There were three midweek games played in the National League with contrasting outcomes of importance for the sides involved. Grimsby Town picked up a 2-1 victory away from home against Bromley after going a goal behind in the early stages, to keep their automatic promotion hopes alive. Sean Francis put Bromley in front in the 6th minute, but goals from Jon Nolan and Jon-Paul Pittman secured the win for The Mariners. The three points mean that Grimsby remain in third, and in doing so they cut the gap on Forest Green Rovers and Cheltenham Town above.

Kidderminster Harriers lifted themselves off the foot of the table with an impressive 3-2 home victory over Eastleigh at Aggborough. Luke Maxwell, Harry White and Arthur Gnahoua scored the goals for the hosts, which were enough to deny Eastleigh, who scored twice through James Constable. Gnahoua scored a fine solo goal to win the tie, as he dribbled forward with pace, to ensure Kidderminster swapped places with Torquay United down at the bottom of the table.
