National League Permutations This Weekend

Macclesfield Town
Posted:Thu 19 Apr 2018

It all promises to be a busy National League weekend as we reach the closing stages of a dramatic season. Here is what could happen in the division this Saturday!

Championship

Macclesfield Town know that victory at Eastleigh will seal the National League title. A draw would be enough if Tranmere draw with FC Halifax later that afternoon, whilst the Silkmen could even suffer a defeat on Saturday and be crowned champions if Halifax beat Tranmere.

Play-Offs

Macclesfield and Tranmere are the only sides who guaranteed a top seven finish.

Aldershot will book a place in the top seven in if they beat Barrow, whilst Sutton will also seal a play-off place with victory at Ebbsfleet.

The Fleet along with AFC Fylde and Boreham Wood also know that they can book a place in the top seven with victory this weekend although would have to hope that the likes of Wrexham and Dover slip up.

Relegation

Chester and Guiseley’s relegation has already been confirmed from the division, but two teams out of five will also join them in leaving the National League this year.

Torquay are in the most dangerous of positions and will be relegated if they fail to win at Hartlepool this weekend or Barrow beat Aldershot.

Woking could also be relegated this weekend if they draw or lose at Guiseley and Barrow win at Aldershot.

Solihull Moors and Maidstone could also mathematically suffer relegation and will be hoping for positive results at Chester and Fylde respectively to seal their place in the fifth tier next season.
