A tricky week for Yeovil, ending in their defeat at Welling United yesterday would normally spell disaster for the Glovers, but with a full 12 game programme on Saturday, let’s see if there’s been a real impact on the league leader’s gap at the top.

We start in Kent, where Tonbridge Angels made light work of 10-man Havant & Waterlooville, hammering the bottom-placed side 4-1 to hover just outside the playoff spots. There were also some upsets, with St Albans City pulling off an impressive 3-2 win over Maidstone, ex-Glover Shaun Jeffers finding himself on the scoresheet, while Dartford hit Torquay United for three in a first half demolition, the defeat leaving the visitors hovering in mid-table.

There were more trip-ups for frontrunners too, as Farnborough held on for a 2-2 draw at home to Bath City, while W*ymouth benefitted from a Charlee Hughes own goal to share the points at home to Aveley. Another playoff contender, Braintree Town, fell victim to a Slough Town side that were out to prove that there is life after George Alexander, who was recalled from his loan spell by Bromley only to be sent out to division rivals Dartford (Alexander scored on his debut for Dartford today).

Truro City put to rest a 7 game winless run in the league by nabbing the three points away to Chelmsford City, while Chippenham Town attempted a late comeback at home to Hampton & Richmond, but to no avail, both these games finishing in 2-1 wins for the away sides. Taunton and Worthing played out a 1-1 draw, with the hosts scoring an 88th minute equaliser, while there were two 1-0 wins for Weston-super-mare and Hemel Hempstead, over Dover Athletic and Eastbourne Borough respectively.

Yeovil will look to get back to winning ways against Wrexham in the FA Cup Second Round on Sunday, up the Glovers!
