After a two week break with last weeks fixtures being called off due to heavy snow it was back to business for teams in Division I. Four games were scheduled to take place this week but only three went ahead after Stratford Towns game with Romulus was postponed.

League leaders Mansfield Town were back in action, but they slumped to a 4-2 defeat away to Tamworth. The top of the table is too close to call and with another defeat Mansfield will need wins under their belt to clinch the division after looking like runway victors earlier on this  season.

For Tamworth they are in fourth place with seven points separating third. It seems that Tamworth will be engaged in a battle this season alongside Stratford and Solihull Moors.

With Mansfield’s slip up, this represented an excellent opportunity for Boldmere St Michaels to go top of the division but like Mansfield they were defeated 4-2 away to Chasetown who are now off the bottom. Boldmere will be kicking themselves by not winning against lower ranked opposition and this could cost them towards the end of the season.

At the start of the season, Chasetown were struggling to get wins but with two games won they’ll surely want to go up the table as we reach the last couple of months of the season with their nearest rivals being Stourbridge who are two points above them.

In the weeks other game, Stourbridge were at home to Solihull Moors, but it was day to forget for Stourbridge as they were hammered 6-1 to Solihull. With Chasetown mounting pressure, Stourbridge will need to be careful not to avoid hammerings like this.

Solihull are locked in a battle for fourth place with Tamworth, so it will be very interesting to see how the battle develops between them and Tamworth as the seasons winds down.

Next week’s fixtures see Romulus back in action at home to Stourbridge with Kidderminster Harriers also returning to face Stratford. Chasetown will be at home against Tamworth and Boldmere are at home against Solihull. Both Romulus and Boldmere know that next week’s fixtures represents a chance to replace Mansfield at the top with Mansfield not playing next week.
