Billericay Town are still bottom of the Vanarama South Division with just three wins in their twenty-two games played so far. Could they be about to move out of the drop zone? In their last six league games things have improved with four draws, a win and just one defeat. Draws came against Maidstone United (2nd), Concord Rangers (16th), Ebbsfleet United (3rd) and Havant & Waterlooville (10th) with the win coming against Oxford City (4th) - they are unbeaten in five games!  

The Blues travel to Slough Town tomorrow night and will be looking to add to their win's total. Shaq Coulthirst has been in good scoring form for the Essex club with former Tottenham Hotspur player netting three times in their last three games. The 27 year old has made 178 football league appearances for Leyton Orient, Torquay United, Southend United, York City, Wigan Athletic, Peterborough United, Mansfield Town and Barnet. 

They then host table topper's Dorking Wanderers on Saturday - Could they spring a surprise? 

There is huge game tomorrow evening at Cressing Road as Braintree Town welcome Welling United - There are six points between The Wings in 19th and The Iron in 20th so I'd say it's a must win game for the home side who recorded a good 2-4 win at Hampton & Richmond Borough in their last game played. 

Welling United, under the management of Peter Taylor, have just two wins in their last ten league games with one draw and seven defeats. 

At the top of the table Dorking Wanderers have opened up a six point lead thanks to their highly impressive run of winning eight games in a row scoring 30 goals in those games equating to 3.75 goals scored per game. They won 5-1 at home to Ebbsfleet United in front of a packed Meadowbank stadium - 2,142 people saw the game. 

Could we see a team who only a decade and a half ago were playing in the Sussex County League Division Three join non-league's top division for the 22/23 campaign? 

Maidstone United have dropped points in their last two games with draws against Billericay Town and St Albans City. They host Kent rival's Ebbsfleet United tomorrow evening which is a must win game for both sides?

Oxford City saw their manager David Oldfield depart for Vanarama National League side Weymouth last week. He took over his role with The Hoops in March 2020 and leaves the club in a great position in the league. Andy Ballard and Ross Jenkins have been made the caretaker management team at Marsh Lane for the next few weeks. Oldfield made a great start to life with The Terras who are currently in the relegation zone of the Vanarama National League - they drew 1-1 at promotion candidates and FA Cup headline maker's Boreham Wood on Saturday.
