The top two are both in action tomorrow night in what could be a pivotal evening at the top of the table. Table toppers Luton face a tricky trip to 11th placed Macclesfield, who are one of only three teams to take points off the league leaders at Kenilworth Road this season when they earned a 1-1 draw back in August.

Although Cambridge are at home they face an equally difficult contest when they host third place Alfreton. After picking up a point away at Salisbury on Saturday, Alfreton are only four points off Cambridge who had a rest over the weekend. However, Alfreton have played three more games than the U’s, who will be confident ahead of the clash having won all but one of their home fixtures in the Conference Premier this season.

Grimsby missed the chance to move into playoff places on Saturday when they were held at home to Southport but they have another chance on Tuesday night when they visit relegation strugglers Dartford. The team placed second from bottom have motivation of their own, knowing a win could take them out of the bottom four for the first time since November, after they pic ked up three points on Saturday at Hyde.

Though Tamworth, who are just point above Dartford could spoil the party with a win at home against bottom of the table Hyde. Hyde have picked up only 5 points on the road so anything less than maximum points for Marcus Law’s side will be considered a disappointment.

Elsewhere Salisbury could get their playoff bid back on track with a win at home against Woking, whilst there are midtable clashes between Forest Green and Braintree and Wrexham host Hereford.
