On Grand National weekend there were some fallers in the race for the play-off places and in the title race. Wingate and Finchley, Bognor Regis Town and Leatherhead can no longer reach fifth place with Leiston now only able to get to 72 points (Enfield Town's current total) so they now rely on goal difference and Town losing both their final games in order to get to fifth place along with a mathematical conundrum and unique combination of results from the other sides involved.
In the race for the title Maidstone United now only really need one more win which would put them on 97 points being the total amount of points Hendon can achieve should they win all their remaining games. The Stones have a +19 goal difference advantage. A defeat or draw for Hendon next Saturday at Grays Athletic and a win or draw for Maidstone United at Dulwich Hamlet would crown the Kent side Championship. Hendon had turned around going down 0-1 at home to Hamlet yesterday and were winning 2-1 going into the final minutes of the game only for Hamlet to equalise in the 89th minute - they had been down to 10 men from the 38th minute when James Fisher was red-carded.
Margate can no longer finish top following their 1-0 defeat at Leatherhead. They have (at least) secured third spot but could still finish as runner's up.
Sunday afternoon saw East Thurrock United bow out of the play-off race with a 2-2 draw at Kingstonian. United had lead 1-2 going into the last 10 minutes but a Alan Inns goal in the 82nd minute made it 2-2.
The following sides can still finish in fourth place -
KINGSTONIAN (on GD)
As well as the above the following sides can still finish in fifth place -

RYMAN PREMIER DIVISION TABLE
|15||HAMPTON AND RICHMOND||44||-20||51||57|
|21||PEACEHAVEN AND TELSCOMBE||44||-24||47||53|
At the foot of the table it's now looking very bleak for both Witham Town and AFC Hornchurch following their defeats at Tonbridge Angels and Enfield Town. To have any chance of staying up they need to win all of their remaining games and hope that both Harrow Borough and VCD Athletic lose their games. VCD's victory over Wingate lifted them out of the bottom four with their place being taken by Peacehaven and Telscombe who lost their sixth game in a row without scoring! Hampton's 0-4 victory over Canvey Island has more or less confirmed their Premier Division place - for them to go down all the sides beneath them would have to show a remarkable turn in form.
A defeat or draw for either Witham Town (at home to Met Police) or AFC Hornchurch (at home to Peacehaven and Telscombe) next Saturday will confirm relegation and Division One (North) football for the 2015/16 season.
