Promotion rivals

With only 8 more Saturday's in the season we are going to focus on our promotion rivals each matchday.  We only have 9 more games remaining in the league but all of our promotion rivals have far more games then us. 

Thisid week sees Pickering play at home to Harrogate Railway Athletic.  On paper a game which we would expect Pickering to win, but Harrogate are fighting for their lives at the other end of the table so a potential banana skin for the Pikes.

Pontefract have a trip to Albion Sports on Wednesday night in another tough test for their championship ambitions.  A game again we would normally expect on current form that Pontefract would win.

Also on Wednesday, Handsworth have the Sandy Lane derby against Worksop in a game which could go either way.  This is Handsworth only game in hand and The Bulls will be 7 points ahead of them if Handsworth achieve all three points on Wednesday. 

Not long to go and we would expect ups and downs along the way and now the beast from the east has disappeared lets hope we can get some games on.
