A win tonight could put Dunstable Town back in the play-off places, after a slighlty turbulent spell which has seen three postponements and two losses out of their last five games.

The Blues travel to 10th placed Leamington FC who are looking to make up ground on the play-off places, with the Brakes eight points behind Dunstable, but have two games in hand.

Dunstable boss Tony Fontenelle had this to say: "They [Leamington] are probably another one where their league position isn't a fair one, in part due to the league games they have in hand.

"They are a strong skillful organised side and they are going to be a very difficult side to beat."

The Blues will have to take care of one of the Southern Premier League's top scorers, Ben Mackey, who has scored 12 goals in the domestic competition this season.

Fontenelle said: "He is a very prolific goal scorer, a very strong player that should maybe playing a level higher than what he is.

"He is a threat we are aware of and we shall deal with him as best as we can."

With Dunstable seemingly having every other game called off due to bad weather recently, the table has become congested near the top.

Dunstable currently sit in 7th with 52 points, they are only four points ahead of 11th placed Biggleswade Town, but only five behind 3rd placed Redditch United.

Fontenelle said: "This league is so tight, every game is important, we need that little bit of breathing space which we aren't getting at the moment, with the last two results it's making life that little bit more difficult for us."

The Blues take on Leamington Spa tonight (Tuesday 23rd) at the New Windmill Ground, with a 7:45pm kick-off.
