and they scored eight times. Matt Tubbs will be pushing for inclusion after firing in a hat-trick.

Bath City v Hampton & RB

Can Bath be the ones to finally kicked Hampton’s incredible unbeaten run into touch? Well not if Tuesday night is anything to go by.

The Romans weren’t at the races at Weston in midweek. Losing 4-2, if they are anything like as open then Alan Dowson’s side will surely exploit them like the Seagulls did.

It’s 21 matches without defeat now for the Beavers. Their manager says their emphatic form is hardly mentioned. They have been doing their talking on the pitch well enough for month now.

National League South fixtures:
Bath City v Hampton & RB
Bognor Regis v Truro
Chelmsford City v Chippenham
Concord Rangers v Oxford City
Eastbourne Borough v Hungerford
Gloucester City v Poole Town
Havant v Braintree Town
