Round Up 41: National League South

By David Hamlet

Five teams can still claim the final play-off spot

“Wealdstone could snatch the final play-off slot”

Matches 11: Home Wins 5; Draws 2; Away Wins 4 - goals 33

It was certainly an exciting penultimate round of games in this season's competition.

Slough Town looked well placed to launch their play-off challenge when they netted a 90th minute penalty to take the lead, however their opponents equalised in the 5th minute of extra time to severely dent Rebels chances.

However, Billericay Town conceded two goals in the 88th and 90th minutes to lose all the points, making for an exciting last round with no less than five teams, Rebels included, aiming to get that final play-off place.

5,351 saw champions Torquay United defeated at home to a 90th minute goal that keeps Hungerford Towns hopes of survival alive.

Other gates that exceed 1000+ were at Bath City (1,164), Dartford (1,325) and Dulwich (2,648)..

Woking and Welling United have qualified for the play-off semi-finals, while Chelmsford City, Bath City and Concord Rangers (thanks to their goal average) are three of the play-off quarter final teams.

Billericay Town are still in 6th place with 65 points. The chasing four being St. Albans City and Dartford with 64 points; Wealdstone with 63 points and Slough Town with 62 points.

At the foot of the table both Weston-s-Mare and East Thurrock United won, however, despite their fine win East Thurrock (like Weston) are relegated, given Hungerford's late winner.

Hungerford Town need a point at home to East Thurrock next week to condemn Truro City.

Gloucester City's and Eastbourne Borough's results save them from the drop.

Results:
Bath City 1 v 0 Oxford City; Chelmsford City 0 v 3 Wealdstone; Concord Rangers 2 v 1 St. Albans City; Dartford 2 v 1 Billericay Town; Dulwich Hamlet 1 v 3 Woking; East Thurrock United 4 v 1 Welling United; Gloucester City 3 v 2 Chippenham Town; Hampton & Richmond Borough 2 v 2 Truro City; Hemel Hempstead Town 0 v 2 Weston-s-Mare; Slough Town 1 v 1 Eastbourne Borough; Torquay United 0 v 1 Hungerford Town
