As the heat basks down on a sunny Bob Lucas Stadium there is sure to be a heated atmosphere in a crucial bank holiday fixture between the Terras and the visitors from Wealdstone.

Wealdstone travel down to the south coast sitting pretty at the top of the table with 15 points from a possible 18 and coming off the back of an impressive 3-1 home victory against Hungerford. Their only adversity so far was on the 6th August, the first midweek round of fixtures, succumbing to a 1-0 defeat to Dulwich Hamlet.
