Tension is starting to build as we enter the home straight of the 2017/18 season, and every dropped point at either end of the league cranks up the pressure.
Our friends at Marathonbet are back once again to help you work out who’s worth a punt and who’s worth a pass around the National League this weekend…
The race for the playoffs is heating up in the National League, and this week sees two of the division’s most consistent sides come together in a fascinating clash at Meadow Park.
Boreham Wood currently boast one of the league’s meanest defences, but they will face a stern test on Saturday as Micky Mellon’s free-scoring Tranmere Rovers come to town. Rovers ran out comfortable 4-0 winners on their last National League outing at Dagenham & Redbridge, but should find The Wood a far trickier proposition.

At the opposite end of the table, Solihull Moors play host to Torquay Utd in a crunch six-pointer at Damson Park. A hard-fought 1-0 win away to Leyton Orient in midweek will give the Gulls renewed belief that they can pull off yet another great escape this year, whilst Mark Yates will be aware of the fact a win for his side could put clear daylight between Moors and the rest of the relegation pack.
The Moors were desperately unlucky not to take all three points last time out away to Gateshead. Back them to make amends with a narrow victory this weekend.

National League North
Harrogate Town look in irresistible form at the top of National League North, and the new league leaders will be confident of continuing their recent six-game winning streak with victory away to struggling Tamworth.
Simon Weaver’s men looked a class above in their 6-0 demolition of FC United of Manchester and should have more than enough to put the Lambs to the slaughter this weekend in Staffordshire.

National League South
Promotion chasers Dartford Town’s erratic form since the start of February continued to plague them last weekend as they slipped to a surprise 1-0 home defeat to 20th placed Poole Town.
That made it three defeats in five for Tony Burman’s men, and they won’t relish hosting a Hemel Hempstead side looking to consolidate their position in the play-offs. Expect a cagey opener in this one.
