Leiston's 2-3 win at Ilford and Enfield Town's 2-0 defeat at Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday has firmly put the Suffolk club in the driving seat for the Ryman Division One (North) title. Having said that it's certainly not all over and with Leiston playing Needham Market, Redbridge as well as trips to Tilbury and Maldon and Tiptree over the next four games it could all come down to Saturday 21st April 2012 when Enfield Town welcome Leiston to the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium.
Town have an equally tough run of four games prior to the 21st April with Harlow Town and Waltham Abbey coming to the QE and away days at Needham Market and Cheshunt.
In the race for the play-offs Brentwood Town's defeat at Harlow Town looks to have put an end to their hopes of finishing in the top five with a nine point gap now between The Blue and Tilbury.
AFC Sudbury's narrow but equally very impressive 0-1 victory at Tilbury has kept them in touch along with Harlow Town whom after two defeats have collected two wins in the last week. Tilbury's home record against the current top seven is good as they have beaten Grays Athletic, Enfield Town and Harlow Town with a draw against Needham Market. Leiston are yet to visit Chadfields??
A defeat for Redbridge at Leiston on Saturday will probably end The Motormen's hopes of a top five finish.
For Enfield Town two more wins will be enough to guarantee a play-off spot as that would give a points total of 83 with sixth placed AFC Sudbury only currently able to gain a total of 81 pts.
As the cold end states it's certainly not all over with both Town and Leiston facing teams which both have something to play for (arguably all must win games for their opponents) in their next two games. Therefore the league table could make different reading come 5pm on Saturday 7th April.
