What's Coming Up In The National League This Weekend

By Tom Scott

It might be FA Cup week for most but there are still some big scores to settle in the National League North and South this Saturday.

While the cats are away it's time for the mice to come out and play!

We could have new leaders in the National League North.

Chester have a chance to topple York but they'll need to beat basement boys Blyth Spartans by at least three goals.

It might not be as straight forward as many think - Lee Clark's men have shown signs of improvement recently - winning their last two league games.

Third against fourth as Alfreton Town host Farsley Celtic at the Impact Arena.

Both sides have upset the odds so far this season and the Celts head to Derbyshire looking to make it five in a row.

Mark Bower got the perfect start since rejoining Bradford (Park Avenue) earlier this month.

His side travel to Gloucester City for a battle of two of the division's worst defences.

Elsewhere, Guiseley head to New Bucks Head to face AFC Telford.

In the National League South, Concord Rangers will be looking to stop the rot against Hungerford Town.

The Beachboys have lost all previous three outings without scoring a single goal - the Crusaders have their own problems however, just one win all season sees them propping the table up.

Tonbridge Angels produced an incredible display to shock Braintree Town last time out.

They welcome Chelmsford City to Longmead looking to do it all over again.

Elsehwhere, two sides desperate for a run of form are Bath City and St Albans who meet each other at Clarence Park.

Saturday's National League North fixtures:
AFC Telford United v Guiseley
Alfreton Town v Farsley Celtic
Blyth Spartans v Chester
Gloucester City v Bradford (Park Avenue)

Saturday's National League South fixtures:
Concord Rangers v Hungerford
St Albans City v Bath City
Tonbridge Angels v Chelmsford City
