Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Bank Holiday Weekend is here and there’s a bumper amount of National League fixtures coming up, starting tonight..!

Macclesfield Town are set to host Dover Athletic for some Friday night football. It will have felt like a long week for the Silkmen after they were well beaten at Gateshead while Dover will want to continue their good start having taken nine points so far.

Saturday’s fixtures begin with a LIVE match on BT Sport, coverage starting from 12pm. It’s a Yorkshire derby between FC Halifax Town and Guiseley – both sides go into the game off the back of a win last week.

League leaders Sutton United will be visited by Maidstone United at Gander Green Lane in what has been dubbed ‘El Plastico’. The Stones are all too familiar with Sutton’s 3G pitch what with playing their home games on one as well.

Chester were the unlucky losers to Sutton as they went top of the table. They head to Aldershot Town whose unbeaten run came to an end at Boreham Wood last week. Free-scoring Wood sit fourth and make the long trip to Micky Mellon’s Tranmere Rovers, who suffered their second defeat of the season at Eastleigh.

The Spitfires get on the road to Leyton Orient. The O’s comfortably saw-off Woking last time out and will want to maintain their 100% home record.

Barrow manager Paul Cox resigned from his position on Thursday having won only one of their opening five matches. The Bluebirds will be visited by Maidenhead United.

Neil Smith’s Bromley have had an excellent start and sit second. They head to another unbeaten side, Dagenham and Redbirdge, who have drawn their last three games.

Three home wins for Gateshead has bumped their points tally to nine but now they need to repeat the trick away from the Gateshead International Stadium at unbeaten Ebbsfleet United.

Hartlepool United are still yet to record a National League win and they go up against a side also waiting for a three-point haul, AFC Fylde.

Wrexham sit just above their opponents Woking, both sides have picked up two wins, while the two clubs at the bottom Torquay United and Solihull Moors go head-to-head.
