The weather really did hit the Conference Premier hard this weekend, with only four out of the ten scheduled fixtures going ahead. Though the four games that survived did not disappoint with all eight teams scoring.

Three second half goals for Gateshead saw them claim a vital 3-1 victory over fellow playoff hopefuls Kidderminster. Gateshead have now moved up to fourth and have opened a four point gap between themselves and the Harriers, who are now without a win in four matches.

A superb hat-trick from Ben Tomlinson gave Lincoln a 3-1 over Town who now slip to 9th in the table and three points of the playoff spots. The disappointing result over shadowed what was an impressive performance from debutant Ryan Crowther who got himself on the score sheet with a long range free kick.

Elsewhere, struggling Chester have fallen even closer to the dreaded drop zone, after a 3-1 home defeat to Welling leaves them just two points clear of the relegation spots. Sailsbury claimed a massive three points over 6th place Nuneaton who missed the opportunity to climb into the playoff spots despite taking a 1-0 lead. Goals from James White and Elliott Frear were enough to give Sailsbury a narrow 2-1 and keep themselves within touching distance of the teams fighting for a top five spot.
