The Runners & Riders This Weekend

The Runners & Riders This Weekend

Luton Town find themselves rooted to the foot of the table, after being deducted 10 points for going into administration. They have a tough game at home to Southend in 5th. Although the Hatters home form has been good, the deduction will hit morale and could dent the confidence. A sad state of affairs, but they are promotion rivals, so the sympathy stops there.

Top of the pile Carlisle entertain Brighton in what could prove a difficult game for the Cumbrians. Brighton have done well so far this season and have managed to stay in touch with the chasing pack. The same can be said of Carlisle, who are top on merit. Joint top Orient travel to the Galpharm to play stuttering Huddersfield. The O's looked to be hitting a dodgy spell, but have managed to stay in touch and are worthy of their lofty position. No disrespect to them, but they will surely fade soon, as they have no depth to the squad. They really must be pinching themselves at their lofty position.

Onto Lucky Leeds and they have what should be on paper an easy three points away at second from bottom Cheltenham on Sunday. I'm pinning all my hopes on the bubble bursting in Gloucester. It's about bloody time it did. Hopefully, the midweek FA Cup defeat at the hands of Hereford will be the catalyst to start the rot. For the luckiest team in the Football League, I hope this is the day when they say 'this is where it all went wrong.'

Swans fans will be glad they have a game on a Saturday afternoon for a change, after a run of Friday night games. They currently sit in 6th and have a tricky game away at 8th placed Tranmere. Only three points separate the top six, so a win is vital to stay in touch. An improving Bournemouth are at long last out of the drop zone and face dodgy Oldham at home.

In other games, Millwall play struggling Yeovil. Gills face Hartlepool, Swindon play Brizzle Rovers, Port Vale entertain Donny and the Cobblers face Walsall.
