Non-league football: Crunch time for Barrow Town in East Midlands Counties League
Barrow Town can afford precious few mistakes between now and the end of the season.
The Riversiders slipped marginally off the title pace last week when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Graham St Prims.
They visit Gedling Miners Welfare tomorrow, knowing that three points are a must if they are to stay on the tails of Basford United.
Basford host Blaby & Whetstone Athletic, whose slender hopes of the title were almost certainly ended when they were beaten by Holwell Sports.

Two sides who are on the up are Thurnby Nirvana and Holwell Sports.
The former moved into fifth place on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory at Bardon Hill, courtesy of strikes from Ash Day and Reece Morris. They visit Graham St Prims.
Sports, meanwhile, have put together a run of six straight wins to earn a place in the top half of the table.
They will be confident of extending that sequence to seven when they entertain lowly Radford.
Thurnby's latest win edged Aylestone Park down to sixth. They go to Radcliffe in the latest round of fixtures.
Ibstock United's relegation fight was boosted considerably in midweek with a 5-1 romp at neighbours Ellistown, Carl Benson with a double there.
Greenwood Meadows provide the next opposition for United, while Ellistown also travel as they visit Holbrook.
Lutterworth Athletic bowed out of the League Cup on Tuesday when they were beaten 6-3 at Basford.
They visit an Anstey Nomads side who also had a difficult midweek, losing 2-0 at home to St Andrews.
That was an important win for the Andrews, who had taken just one point from their previous six games.
They will need to be at their best for the visit of a Borrowash Victoria side who sit third and are very much in the title hunt.
