The majority of the 24 teams in the Ryman Premier Division have played six games to date with only Hampton and Harrow without a victory so far. Four teams remain unbeaten who are the current top two in Kingstonian and Dulwich Hamlet whose impressive starts can be seen in their odds for the title being slashed from 22/1 and 33/1 into 13/2. Lewes and Wealdstone make up the quartet of clubs without a defeat.
Enfield Town's odds for the title glory have lengthened from 40/1 to 66/1 after two wins out of six but this wasn't the aim for the season so I think these would more realistically be the 100's and 200's (add another 0 maybe!) currently given to clubs such as Wingate, Bognor and Carshalton.
With three wins from six and currently in eighth place it's Maidstone United who are still slight favourites for the title at 6/1. Their home game with current leader's Kingstonian tomorrow is a really important one for both sides so it should be an exciting afternoon for the 2,000ish crowd expected at The Gallagher Stadium.
There could be goals galore tomorrow at Grosvenor Vale as Cray (worst defence) visit Wealdstone (best attack). Will the Cray back line be able to cope with the experience of McGleish and Little? There is no surprise that BET365 make The Stones 4/9 odds on to earn a victory tomorrow with Wanderers at 4/1. It looks even worse for The Wands when you see that fourteen of the nineteen goals they have let in have come in their last three games and that four of those were against Thamesmead a team who had failed to score in four out of their five opening fixtures. Expect a 0-1 Cray away win now!!

When will Harrow and Hampton gain their first win?
Both are on their travels tomorrow.The Beavers go to East Thurrock United who have won their last two games in a row and have signed the experienced midfielder Stuart Thurgood from local rival's Thurrock to bolster their already decent squad. Another ex Thurrock midfielder Luke Wanadio scored both of their goals in their Bank Holiday Monday 1-2 victory at Carshalton Athletic. He also played for Kingstonian last season.
Harrow go to Leiston who after a good start have lost their last two games at home to Bury Town (0-4) and at Lowestoft Town on Monday (3-0). Borough have had a decent 0-0 draw at home to Kingstonian so are capable but Leiston should be too strong for them. They had 10 men for the second half v Lowestoft and the 0-4 defeat v Bury was apparently not a clear indication of the game in which Leiston had some good spells. Could Dave Anderson's side get a point or a win at Victory Road?
Enfield Town's game at home to our old Division One (North) rivals from south of the river has NIL-NIL written all over it as 2.16 goals conceded per game plays 2.83!!
