This Saturday's matches (6th April)

SAT 06 APR 2019 15:00
Boldmere St Michaels v Loughborough University      
Ilkeston Town v Highgate United                                      
Lye Town v Worcester City                                               
Quorn v Coventry Sphinx                                                 
Romulus v Walsall Wood                                                 
Shepshed Dynamo v AFC Wulfrunians                           
South Normanton Athletic v Stourport Swifts                 
Sporting Khalsa v Coventry United                                   
Wolverhampton Sporting v Long Eaton United 

The two matches that matter are  Ilkeston v Highgate and Romulus v Walsall Wood

Both Ilkeston and Walsall Wood have four games left. Ilkeston have what looks like the easier match this Saturday. Walsall Wood have a tricky game at Romulus and could possibly drop a couple of points. If they do and assuming Ilkeston beat Highgate, it would give Ilkeston the chance to seal promotion by beating Walsall Wood the following Saturday.  

On the assumption that we beat Highgate and Walsall Wood win at Romulus:
If we beat Walsall Wood we will be 6 points ahead of them with just two matches to play
If we draw with Walsall Wood we stay 3 points ahead of them with two matches to play.
If we lose to Walsall Wood we will be level with them with two matches to play.

Tweet by Walsall Wood
"Next up Romulus fc on Saturday where the Wood get reacquainted with some old friends. Both teams have only lost twice in their last twelve games and both need the three points for different reasons. Should be a belter of a game."

Re: This Saturday's matches (6th April)

This is the League's preview of tomorrow's matches :

League leaders, Ilkeston Town welcome Highgate United to The New Manor ground hoping to hold onto their 3 point lead at the top of the table. Gate won the reverse fixture 3-1 in November and The Robins will be eager to extract revenge.
Title challengers Walsall Wood travel to The Vale Stadium to face Romulus with the Roms not yet safe from relegation. The two sides met on the opening day of the season which saw The Wood come out on top 3-2 and another close encounter is anticipated.
3rd placed Sporting Khalsa still have slim hopes of taking the title and they welcome Coventry United to the Aspray Arena. Three wins out of four has lifted United away from any danger and that freedom should provide an open game.
South Normanton Athletic are just one point adrift of safety and they host Stourport Swifts who have won their last three.
Wolverhampton Sporting Community were relegated last weekend after a difficult campaign, and they welcome 11th placed Long Eaton United to Pride Park.
Shepshed Dynamo can move into 4th place if they can take all 3 points from their home game with AFC Wulfrunians. Wulfrunians have lost their last four while Dynamo have had just one defeat in the last 6.
Quorn are eyeing up a top 6 finish and they welcome Coventry Sphinx, one place below them in the table, to Farley Way.
Lye Town welcome Worcester City to The Sports ground for what promises to be a feisty local derby.
Loughborough University sit just one point above the relegation zone, and they travel to 6th placed Boldmere St Michaels who won the reverse fixture 2-1 in December.
