Can Anyone Crank Temperature Up On South Leaders?

By Sam Elliott

The National League South action is sure to be chill-a-minute this weekend, but can anyone crank the temperature up a notch on the run-away leaders?

The freeze put paid to Tuesday’s schedule and some fresh legs will surely be on show on Saturday across the division. Who’s going to be rubbing their hands together on Saturday night?

Yeovil Town manager Mark Cooper insists the title race is not over yet but gave his players some time off after going 13 points clear.

There will be plenty more rewards to come if the Glovers keep this up. They’re looking for a fifth win on the spin when they welcome Hemel Hempstead Town.

They surely can’t storm 16 points clear? Second place Worthing hope not, they’re at Tonbridge while Eastbourne Borough hope to stop Hampton & RB in their tracks. The Beavers haven’t lost at home since September.

Like the leaders, Chelmsford City want to make it five straight wins. Farnborough need to get their season going again after a slow start to 2024.

It wasn’t long ago that Torquay United and Dover Athletic were battling it out in the National League - the Whites know it’ll be another relegation if they don’t put a very good run together and soon. Can that start at Plainmoor?

Maidstone United’s FA Cup adventure is far from over, pictured, but it’s full focus on promotion until their trip to Ipswich Town. The Stones go to Slough Town, who are only five points off the play-offs themselves.

Elsewhere, Taunton need to end their slide at Braintree, St Albans takes their play-off push to Weymouth while Welling United need to take their FA Trophy form into the league and opportunity knocks at home to Truro City.
