The Sarnies have two games in hand over their nearest rivals currently in first and third positions. They have the best defence in the division conceding just 25 goals in 31 games played compared to 38 in 33 (Kings Langley) and 37 in 33 (AFC Rushden & Diamonds).
The Diamonds looked in with a real change for the title but three defeats in their last eight games - away against Potters Bar Town (0-1), Beaconsfield SYCOB (0-4) and, what could be crucially, at home to Kings Langley (0-1).
Kings Langley are unbeaten in nine games with their last defeat (another crucial game!) being at Egham Town on Tuesday 12th January 0-1.
