Vanarama Conference logo.pngEven though many of the lovers and fighters of the People’s Premiership have not got their breath back from the weekend, its a full programme again on the  morrow. Barnet go to Braintree fresh from a 0-0 that put high-flying Halifax in their place. Once Christened the pub team from Essex the Iron are climbing again, perched 11th with enough Devonshire  magnetism to pull any team apart.   Not exactly brown and mild and a pass round of a capstan full strength at half time nowadays but this is a derby fixture suggesting a clash of cultures where anything can happen. Mad Dod also has a 124 goal a season man up his sleeve. That sleeve must on a par with a clowns pocket, or maybe even a magician’s one because he is storing more fire-power than Guy Fawkes on a night out in Westminster.

Vanarama Conference logo.png The Shaymen will be beating their boss drum then? Apologies showing my age a bit there. Halifax have climbed back to second by virtue of the Braintree stalemate at the weekend and will hope to stay there with a trip to Alfreton. The Reds lost 1-0 at Dover after a 1-0 home win over Nuneaton but who would fancy them to get any points against Aspin’s finely tuned machine even if the Port Vale job may be tugging at his heart strings a little.  An end to the run that was looking as lengthy as a flight south for Gulls then Yes Torquay were finally stopped by the referee twice and  the Bucks shot four times. The Gulls went down to nine men as the wheels came of at Telford. They still only lost by the odd goal in seven but Forest Green could pose some problems as the Green Army pushed Barnet all the way before going down 1-2 at home to the Bees.

Vanarama Conference logo.png Bristol Rovers could make up over half the 3500 crowd at Eastleigh tonight following an additional 300 tickets on top of the ground being granted a licence to hold more fans. With building work not yet complete Eastleigh did not want to miss out on a pay-day.  Although the teams are a 100 miles apart this is a bit of a local one with the stuttering spitfires determined to regain that early season optimism. The Dragons slayed them 3-0 on Saturday but they are a different animal on their own battle of Britain patch. A big performance and a big win for the Gas that could see them saying amen to second or third depending on results for the Gulls and the Shaymen.

Vanarama Conference logo.png The Imps must Heed the Tynesiders who will come crashing at the gates of Impdom tomorrow night. Although a win halted the slide on Saturday with that great 10-man win over Macclesfield, we face a side very much on the rise. It is as if the clubs trajectory is a mirror of each other in all honesty. The Imp in me says a backs to the wall win, the realistic feels Gateshead could be anywhere between second and fourth tomorrow.

Vanarama Conference logo.png If anyone does slip, the Dragons or Harriers could pounce. Wrexham host Kidderminster in a massive between two quality sides that look destined to be there or thereabouts.  Wrexham blew a play-off berth last week despite dominating at Chester. Buoyed by Wilkin’s intentions to stay whether Tranmere make a move or not.  They have to win as Woking will get back to winning ways against Nuneaton.
