Cambridge host Grimsby tomorrow night in what is their game in hand on table toppers Luton. Three points would put them level on points, with only the Hatter’s superior goal difference to separate them. After their disappointing 3-3 draw away at relegation strugglers Dartford they will be determined to pick up maximum points against fifth placed Grimsby.

After not featuring at the weekend, Kidderminster have dropped out of the play-off spots but they will have a tough test away at Hereford to sneak back into the top five. Hereford have been impressive at home of recent and picked up another three points in front of their home support on Saturday with a 1-0 over Salisbury.

Nuneaton could also creep into a playoff position by the end of the evening if they can bounce back from their 3-0 defeat to Luton on Saturday. The Boro host Aldershot, who held Town to a 2-2 draw on Saturday, and a win could take the home side into the top five.

Tamworth could move out of the relegation zone for the first time in 2014 if they avoid defeat away against midtable Wrexham. Tamworth comprehensively beat fellow strugglers Hyde 3-0 on Saturday and will be looking to take that momentum to the Racecourse ground. Elsewhere there is a midtable clash between Braintree and Macclesfield. Braintree’s last three home games have all been postponed so let’s just hope this one actually goes ahead.
