It's All About Pushes For Play-Offs And Recoveries Tonight

By Sam Elliott

It may be a quiet Tuesday night by recent standards but the four games going ahead have a lot riding on them.

The National League North top seven have an evening off so it’s down to the others to apply a little pressure.

Scarborough Athletic, who have won three from three, will return to the play-off places if they manage another - but Hereford are also eying them up, too.

The Bulls are highly unlikely to win well enough to achieve it this evening, but they will at least move level on points with seventh place Brackley Town - if they can get the better of a side who won 5-0 at the weekend!

Chester, pictured, have a better goal difference and could find themselves into a promotion place if they win and things go their way at Edgar Street.

They face Rushall Olympic who have picked up with an unbeaten three-game run after a tricky October.

Eastbourne Borough and Torquay United have fallen well short of ambitions so far this season in the National League South.

The Sports - newly full-time - just can’t find any kind of consistency and sit just a point outside the drop zone.

Gary Johnson’s Gulls have lost six of their last nine as their return to the division they won three years ago has turned into a nightmare. Can they begin a recovery?

Maidstone United are also a recent winner but have so far enjoyed being back.

George Elokobi’s Stones will again climb to second spot if they defeat troubled Havant & Waterlooville, for whom today marks three months since they last won game.

If things don’t go to plan later, Steve King’s Hawks could be 16 points adrift of safety by 10pm tonight.
