League leaders Hollands & Blair are in cup action once again this Saturday when they entertain Sutton Athletic at Star Meadow in their Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League Challenge Trophy Quarter-Final Second Leg.
Blair hold a slender one goal lead from the first leg thanks to skipper Stuart West's second-half winner.
Basement outfit Crockenhill will be looking to build on last weekend's first win of the season, 3-0 at home to Eltham Palace, when
Glebe visit Wested Meadow. Just last month Glebe won the first meeting 5-0 on the 3G at Bishop Justus School.
Also down at the bottom end Meridian VP entertain Lewisham Borough just three days after playing each other in the KIL trophy which ended in a 4-0 success for Boro but this time there are three important league points up for grabs.
There is a big game at the top end of the table where Lydd Town have the opportunity to take over at the top because as stated above current leaders Hollands & Blair are playing in the cup. However they face a tough battle against fourth-placed Orpington at Green Court Road. When the two teams met back in November goals from Steve Harris and Gary Lockyer helped Dave Smith's side to a narrow 2-1 victory at the Lindsey Field.
Having already lost three times to Kent Football United this season, Bearsted will be hoping for better when the two sides meet again at Otham Sports Club. United won 2-1 at home on the opening day of the league season back in August before beating the Bears 6-2 on aggregate in the KIL trophy.
After losing last Saturday both Seven Acre & Sidcup and Fleet Leisure will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they meet at Oxford Road. Fleet won 3-1 in the game between the sides at Rede Court Road back in September.
Finally this week Bridon Ropes will be hoping to complete a 'double' for the season when they travel to play Rusthall having won 3-1 at Charlton Park Lane. It could well be a tight encounter though as the Rustics go into the fixture on the back of four straight wins.
Lewisham Borough ended a four game losing streak in spectacular style by scoring four unanswered second-half goals
against Meridian VP in this Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League Challenge Trophy Quarter-Final Second Leg at the Ladywell
Arena and complete a 6-4 aggregate victory.
Meridian had held the advantage after winning the first leg 4-2 but after Kieron McMahon had broken the deadlock for 'Boro they went on to win comfortably as Tristan Toney (70 & 76 mins) and Johan Ebanks (90 + 3) also found the net.
