|8||BOGNOR REGIS TOWN||11||+10||20||DWWWWW|
AFC Hornchurch and Bognor Regis Town are the form teams in the division having both won five of their last six games. The Urchins travel to seventh placed Grays Athletic on the back of a narrow 2-1 midweek home victory over Carshalton Athletic. The Rocks entertain Enfield Town having lost their midweek FA Cup replay against Calor Premier Division Weymouth.
Dulwich Hamlet, currently in second place, have had a brilliant start to life back in the Premier Division after promotion from Division One (South) last season and face one of two unbeaten teams left when Lewes visit Champion Hill. The Rooks love a draw but I think the South London side will be too strong for them tomorrow having recorded a very impressive 0-4 win at Bury Town in midweek.
Third placed Kingstonian go to twelfth placed Billericay Town in game that is difficult to call. Billericay have lost four of their eleven games but these all have been by narrow margins of 0-1, 1-2, 1-2 and 0-1. I expect a close game tomorrow which could go either way.
Wealdstone are still unbeaten and welcome Margate to Grosvenor Vale tomorrow. The Gate have won three of their six away games and The Stones have drawn three of their home games 2-2 (versus Bognor Regis Town, Wingate and Finchley and Lewes) along with victories over Enfield Town (4-1) and Cray Wanderers (7-1). Expect another close game which The Stones should just shade I think?
Maidstone United (4th) welcome Lowestoft Town (10th and should be higher) to The Gallagher Stadium in what should also be a tight game but with The Stones unbeaten at home I think they may win this one.

JENKINS LEAVES CRAY
COULD THIS BE A CHANGE IN FORTUNE FOR THE WANDS?
At the bottom of the division Cray Wanderers have parted company with Ian Jenkins who was in the hot-seat for an incredible 14 years. He has been swiftly replaced with Keith Bird whom was in charge of Bromley Reserves recently. He will be assisted by Mike Payne who was also with him at Bromley. It's not very far for the duo to move as Cray currently ground-share with Skrill South side Bromley.
Ironically their first game in charge came against The Wand's Landlords in the Kent Senior Cup in midweek. Bird fielded eight debutants in the starting XI of which seven played for him with Bromley's reserve side. The other was young seventeen year old goal-keeper Charlie Grainger who is on-loan from League One side Leyton Orient. Tommy Whitnell scored twice for Cray and with the score at 2-2 the match looked to be going into extra time before a late Bromley winner made the final score 3-2.
The new look Cray entertain Metropolitan Police tomorrow who have lost four of their last six games. Could Cray record only their second win of the season here?
Fellow struggler's Thamesmead Town welcome East Thurrock United to Bayliss Avenue. They only have one win in their last six games which came against Cray Wanderers. Could The Mead also win tomorrow to shake things up at the bottom of the table?
Of the other teams currently in the relegation zone Carshalton Athletic welcome Canvey Island who will be in confident mood having won 2-3 at St Neots Town in the FA Cup in midweek and W&F go to Harrow Borough for a local derby. Borough have hit a bit of form of late losing only one of their last six games.
