The Vanarama National League season is building towards a tremendous finish with a number of clubs vying for the outright title and March will focus squarely on the credentials of a number of those challengers who want to ultimately lift the championship trophy.

As part of our #BTWeekend which has been well received this season by football fans, BT Sports` LIVE coverage from the Vanarama National will concentrate on the following two selections in March, which will feature each being scheduled for lunchtime viewing to get the respective weekends off to a great start.

The first match will be the eagerly-anticipated local derby encounter on Saturday March 4th between Chester FC and near-neighbours Tranmere Rovers. When they met earlier in the season at Prenton Park the clubs played out a 2-2 draw with The Blues of Chester coming back from 2-0 down.

That match was also in front of the largest attendance seen in the Vanarama National League so far this season of 7,790.

Whilst The Blues will be unable to reach that capacity for the return, it is expected the Deva Stadium will be nearly full to its current capacity of around 5,500. With less than 20 road miles separating the two clubs the atmosphere will be electric for sure. The match will kick off at 12.15pm.

Later in the month on Saturday March 25th, the BT Sport cameras will hope that another reverse fixture will stir much excitement and interest along with a big crowd turning out to watch the action unfold at Sincil Bank. If this encounter rivals the previous meeting in the season between Lincoln City and Forest Green Rovers then it is one not to be missed.

In November, it seemed Rovers would be extending their lead in the title race over The Red Imps, as with just two minutes left to play they led 2-1 but City scored twice to unbelievably win 3-2.

This return therefore could be defining in the ambitions of both clubs to earn promotion come the end of the season. Once again as part of the standard #BTWeekend package this will be a 12.15pm kick-off.
