This Saturday's matches (24 Nov)

Saturday is Ilkeston's 19th league match after which they will have completed half of their fixtures.
The match against Dunkirk is one we would hope to win although nothing can be taken for granted. Dunkirk's last three results have been a 2-2 draw with Coventry United, a 0-1 defeat against Sporting Khalsa and a 2-0 win against Quorn. 

There are two important fixtures this weekend which will involve the four teams immediately below Ilkeston : Sporting Khalsa (4th) v Walsall Wood (3rd)  and  Worcester City (5th) v Westfields (2nd).
So a win for Ilkeston will see us strength our position at the top as at least two of the 4 teams below us will drop points.

Here is the full fixture list :
          Boldmere SM v AFC Wulfrunians
          Highgate Utd v South Normanton Athletic
          Ilkeston Town v Dunkirk
          Lye Town v Loughborough University
          Quorn v Romulus
          Shepshed Dynamo v Long Eaton United
          Sporting Khalsa  v Walsall Wood
          Stourport Swifts v Coventry United
          Wolverhampton Sporting v Coventry Sphinx
          Worcester City v Westfields

Intersting to note that Dunkirk have registered 68 players so far this season.  That compares with our 31.
Dunkirk have not yet recorded an away win. Their away record is P8, W0, D2, L6, F8, A21, Points 2.
Dunkirk's top scorer is Romello Nangle with 7 goals.

If Ilkeston win and Westfields and Walsall Wood lose we will have a seven point lead at the top. But probably the best results for us would be if the four teams below us draw and each drop two points .
