Darlington vs Kidderminster Harriers - National League North

It’s been a week to remember for Kidderminster Harriers and their fans.

Last Saturday they defeated Championship Reading in the biggest FA Cup upset of the weekend. Then they secured a money-spinning tie with West Ham before coming from behind to defeat Farsley Celtic on Tuesday.

Now they face another test against a club who have served warning of their intent.

Saturday’s 6-0 stuffing of Farsley moved the Quakers to within a victory of the play-offs - can they edge someone out on Saturday?

Oxford City vs Billericay Town - National League South

We’re about to enter a big few weeks in both these club’s seasons.

Oxford City were leading the way in the National League South just a few short weeks ago.

But a run of only one win in five - with four of those home matches - has cast a bit of a shadow.

Oxford are back in front of their own fans again on Saturday and although the team are just three points off the leaders, a slip up would be a big set-back.

Billericay have a carrot - three points will be enough to lift them off the bottom of the table.

Lately they have shown they know how to keep the division’s title hunters in their place - taking valuable points at Ebbsfleet, and last week against a very in-form Maidstone United.

Now they want to get the win that would see their survival hopes given a big boost - and put Essex rivals Braintree Town back in the relegation zone.

It should be another big weekend!
