In the Premier Division Borehamwood have lost each of their last eight games, and home defeats to Enfield (3-1) and Sutton United (2-1), followed by a New Year's Day loss at Grays Athletic (3-2), must have sections of the Broughinge Road faithful worried.

However, management pair Micky Engwell and Lee Harvey have already made four signings, and all are likely to start at St Albans City on Saturday, January 5.

As D-Day approaches for St Albans City in the shape of a High Court hearing on Tuesday, January 8, the club's supporters turned up in strength on Saturday as 760 fans packed in to Clarence Park for the 0-0 draw with struggling Bedford Town.

In Division One, Steve Hale's winner for Northwood against Worthing on Saturday extended his scoring run to ten games, but for his manager, Tony Choules, the three points was the greater prize.

Other chances were created, but one goal was always enough, and maintains momentum ahead of Saturday's (January 5) crunch fixture at Ford United, who are a place above them.

In Division One, it is back to business for Berkhamsted Town as they rediscovered the habit with a 3-0 victory at Tilbury.

This performance will not go unnoticed by the leading pack, one of whom will test the substance of Berko's revival on Saturday as Steve Bateman takes his team to third placed Great Wakering Rovers.

Elsewhere, Hemel Hempstead Town came from 2-0 and 3-1 behind to earn a home draw with second-from-bottom Wivenhoe Town. They will look to build on that when Molesey visit Vauxhall Road at the weekend.

A second successive 3-0 defeat, this time at Dorking on Saturday, has brought an end to Tring Town's revival in Division Three. Manager Howard Cowley will want to nip this descent in the bud at Edgware Town on Saturday, when at least two of last week's absentees are set to return.
