Comments
Another Darlington win, we are in the playoff chase, let’s see where it goes, but the squad is looking strong, December results have been very encouraging. A few surprise results today elsewhere in the league, a reminder that on any day, a team can rise up.

Going for the league championship, although York is slipping a little back from Kings Lynn
...................... Pd .W D L..W D L...F...A..GD..Pts
01. Kings Lynn..... 22.. 9 3 0.. 5 3 .2. 49 31. 18.. 48
02. York............ 23.. 5 4 2.. 7 4 .1. 34 15. 19.. 44

In the playoff hunt, Darlington’s four straight wins have us here, now to keep the consistency and improve that goal difference. Boston, Darlington, Guiseley and Gateshead 8th – 11th place all won to keep this race exciting, nine teams after five places.
...................... Pd .W D L..W D L...F...A..GD..Pts
03. Brackley....... 21.. 7 4 0.. 4 2 .4. 43 13. 30.. 39
04. Chester ....... 22.. 6 3 2.. 4 5 .2. 40 24. 16.. 38
05. Farsley......... 23.. 6 2 3.. 5 2 .5. 39 30. ..9.. 37
06. Southport..... 23.. 7 2 3.. 4 2 .5. 31 23. ..8.. 37
07. Spennymoor... 22.. 7 1 2.. 2 6 .4. 38 28. 10.. 34
08. Boston......... 20.. 6 2 0.. 4 2 .6. 32 22. 10.. 34
09. Darlington.... 22.. 7 2 3.. 3 1 .6. 27 30. .-3.. 33
10. Guiseley....... 22.. 5 2 4.. 4 3 .4. 37 32. ..5.. 32
11. Gateshead.... 20.. 6 2 3.. 2 4 .3. 27 22. ..5.. 30

The bottom half, teams that look too strong to be relegated, but too inconsistent to move towards the playoff group. Worrying for Hereford is they have fallen to the bottom of this group.
...................... Pd .W D L..W D L...F...A..GD..Pts
12. Telford.........22.. 4 3 5.. 4 2 .4. 32 34. .-2.. 29
13. Leamington... 22.. 5 3 3.. 3 2 .6. 35 38. .-3.. 29
14. Altrincham.... 19.. 6 2 1.. 1 4 .5. 32 26. ..6.. 27
15. Kidderminster 23.. 3 2 7.. 4 3 .4. 31 34. .-3.. 26
16. Alfreton....... 22.. 4 2 4.. 4 0 .8. 32 37. .-5.. 26
17. Hereford...... 23.. 3 6 2.. 3 1 .8. 25 37. -12.. 25

Avoiding relegation, a big win today for Curzon Ashton.
...................... Pd .W D L..W D L...F...A..GD..Pts
18. Curzon Ashton 22.. 5 2 5.. 1 3 .6. 23 32. .-9.. 23
19. Gloucester.... 21.. 4 3 3.. 2 2 .7. 28 40. -12.. 23
20. Kettering...... 21.. 3 3 4.. 2 3 .6. 29 36. .-7.. 21

Hoping to avoid relegation, now Kettering is the team to catch.

BigDave,
thanks for the update, I am going to build out the top 11, who they still have to play against each other home and away, so this game will be noted under both teams. If it's at Kings Lynn, I'm going with a home win, 1-0 or 2-1.

York & Spennymoor are both on shocking runs & it shows how quickly things can change. Thanks for the updates Ginge, the club should pay you to stay, as you've brought us good luck. I find it funny that people on here, were saying what a tough fixture list we had over the festive period & that we'd be lucky to get a point, how wrong they were!!!
