WITH leaders Cannock unlikely to come unstuck at Hounslow, tomorrow's main National League Premier attraction will be the meeting of second- placed Canterbury and Southgate, three points behind and third.

Canterbury have not looked back since beating Cannock 6-1 last November, having scored 50 goals in their last 10 League games.

The Welsh coach, David Bunyan, has moulded a fine attacking side around the experience of the Wales captain, David Hacker, and the evergreen Sean Kerly. Their young trio of Stuart Humphries, David Matthews and Paul Wicken can be expected to give the Southgate defence a torrid afternoon.

Chelmsford will be without their captain, Darren Whitford, for their key Division One game against Brooklands, who lead the table by one point and will be hoping to repeat their success of last weekend when they beat Surbiton 4-1.
