After the Southern Division was decided and Chesham United were crowned as Champions, there is still the matter of deciding the Northern and Midlands Division. Four games on part one of #MatchweekEleven could be pivotal in the final standings.

Key Matchup

Mossley v Runcorn Linnets

The Key Matchup this week comes from the Northern Division where Runcorn Linnets travel to Mossley for a must win game.

Runcorn Linnets currently sit at the top of the Northern Division on 22 points from 10 games. Ossett United are knocking on the door behind them in second on 18 points from 9 games and they missed the opportunity to overtake Runcorn but were defeated by Skelmersdale United on Thursday. When the sides last met in December the points were split after a 2-2 draw and Runcorn will need more than a point on this occasion if they want to stay in poll position.

Mossley once found themselves at top of the Division at Christmas but after a long run of no games and a poor run of form they now sit in fourth place in the Division. However, they have played the least number of games and a win here would take them up to third, above Skelmersdale United.

Northern Division

Radcliffe v Ossett United

Ossett United slipped up in their last fixture and suffered a 1-6 defeat at the hands of Skelmersdale United. They will need a win if they want to keep up with Runcorn Linnets at the top of the division and stay in title race. Radcliffe on the other hand will want to build on their performance in their last game against Brighouse Town and string together some wins as we approach the final stretch of the season.

Brighouse Town v Witton Albion

Brighouse will be confident going into this fixture despite losing their last game in #MatchweekTen. When the sides met in #MatchweekNine Brighouse enjoyed a 1-6 victory with Eliel Zougobo scoring a brace. Witton will look to improve on their recent results and find their second win of the season.

Midlands Division

Mickleover (Black) v Carlton Town

In important fixture in determining the standings of the Midlands Division, these sides are level on nine points, with Carlton Town having a game in hand. A win for Carlton would take them up to fourth in the table and could even set their sights on third depending on Rushall Olympic (Amber)’s results. This is Mickelover (Black)’s final game of the season and they will be wanting to end the campaign on a high.
