Eastleigh Whites seized control of the Division D crown with
their game in hand meaning the title is still in their hands if they continue
their blistering form, as long as Harry Kane isn’t claiming it as his.
The Spitfires grinded out a routine 1-0 victory against
Carshalton Athletic to mean that, with the season coming to a close, if they
keep winning there is no way they can be caught.
A team with something to say about that is Aldershot Town.
The Shot’s will need a slip up from their rivals to finish top
but are certainly putting a strong case forward for their rights for the prize
with some serious firepower in the ranks.
This week it was another big victory to add to the
collection, beating AFC Wimbledon 7-1 courtesy of goals from Tony Okoromadu, Ryan
Davis, Harry Wickens combining with a brace from Brian Galach and George Root,
making it Galach’s sixth goal in two games; not a bad return.
Coach Josh Gallagher is hopeful of a strong end to the season
for his side, and tweeted:
“A good result today!
“The boys performed well in hot conditions!
“Two big games coming up…. one last push!”
Elsewhere, Tooting & Mitcham United got one over on their
mid-table rivals of Hampton & Richmond Borough with 5-2 sending them to
fifth whilst Borough sit just behind.
The result was similar when Whyteleafe played Fulham
(Coulsdon), with 5-3 in Whyteleafe’s favour allowing them to recover from the
16 goals conceded from last week and climb away from bottom of the table.
This unfavourable position is currently occupied by
Corinthian-Casuals, who were condemned to their 12th loss of the
campaign as they played Woking, with 3-1 being the score line.
Their four games in hand could still be enough to save them
from finishing last, however with next weeks game being against Eastleigh
Whites the task is a daunting one for the Casuals.
And this is the only game happening next week, allowing sides
to gather their heads and focus on a strong finish to the season.
The weather is warming up and so is the action here in
