The Premier League leaders, Cannock, have an early opportunity to make up for last week's failure to beat Guildford before the National League heads for winter hibernation when they play the same side this weekend in one of four games postponed from 24 November.

Cannock, who only drew at Guildford last week and would have lost if either Martin Sampson or David Mathews had been more confident in late breakaways, will welcome the return from suspension of their captain, Kalbir Takher, who should strengthen a midfield which lacked conviction last Sunday.

Teddington, still without Great Britain's Olympic captain, Jason Laslett, upset second placed Southgate last weekend. Southgate will be pleased that Army Major Peter Boxell is back from the Falklands and able to line up at sweeper in place of their player-coach, James Duthie, who dislocated a shoulder in that game.
