Who Will Be At The Races Later In The National League?

By Sam Elliott

There’s a lot to look forward to tonight as the clock continues to tick down - so who will be at the races on a big sporting day?

The Cheltenham Festival won’t steal focus as the finishing line appears in the distance, but the chances of pipping Chesterfield to the post have looked less and less likely since the turn of the year.

They’ll move to within two wins of the title if they get the better of bottom club Oxford City as another big home crowd comes expectant.

The other races look like they will climax in a photo finish. The play-off quest brings home games for Aldershot Town, against resurgent Ebbsfleet United and old boss Danny Searle.

Gateshead need to be a little better at home if they’re to secure a spot. Can they win in front of their fans when Dagenham & Redbridge make the long trip?

The message at the other end is pretty clear - nobody is safe inside the bottom half.

Despite showing real signs they will be safe, AFC Fylde can also get things wrong and Chris Beech knows the size of their trip to Kidderminster Harriers. York City are at Altrincham and need a first win under Adam Hinchelwood with some very tough fixtures ahead.

Woking fans have been told they can’t be fooled by an incredible week - things can turn quickly. Three brilliant victories have given the Cards a great chance of staying up and they can haul Rochdale right into it if they leave with a win tonight.

Dorking Wanderers are at Southend and will take confidence from other strugglers’ results at Roots Hall this year. Boreham Wood are in a bit of bother but success at Solihull Moors could change all that.
