It was a second defeat in a row for Yeovil Town on Tuesday night, as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Chippenham Town. Let’s see how the rest of the league got on, across the first half of the week of fixtures!

The standard Monday night slot was taken up once again by Aveley, who continued their push for the playoffs with a 2-1 win at home to Tonbridge Angels. Moving on to Tuesday, and we begin in West Sussex, where Worthing were dealt a blow in their title hopes as they were toppled by an impressive Farnborough performance. A Joe Haigh double helped the visitors along the way to a 3-2 win, bumping them up to 11th.

A shock came at Plainmoor, where Torquay United were handily defeated by Taunton Town; perhaps the extra rest from those postponements came in handy (more on that later!) – there were further issues for top-of-the-table sides on Tuesday night, as Chelmsford had a man sent off, and were sent home defeated by Maidstone, meaning all of the top three were defeated on Tuesday night.

There were three more 2-0 wins, all for playoff contenders – Bath City had a man sent off late on, but it didn’t matter as they beat a sinking Hemel Hempstead side, Braintree Town finished off another relegation candidate in Dartford, who were down to 10 men near the end of the game, while St Albans won away at Weston-super-mare, courtesy of a Shaun Jeffers double. In the final game of Tuesday night, Dover Athletic were denied their first win since January, as a late equaliser from former Glover Jack Clarke meant the points were shared with Eastbourne Borough.

There was a Wednesday night fixture to top off the running order, as Havant & Waterlooville came from behind to beat Saturday’s hosts Slough Town in a 2-1 win.

Finally, postponement watch, with our guest stars Truro City and Taunton Town! Truro had their game with W*ymouth called off on Tuesday night, while Taunton were supposed to play tonight (Thursday night as I write this) at home to Weston-super-mare, with the game initially being ruled as ON, before being ruled as OFF.
