Athletic face biggest test so far against title hopes
Three wins in the last four games has seen Lutterworth Athletic get their EMCL season moving in the right direction.
The league newcomers initially struggled as they took just two points from their first eight matches.
Goals have not been a problem with Danny Laywood in outstanding form, notching 11 so far.
However, Athletic face a real test tomorrow when they host Basford United, currently second and one of this season's fancied sides.

Barrow Town currently sit nine points ahead of Basford having played a couple of games more.
Their start to the season has been exceptional as they have won 11 out of 12 games to date in their unbeaten start.
Bardon Hill Sports are next to challenge that record as they visit Riverside Park tomorrow – no doubt buoyed by last weekend's 4-1 romp over Blaby and Whetstone Athletic in which Marc Schulz grabbed a double.
Blaby look to bounce back from a defeat which prevented them from moving into the top two. They welcome Ellistown to Warwick Road.
Aylestone Park went down to Barrow last week for the second time this season. But there is no cause for alarm at the Linwood as the promoted side still sit comfortably in third place.
They will want to get back on the winning trail as quickly as possible, though, as they prepare for a difficult game at Gedling Miners Welfare. While points would be handy for Park, they are vital for Ibstock United who, a dozen games into the season, have yet to post their first win.
They visit Radford, who are also struggling in the bottom three.
Anstey Nomads could do with a win to lift them out of trouble after a poor start. They face a tough home game against Borrowash Victoria.
St Andrews welcome Thurnby Nirvana to Canal Street, looking to push on in the top half of the table. Thurnby, meanwhile, know that a win over their neighbours could lift them above halfway.
Loughborough University host Studley as they set about maintaining their Midland Alliance promotion push. The Students sit in fourth place ahead of the clash with mid-table Studley.
For Kirby Muxloe and Heather St John's, it is a case of shaking off FA Vase hangovers after they both crashed out last week. Kirby host Heath Hayes, while Heather travel to Alvechurch.
