AFC Wimbledon gave hope of a table climb this week with a
comprehensive 6-1 victory over Fulham (Coulsdon) with the latter side having
now conceded fifteen goals in two games.
They’ll be looking over their shoulder as they sit
precariously in eighth place with all four teams having games in hand, with
ninth placed Hampton & Richmond Borough having a potentially potent four
games over their competitors.
For the Dons, it sees them soar seven points above foot-of-the-table
Corinthian-Casuals who do have one game in hand after another postponement at
home to Borough this week.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, Havant &
Waterlooville leapfrogged back to the summit of the division with a 3-1 away
result over fifth placed Carshalton Athletic seeing them taking their goal
tally to exactly 60 averaging upwards of four goals a game, the form of
Someone who will believe that not to be the case is second
placed Aldershot, who saw their postponed game against Kingstonian allow their
rivals to catch up and now sit on identical points to the Hawks, with only
three goals separating the sides.
And Kingstonian have this week withdrawn from the
competition, with their playing records being abolished. We wish them all the
best and thank them for their involvement in this years competition.
Staying with the top of the table, third placed Eastleigh
Whites saw off mid-table Tooting & Mitcham United 3-0 to move to 30 points,
but with two games in hand over the top two who are on 36 and on the same goal
difference as the leaders, the Whites could easily find themselves sitting
pretty at the top soon if they keep up their momentum.
The final result of the week was a dominating 5-0 victory by
Woking over Whyteleafe.
Next week sees only one fixture on Valentines Day between AFC
Wimbledon and Eastleigh Whites, with both teams in impressive form of late.
I doubt they’ll be any roses or teddy bears passed around in
