This week in Division I saw the same fixtures as last week,
but the away sides now were back at home. Once again, all eyes were on
Mansfield Town who have been the standout side in the Division this year.
Mansfield have now won eight games on the trot. They were
away to Stratford Town who had been the most likely team to challenge Mansfield
but unfortunately for them, they slumped to a 2-0 defeat.
It all seems like it will be a battle for second place this season
as Mansfield are clear favourites to go and win this Division is some style.
For Stratford, they will think hard about the last three
weeks and analyse where has it gone so wrong? They were in second a few weeks
back but after a shock lost to Kidderminster Harriers and two consecutive
losses to Mansfield it sees the side slipping further down the table.
Tamworth have recorded there second win of the season at home
by beating Boldmere St Michaels 2-0. Tamworth will be happy to finally get
another win on the board after last weeks close game away. For Boldmere, the
gap is being closed on second place by Romulus and Stratford.
Romulus managed to record an emphatic 6-1 win away to
Solihull Moors. Romulus have now moved themselves above Stratford into third
place and are clearly looking to challenge Boldmere for second place. Solihull
who had been near the top of the table now find themselves in seventh place.
There was another close game between Kidderminster Harriers
and Stourbridge. Stourbridge have now recorded their second win of the season
by beating the Harriers 4-3 at home. Stourbridge are in sixth position after
two exhilarating victories over the Harriers. The Harriers will now look to
rebuild following these two losses to Stourbridge.
Next week sees the League Cup take place with Mansfield,
Stratford, and Romulus all in action. There is one game in Division I between
Harriers and Solihull.
