The most intriguing match-up in what is a quieter night than usual in the Bostik Leagues comes from the North division, where bottom club Norwich United face second bottom Romford at Plantation Park.
Steve Eastaugh’s men have yet to win at home this season, but will see tonight’s encounter with the Boro as an ideal opportunity to get themselves off the mark – and move above their opponent’s in the process.
Elsewhere in the league mid-table Tilbury take on struggling Cheshunt at Chadfields, while sixth place Bury Town will aim to climb the table when they travel to face a Witham Town side who have had a poor start to the season. Grays Atheltic host Potters Bar Town tomorrow night.
In the Bostik Premier this evening, seventh place Kingstonian will be looking to leapfrog Staines Town with a win at mid-table Brightlingsea Regent. The K’s have a 50/50 record on the road this campaign, so will be looking to make the wins outweigh the losses tonight.
Ninth place Wingate & Finchley could move as high as fifth if they beat Metropolitan Police at Imber Court this evening, while struggling Harlow Town take on Dorking Wanderers at The Harlow Arena.
There’s more to keep an eye out for in the Bostik South, where Whyteleafe will be aiming to jump to second with victory over Herne Bay at Church Road.
Leigh Dynan’s men boast a 100% record at home this season, and will be hopeful of continuing that streak against the 11th place Bay.
Seventh place side Cray Wanderers can move as high as third if they knock off lowly Faversham Town tonight, while Greenwich Borough will have eyes on fifth with victory against Ramsgate.
Carshalton Athletic are another side who will be looking up tonight, with their trip to Horsham looking like a prime opportunity for another three points. Meanwhile, Shoreham will be hoping to move off the foot of the table with a win against fellow strugglers Ashford United at the Taxi-Link Community Sports Ground.
