There are some really exciting games in prospect for the second Saturday of the Ryman Premier Division. Leatherhead currently top the table by one goal difference and go to Staines Town who were one of the pre-season favourites for the title but have yet to score in their first two games against Metropolitan Police and Bognor Regis Town. The Tanners have hit the ground running in two impressive 3-0 victories where Vasieleious Karagiannis has scored three times.
Dulwich Hamlet are second on two wins and a +5 goal difference. They make the trip North of the River Thames to play Hendon. Damien Scannell has made a great start to his Hamlet career with three goals in two games proving what an important player he will be this season.
HOW MANY TEAMS WILL STILL HAVE A 100% RECORD ON SATURDAY EVENING?
The other teams still with a 100% record are Burgess Hill Town, Bognor Regis Town and Wingate & Finchley. The Hillians welcome Grays Athletic who recorded a very impressive 2-3 win at Tonbridge Angels on Tuesday evening. The Rocks, who won 0-1 at Staines Town in midweek, make the long trip to Canvey Island who have drawn 1-1 at home with Lesiton and lost 0-3 at Dulwich Hamlet.
HOW MANY TEAMS WILL STILL BE AWAITING A VICTORY ON SATURDAY EVENING?
There are five teams (six if you include Farnborough who are yet to play due to off the field issues) still without a point. VCD Athletic travel to Brentwood Town so one or both will be celebrating their first points or three points. Kingstonian host the Met Police and Lewes welcome Harrow Borough to The Dripping Pan. Enfield Town travel to Billericay Town.
If you fancy a bet in one of the games of the day being Hendon v Dulwich Hamlet you can get a best price of 17/11 for a home win, 13/5 for a draw and 6/4 for an away victory.
