00:00 / 03:06

It's going to be interesting to see what happens this weekend in the 5th tier of English football because some sides are not playing due to the FA Cup second round matches that are taking place.

First game I'm going to look at is AFC Fylde against Hartlepool United. Last weekend was rather disappointing for both teams. AFC Fylde were 3-1 up against Dorking Wanderers but could only draw 3-3 after conceding late on, while for Hartlepool United they lost convincingly against Bromley.

John Askey promised that his side would show a reaction against AFC Fylde - It's going to be interesting to see whether that's the case or not. I've got a feeling that this game has a draw written all over it, and the way that both teams are defending at present do feel that both teams to score is a rather safe bet as well.

A team that have really impressed last weekend was Altrincham. They gained an emphatic win against Solihull Moors and take on Dorking Wanderers.

Dorking played that crazy game against AFC Fylde and I think they are going to lose against an Altrincham.
team that have real momentum behind them with some impressive transfers coming in over the past couple of weeks.

There are teams that are aiming for the play off places come the end of the season and if they can keep up their form based on last weekend, they've got a real chance of securing a top seven finish by the end of the campaign.

Another game I'm going to look at is Kidderminster Harriers who are taking on Ebbsfleet United

Both teams thought they gained something from last weekend Kidderminster with 2-0 down away from home against Oxford City with their backs against the wall, they were able to gain a 2-2 draw Ross Penn saying that his side did gain something from that.

Well for Ebbsfleet United they gained an emphatic 4-1 win away from home against Oldham Athletic. Dominic Poleon was able to get a goal in that game. He showed incredible form and they'll be hoping that he can maintain some form for the next few games as well. I've got a feeling that Poleon getting the first goal is a good bet here and I also think that it will be Ebbsfleet United that gain all three points.

The final game to look at then is Southend United against Wealdstone. Both teams really happy with how the last few weeks have gone, Wealdstone gaining that win against Barnett. The Big Derby win 98th minute winner in that match and for Southend United, a great win against Chesterfield and then a good point away from home against Gateshead, and I do feel the unbeaten run for both teams based on last weekend will be continuing. Gotta feeling that Wealdstone will be infuriating Southend and being able to gain a draw.

I'm gonna say as well I feel that this game could be a rather tight one. I feel like this could be a goalless draw.

Well, let's see what happens in the 5th tier this weekend. Plenty of action to take place.
