National League Final Day Permutations

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Wed 25 Apr 2018

We look at what could happen in the National League this weekend. 



As we all know, Macclesfield Town have secured the National League title and will be playing in League Two next year. The Silkmen will be presented with the title after Saturday’s game against Dagenham & Redbridge.


Tranmere have guaranteed second place in the table and a place in the semi-final of the new play-off format. Aldershot and Sutton have also guaranteed a place inside the top seven and meet on Saturday with Sutton knowing a draw would be enough for them to guarantee third place and a passage straight into the semi-final.

Five more sides are competing for the final three play-off places. Ebbsfleet only need a point at Torquay to guarantee a top seven finish. Fylde know a draw at Wrexham would also be enough for them providing a remarkable swing in goal difference.

Boreham Wood are in the final play-off place and probably need to beat Guiseley to guarantee a top seven finish.  Should they drop points, both Bromley, who face Maidenhead away, and Dover, who travel to Woking know victory could take them in to the top seven. Bromley are in the better position due to their superior goal difference.


Torquay, Guiseley and Chester have all had their relegation from the National League confirmed. The final place will be decided on Saturday with both Woking and Barrow in danger.

Barrow know a win at home to Chester would seal their safety. The Cumbrian side could even afford to lose to Chester and survive if Woking fail to beat Dover.

Woking know that they must win on Saturday and hope Barrow drop points.
