We all know the story of Easter Holiday. Shot dead on Friday, sent on Sunday, is basically how it goes. Religion and football are not really issues that you see in the same sentence that were not one of those ads you see garbage at about the World Cup outside the church ("Jesus saves, but God knocks in the rebound.") However, in the case of a relegation battle from the Blue Square South house 48 hours a long time in football with so much change you need to messenger two to keep you informed of what's going on.
For lunch on Good Friday the situation was complicated to say the least. Continued for the first time Boreham Wood sudden form a good start after his victory over Eastleigh to end the playing of the hopes, and left them all but safe in the Division for another season. Then Thurrock, who was on the run terrible shape and flow away to the United nailed almost to the playoffs. The wings were cruising to victory and one to none, with LLF in attendance for moral support when Thurrock earnt 90 minutes from a penalty kick, which duly converted.
So it came to games on Saturday. The Bishop's Stortford banking three points at home to already doomed city of St. Albans, who won easily 4-0. Maidenhead United, who were killed and buried three weeks ago, but since they won 13 out of 15 possible points since losing to Lewis in early April, he drew with Dorchester Town, themselves by no means out of the woods. And then to Louis. Expect a few from outside the pan for them to get anything away at Havant and Waterlooville, but turned in the copy again, and expand their unbeaten run to four games and make things very interesting too for the last week of the season.
So tomorrow, as well as all Holiday Easter eggs eaten, and people's thoughts will turn to a royal wedding or at least a long weekend because of that, there will be some players in the case of very nervous, managers and fans come 03:00. Undoubtably the biggest game in the dripping pan, where Bishop's Stortford host Lewis. Dorchester Town and Thurrock to host both pursuers in the form of Farnborough and Ebbsfleet United respectively, while Maidenhead United do not play.
