Nobody changed places in the Bottom Ten today, Blyth, King’s Lynn, Peterborough and Southport pulled one point away from Farsley and Darlington who lost. Darlington had today’s worst result as they had Rushall beat them.
The bottom four has not changed, the gap to fifth bottom Darlington is now two points.

The biggest games that can influence who goes down.
I’ve included Banbury, Gloucester or Bishop’s Stortford games as opposing teams should take advantage of them and get three points in those games.
06/04 is going to be a huge weekend with four big games involving eight Bottom Ten teams, 13/04 has three big games involving six Bottom Ten teams.

Southport should more or less guarantee their safety by beating Bishop Stortford on Tuesday night. Hopefully, they will have enough left in the tank to take something from Farsley on Good Friday.
