A week of missed opportunities at the top of Division F in the National League Alliance as both Staines Town and Leatherhead missed the chance to move into second following disappointing results.

Martyn Spong’s side knew before kick-off that three points against second place Luton Town Cedars would propel them within touching distance of the league leaders as they would have entered second place for the first time this season but would still be six points behind first.

It wasn’t to be and the game ended goalless on what was a very positive result for Staines as it’s never easy to come to the home of last seasons champions and walk away with all the points.

A positive result when placed in context, Staines remain two points behind second and are now eight points behind Sutton United who are running away at the top.

Staines will be hoping for a comfortable three points in a weeks’ time when they travel to London Tigers Sports Complex to face a London Tigers side who are high in confidence after sending Brentford Griffins to the bottom of Division F with a comprehensive 2-6 victory away from home, another three points against Staines and they could find themselves as high as fifth.

Luton have a game in hand over third placed Staines, to be played next week at Cedars Upper School when they host a struggling Metropolitan Police outfit who have lost all of their previous three games.

Lee Innes’ side suffered defeat again this week when they again conceded several goals as they lost 5-4 away from home against the team who have played the most games this season – Dorking Wanderers.

Both Dorking and the met have the leagues worst defensive records, both conceding 34 times and it definitely showed in this game, both teams struggled defensively with a total of nine goals hitting the back of the net.

As mentioned above, Leatherhead also failed to capitalise on the opportunity to move into second place after they were beaten 3-1 away from home against high flyers Sutton United who have become a formidable force in division F so far, this season and show no signs of slowing down.

And finally, in division F, seventh placed Wealdstone broke away from Kings Langley who currently occupy eighth place with a 3-2 victory in front of their home fans. The gap between the two teams now stands at three points, although Alex Nichols’ men can extend that lead to six points as they have a game in hand.

It’s a quiet week next week as we approach Christmas, with only two fixtures taking place in division F.
