Non-League preview: Kingstonian look for return to league form after cup penalty heroics

Kingstonian hope to build on their cup success by winning in the Ryman Premier League for the first time in three games against Burgess Hill Town tomorrow.

Tommy Williams’ men made it through to the final of the Alan Turvey trophy with a penalty shoot-out victory over Wingate & Finchley on Monday, and will face Faversham Town next month.

But before that, they need to get their promotion challenge back on track after two draws and a defeat from their last three matches.

However, they now face three consecutive home games, with Harrow Borough and Brentwood Town due to visit after Burgess Hill.

In the same division, Metropolitan Police are also seeking to end a poor run of form when they host seventh-placed Enfield Town.

The Met have slumped to 14th in the league after a five-game winless streak, which includes Tuesday’s 3-1 loss at relegation-threatened Staines Town.

In Division One South, Walton & Hersham face a tough task as they travel to promotion-chasing Herne Bay.

Walton’s poor run continued last week as they lost 3-1 at to Hythe Town, stretching their losing run to four as they sit 21st in the table.

Meanwhile, their division rivals Tooting & Mitcham Borough travel to Ramsgate after last week’s last-minute 1-0 home loss to Sittingbourne.

Tenth-placed Corinthian Casuals hope to bounce back from last week’s 2-1 defeat to South Park with victory against Faversham Town.

Shaun Okojie pulled a goal back for the Casuals, but earlier strikes from Kofi Quartey and Dylan Merchant gave South Park victory.

Elsewhere, Carshalton Athletic, who sit 12th, have the task of facing South Park away from home, a week after they thrashed Ramsgate 5-2.

In the Combined Counties Premier League, Colliers Wood United and Raynes Park Vale face off in a south-west London derby.

Colliers Wood beat Sutton Common Rovers 2-1 a week ago, while Raynes Park Vale won 2-0 at Badshot Lea.
