Torquay United are now locked in a fascinating race for promotion from the National League and it is going to make our predicta competition a tough one this weekend.
The Gulls travel to Boreham Wood for the televised game on BT Sport and crucial Gary Johnson’s men can find a return to winning ways.
Hartlepool emerged from Plainmoor last weekend and they welcome Eastleigh on Saturday, while Sutton United travel to an unpredictable King’s Lynn outfit.
The first cup final of the season will see Portsmouth take on Salford City in the Papa John’s Trophy at Wembley.
In the Premier League, an impressive Chelsea team visit Leeds United for an intriguing clash at Elland Road, while struggling West Brom simply must win at Crystal Palace to keep their survival hopes alive.

LEEDS UTD v CHELSEA - Chelsea win 2-1
Not a Hunter or Harris in sight, so this will be 90mins of 21st Century total football - Chelsea to win it.
CRYSTAL PALACE v WBA - Palace win 3-1
Diagne has arrived too late to save the Baggies, Zaha is back and Palace weren't 4-1 bad at Spurs - home win.
PORTSMOUTH v SALFORD CITY - Pompey win 2-0
Even without their fans, Pompey can rise to a Wembley occasion and spoil the day for Neville, Scholes & Co.
BOREHAM WOOD v TORQUAY UNITED - A draw 1-1
Much depends on which Wood team turn up, but the Gulls are happier on the road at the moment and must not lose.
KING'S LYNN TOWN v SUTTON UNITED - Sutton win 2-0
Lynn up one week and down the next, but Sutton will be too strong and pacy in attack for the part-timers.
HARTLEPOOL UNITED v EASTLEIGH - A draw 1-1
A big game for Play-Off hopefuls Eastleigh after a home slip against Bromley, so this one might turn into a stalemate.
