Neither side was expected to be in the top two when the campaign began back in August - but both have kept on silencing the doubters, keeping clubs with bigger budgets and seemingly-stronger promotion credentials further down the table.

On Saturday it looked like Needham would take over from Jamie Howell’s men in top spot as they led Staines and Bognor were being held by Enfield. But in the end both the pacesetters drew, keeping Bognor top ahead of their Nyewood Lane tussle on Tuesday night. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
