St Albans City v Weymouth (National League South)
St Albans have won both of their last games, winning 3-1 away to Slough and 6-0 away to Hampton & Richmond. They now bring it back to Clarence Park as they face bottom of the league Weymouth. Tafari Moore, Zane Banton and Kyran Wiltshire have all been on top form, all scoring braces last Tuesday – they’ll be looking to knock a few goals here against weaker opposition. Shaun Jeffers has also been prolific this season, scoring 9 goals and leaving him 3rd in the league for goals scored. Defensively they have also been brilliant this season, conceding the 3rd least goals so far. If other results go their way, a win here could leave them 5th in the table.
Weymouth have lost both of their last two league games, one at home to Farnborough and one away to a strong Dartford side. Their last game saw them get a draw against League Two side Wimbledon to take it to a replay. It is arguable that this will leave a lot of their players fatigued against strong opposition. Their win against Slough at the end of October currently remains their only win so far – with a record of 1 win, 2 draws and 11 losses. St Albans will be incredibly disappointed if they don’t pick up all three points here. They need the win, they’re on form and have the home advantage playing arguably the worst team in the league. Their strong defensive efforts this season alongside an on form attack should comfortably allow them to control the game.
Worthing v Oxford City (National League South)
Worthing have been on some poor form recently although you could argue that this is only down to making small mistakes – not bad performances. They went unbeaten for the first 10 games of the season, although since then they’ve only won one in six. Unsurprisingly, Worthing have the most draws this season with a total of 8 in 16. They’ve had a range of goal scorers so far this season, possibly missing a prolific striker to turn the draws into wins.
Oxford have had better recent form than Worthing, although this still leaves them 2 points behind them due to a slower start. Klaidi Lolos is their top scorer so far, although in a similar way to Worthing they have had an array of goalscorers. They’ve only lost one of their last 7 although now go away to a Worthing side that understand the importance of this game. If Oxford win this, they’ll go one point ahead of Worthing with a game in hand. Both teams have very even records this season, being only a couple of points apart and having scored an equal 23 goals so far. Oxford have conceded three less but have a game in hand.
I feel as though both teams to score is safe here. Worthing have had both teams scoring in 7 of their last 9 games and Oxford have had both teams scoring in 6 of their last 8. They’re very evenly matched teams that will both be looking for three points. Once a goal is scored in this game, both sides should open up.
Scarborough Athletic v King’s Lynn Town (National League North)
This fixture is of mass importance for both sides. If other results go their way, a Scarborough win would allow them to go from 4th to 2nd and a King’s Lynn win could push them to the top of the table. They sit only 2 points apart and will both be chasing all three points here. Scarborough have had a set of scrappy results recently, winning only 2 of their last 5 and taking a disappointing 2-0 loss to 8th place Alfreton. If they had managed to turn their draws into wins, they would have more safety in this fixture.
Michael Coulson has been prolific this season, leading their top goalscorers and will certainly be looking to get onto the scoresheet here – I really wouldn’t be shocked if he does. Conveniently, Scarborough have scored the most goals this season (29) closely followed by King’s Lynn (28.)
The Linnets will come away here looking for all three points, most likely playing aggressively with bundles of momentum. A lot of that momentum arises from their 1-0 away win at the weekend to League Two side Doncaster. It may be argued that they’ll be fatigued from this, but Scarborough also had to play in a difficult tie against Leamington.
Both teams to score should be likely here. Both sides know they can win this and it’ll be huge for whoever does. King’s Lynn are the better side here although Boro have the home advantage and a more prolific goalscorer in Coulson.
