There was one huge game last night in the Vanarama National League South, and tonight we have another.
Havant & Waterlooville can ensure East Thurrock’s stay at the top of the league lasts only 24 hours.
The Rocks beat Chelmsford City 2-1 last night to kick the Clarets off top spot.
Havant can do the same but St Albans City have designs of taking first place. If they win well at Clarence Park and results go their way the Saints could return to the summit.

Truro City have had a great start and also have eyes of closing the gap.
Can Lee Hodges’ White Tigers keeping it going? They will start to believe they can earn a promotion place if they beat Chelmsford City to make it five wins in a row.
Dartford are going about their business quietly, and so are Eastbourne Borough.
A great match is in prospect at Princes Park this evening that’s for sure and Sports manager Jamie Howell said: “There’s not many more difficult places to go in the league right now.
“But we go to Dartford with confidence. It’s got the makings of a good game.”
Whitehawk must find that first win sooner rather than later. If it comes at Welling United tonight, then their season get get up and running.

Improving Hemel Hempstead have a big home match against Bognor Regis and their manager Dean Brennan knows it’s an important match.
“We have won our last two games and we just need to keep on winning and we’ll see where it takes us,” the Vauxhall Road boss said.
“But we’re playing well and it would be great to make in three in a row tonight.”
Oxford City welcome Weston-Super-Mare who are much improved – and their manager Marc McGregor thinks his side should have won at Chelmsford City on Saturday.
There is an Essex derby at Concord Rangers and as Braintree Town pay the Aspect Arena a visit.
Both teams have different ambitions and after losing at Hemel last time out Bradley Quinton is demanding a reaction from the Iron this evening.
