The weather caused havoc in the Conference Premier this weekend with seven fixtures falling victim to the heavy rain which has hit the country. Luton’s home game with Tamworth was one of the games that were postponed, preventing the league leaders from potentially opening up a six point gap at the top.

Out of the four games that went ahead only two produced goals but the two that did really did not disappoint. Second from bottom Dartford picked up an invaluable three points when they visited midtable Wrexham on Saturday with a hard fought 2-1 win. Goals from Andy Pugh and Elliot Bradbrook helped the visitors claim only their third win on the road this season which has left them only two points from safety.

However, the misery for the only team below them, Hyde, continued on Saturday after they conceded a last minute goal to lose 4-3 against Lincoln. The side lying bottom of the table have only won once in the Conference Premier and lead 3-2 with 15 minutes to go but late goals from Ben Tomlinson and Tom Miller stole the win for Lincoln at Ewen Fields. The three points has taken Lincoln further clear of the drop zone, David Holdsworth men are now 11 points clear of 21st placed Southport.

At the other end of the table third placed Alfreton earned a point away at playoff hopefuls Salisbury with a 0-0, whilst Grimsby missed the chance to move into the play-off places after a stalemate with Southport.
