Leaders Dulwich Hamlet face a London derby against Harrow Borough tonight as they look to increase the gap on the teams below them.
Dulwich have picked up 13 points from a possible 15 while Harrow have only one win from their last five games.
The league leaders will be even more eager to win tonight as they face a top of the table clash against third place Metropolitan Police on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Merstham welcome Billericay Town to The Specsavers Stadium as they hope to get back on the winning trail after failing to gain a single point from their previous three league fixtures.
Merstham hit Lowestoft for six last month but since then have lost three on the spin, including a 1-0 reverse to the Suffolk side.
The club have issued a battle-cry ahead of tonight’s game and called on their fans for a “show of unity and support”.
A message, posted on the club’s twitter, stated that the Merstham players were “chomping at the bit to halt our recent run of adverse results” and the club wanted as many fans as possible to turn out and “roar them on to victory.”
