Gloucester City hold a six point advantage in the National League North – but they aren't playing, so will the other contenders grab their chance?

York City have games in hand but need to get wins on the board, they are at out-of-form AFC Telford United.

Second-place Chester are at Blyth Spartans - after they lost there 8-1 two seasons ago, the Blues need to make a point.

Boston United and Brackley Town, meanwhile, meet in a promotion contender face-off.

In the National League South, will we have new leaders come 5pm on Saturday night?

St Albans City have a chance but they need to beat hurting Maidstone United at Clarence Park.
