Yeovil’s two game losing run came to end with their 0-0 draw away at Slough on Saturday. Let’s see how the rest of the league got on, in a rarely seen full schedule!

We begin at Tonbridge Angels, who thumped a struggling Torquay United to leave them just three points outside the relegation zone, following their ten-point deduction. Three goals in five minutes for the hosts secured them a 4-1 victory! There were plenty of goals to discuss, and plenty of 3-1 home wins at that, one of which came at Welling United. They continued their impressive escape from relegation with a big win over Weston-super-mare, two late goals securing the win for the hosts.

There were also big results involving teams at the top of the table – Chelmsford continued to apply pressure on the Glovers’ title hopes, as they defeated Bath City, while Worthing took another damaging blow to their title ambitions, as Chippenham Town secured their second 3-1 win of the week. The final 3-1 win came for Farnborough, as they defeated the 10 men of Aveley to reignite hopes of a potential late playoff push.

There were further big results for teams near the top, and the bottom of the table, as Hampton & Richmond condemned their hosts Hemel Hempstead to yet another defeat, the Tudors now winless since January, while the visitors jumped to 4th in the table, undefeated in six. Truro City continue to show signs of life, as they put a dent in St Albans’ playoff charge with a 2-1 win; meanwhile Eastbourne Borough moved to within three points of safety with a 2-0 win over fellow relegation strugglers Taunton Town.

Dartford had yet another miserable afternoon as they sit just inside the drop zone, with their main keeper Billy Terrell being sent off just before the hour in a 2-0 loss at home to Maidstone. Down on the south coast, our noisy neighbours W*ymouth were surprisingly resilient in a 1-0 loss at home to next weekend’s hosts, Braintree Town, while in the battle of the bottom, it ended 0-0 between Dover Athletic and Havant & Waterlooville.
