Six Teams In Contention For Four Play-Off Places


Whilst Hereford continue to top the Southern League South and West, the four teams below them are hoping to ensure they remain in the play-offs positions.

Although Hereford remain ten points ahead of the pack, they haven't yet secured a play-off place let alone the title. One more victory is probably needed given there could be a points deduction after the trouble at Didcot.

Tiverton Town slipped to third place last weekend after they lost at Shortwood. In their place went Taunton who are having a great run of form with another win last night against Shortwood.

Salisbury, currently fourth, are also having a good spell. However Evesham have recently dropped points and are now in fifth position.

Neither Swindon Supermarine (6th) or Mangotsfield (7th) can yet be ruled out.

Tiverton manager Martyn Rogers has been speaking about the play-offs.

"I think Salisbury and Taunton have got some tough games, so there's plenty to play for yet," said Rogers as reported by DevonLive.

"Regardless of whether we finish second, third, fourth or fifth, you're in the play-offs and we've two games to get promotion then.

"But we've got to make sure we consolidate our position in the play-offs, and then worry about what we're going to do when we play who we've got to play, but Taunton and Salisbury are having a great run at the moment.

"Taunton or Salisbury are pushing hard to get into the home position for the play-offs, and they seem to be pulling out the better results."

Hereford have to play both Salisbury and Taunton away in the run-in.
