Is This The Year? – update 13

This was nearly a perfect day. I didn’t see this coming but both Ilkeston and Ashton United lost today, by the solitary goal, away from home. But FC United failed to take full advantage, recording their second successive draw (this time goalless) at Witton Albion. Even with Workington winning today, a single goal for FC would have meant that a win on Tuesday night, at the free-falling Skelmersdale United, would have been enough to win the League! Overall, the position is little changed: FC are still five points clear, but now of Workington (three to play, maximum 9 points possible). Ilkeston drop to third, six points adrift (two to play, 6 points possible, all but mathematically out of it) and Ashton to fourth, eight points behind (four to play, 12 points possible). Five points from the last four games are all FC need. It could still all go down on Tuesday, if Ashton lose again at Ramsbottom and Workington are beaten at home by Trafford. But the odds are that there will be something left to settle next Saturday, at ‘home’ (Stalybridge Celtic’s Bower Fold) to Stamford. I’m not working next Saturday…
