Canvey Island v Cray Wanderers
10th v 9th. Canvey tough to beat at home. Cray unbeaten on the road. Score draw maybe?

Enfield Town v Thurrock
Only Wealdstone and Concord Rangers (18) have scored more goals than Town in the last six league games. Thurrock have improved of late wining two, drawing two and losing two of their last six games. The two defeats being narrow 1-0's against Bognor Regis Town and high scoring Concord. A tough game to call. Will Thurrock attack or will they defend and look to hit Town on the break?

Hampton and Richmond Borough v Bury Town
6th v 7th. Both teams have near identical league records. Hampton only have one win in their last six and Bury Town were well beaten 5-1 at Bognor Regis Town last time out.

Harrow Borough v East Thurrock United
After losing 2-0 at Enfield Town the home side have gone on to record two good draws against Lewes and Whitehawk. The Rocks have two draws as well against Lewes and at home to Margate in midweek. Another close game which TheColdEnd thinks East Thurrock United may just nick.

Hastings United v Concord Rangers
The home side have the big FA Cup game against Harrogate Town in midweek and Concord Rangers are bang in form with five wins and one draw in six games. Maybe an away win?


Hendon v Carshalton Athletic
Arguably the biggest game of the day. The big relegation six pointer and a must win game for both sides.


Kingstonian v Bognor Regis Town
Bognor are unbeaten in four games and have recorded two good wins against Lowestoft and Bury Town in their last two games. The K's have lost their last three and have let in four versus Thurrock and Canvey Island in their latest games.

Home boss Alan Dowson has been busy this week releasing Sam Clayton (midfielder), Tom Hutchinson (defender), Dominic Sterling (defender) along with Byron Napper (defender) leaving for Divison One (South) Crawley Down Gatwick. Defender/Midfielder Nathan Green has joined on a dual registration from Billericay Town, Harry Harding (midfielder) on dual registration from Bromley along with two loan signings Callum McNaughton (defender - on loan form AFC Wimbledon) and Jack Barton (defender - on loan from Aldershot Town). McNaughton started his career at West Ham United where he was the reserve team captain.

Bognor should win this one but with all the new signings from a higher level for the K's they could improve.


Lewes v Whitehawk
Another big game for the division. The 'Brighton/Sussex/Coastal Derby'. Whitehawk need the points to continue their chase for the league title but the home side will be well up for putting one over on their local rivals at The Dripping Pan. The Rooks have recently released three players in Max Howell, Lee Cooper and Anthony Thomas.

The Hawks have signed up midfielder Junior Konadu and striker Arthur Gnahoua on loan from Blue Square Premier side Macclesfield Town. Konadu had spent two seasons with St Neots Town prior to moving to The Silkmen in pre-season. He started his career at Leyton and Ilford. Gnahoua played for Stalybridge Celtic last season.

Manager Darren Freeman has also added to his striking options as Jefferson Louis has also joined on loan from Newport County. Louis can certainly lay claim to the title of 'well travelled' as his former clubs list is fairly lengthy as follows - Risborough Rangers, Thames United, Oxford United, Woking (loan), Gravesend and Northfleet (loan), Forest Green Rovers, Woking, Bristol Rovers, Hemel Hempstead Town, Lewes, Worthing, Stevenage Borough, Eastleigh, Yeading, Havant and Waterlooville, Weymouth, Maidenhead United, Mansfield Town, Wrexham, Crawley Town, Rushden and Diamonds (loan), Gainsborough Trinity, Darlington (loan), Weymouth, Hayes and Yeading, Maidenhead United, Brackley Town, Lincoln City, Newport County and now Whitehawk (loan).
Whitehawk also have young midfielder Jed Wallace on loan from Portsmouth for another month. He has scored seven times in nine games and has been receiving rave reviews for his performances.

The Hawks should win this but Lewes (with four draws in their last six) are very tough to beat.


Lowestoft Town v Wealdstone
Without doubt the game of the day as 5/2 title favourites and in-form Wealdstone travel to the Suffolk coast for a repeat of last season's play-off semi-final which The Trawlerboys won 2-1 with a dramatic winner in the last minute.

Both sides have strengthened their attacking options this week. The Trawlerboys have signed highly rated Sam Newson on-loan from Division One (North) side Needham Market. Town fans all know how good Newson is and I think he'll have no trouble slotting into football at a higher level. Expect to see him on the score sheet soon.

The Stones have signed up highly experienced Chris Moore from Uxbridge. Moore has played in the footbll league for Dagenham and Redbridge and also for Northwood and Chelmsford City.

Lowestoft need to win this game to move back up into the title race but The Stones will equally want to win to gain some revenge for the play-off defeat last season and keep the pressure on Margate and Whitehawk.

Margate v Wingate and Finchley
Margate have won their last four games and have only lost once in seven league home games. They have also only conceded 6 goals in those games. W&F have lost six out of eight on the road. Anything but a home win will be a surprise?

Metropolitan Police v Leiston
Leiston are without a win on the road in the league. The Met are unbeaten at home in the league. However, Leiston, did win 3-4 at Imber Court in the FA Trophy on 30th October. Just 66 people saw this game so expect another low crowd tomorrow. Both clubs have drawn three out of their last six games so this could well be all-square after 90 minutes?
