Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

Four wins in five league games have pushed Bromley into the thick of the congested National League promotion race and another three points are on the cards when the Ravens host mid-table Maidstone.

Neil Smith's side are the second-highest scorers in the division and showed off their attacking prowess on Tuesday by winning 7-1 at home to Northern Premier side Workington in an FA Trophy third- round replay.

Bromley have an FA Trophy quarter-final at home to Spennymoor to look forward to in a fortnight but their immediate priority is to nail down a playoff spot in the fifth tier.

They are seventh but could do with a victory over Maidstone before going into a couple of tough away games at Tranmere and Aldershot next Tuesday and Saturday.

Maidstone were playoff contenders earlier in the season but are in danger of getting dragged into the relegation scrap after 13 league games without a win.

They lost a lot of their potency when top scorer Joe Pigott joined AFC Wimbledon in January and look there for the taking at Bromley.

Torquay are masters at avoiding relegation and are eyeing up another escape after winning 3-1 at home to Barrow last Saturday.

The Gulls are still seven points adrift of safety but can edge closer with a win at mid-table Maidenhead, who have posted just two home league victories since September.

Tranmere are getting ever closer to top spot - they are just two points adrift - and can extend their unbeaten run to six with a win at Leyton Orient.

Survival is the main target for Orient, who are five points above the drop zone.
