This week's predictions are below, don't forget to join in using the comments section below with your own guesses.

Rotherham v Gillingham (League 1)

Matthew Panting: Gills have responded well to life under Steve Lovell but goals continue to be hard to come by. Expect Rotherham and Kieffer Moore to have too much firepower for them. 2-1

Steve McKimm: I'd like to say Gills but Rotherham are flying at the minute and Kieffer Moore, the lad they've got on loan, is scoring goals for fun. I think he'll be the difference. 2-1

Jake Allchin: With Gills turning in some good performances but not putting away their chances in recent games,under caretaker manager Steve Lovell, I can see this being a closely contesting match. Gills away form particular bad, until the away win at Peterborough, plus the freedom been given on the ball from Lovell, I can see Rotherham’s class just coming through. 2-1

Gateshead v Dover (National League)

MP: Chris Kinnear's team continue to march along at the top of the National League and they'll add victory at Gateshead to some already notable scalps this season. 0-1

SM: Dover are a strong outfit and Steve Watson, Gateshead's new manager, needs time to bed in and get the players he wants. Watson's done all his badges, was Macclesfield No.2 and deserves to be a No.1 but I think Dover will have too much. 0-1

JA: Dover are very consistent leading their way into November. Ambitious and full of positivity and energy, with the win over National rivals Woking midweek, a win looks on the cards for the Whites. 1-2

Dartford v St Albans (National League South)

MP: Hard to call this one, Dartford have scored goals for fun at home but St Albans will provide stern opposition. Expect this to end in a stalemate. 1-1

SM: Dartford are very good at home, or have been very good at home. It'll be a tough game but I reckon Dartford will win. 3-1

JA: Dartford topping the pile in the Conference South, goal difference separating just under a handful of teams, this game is built for an entertaining watch. Dartford still look too strong and with the home faithful behind them, expecting a convincing home performance. 3-1

Sittingbourne v Merstham (FA Trophy)

MP: Brickies have already beaten Merstham once this season but I can't see them doing it a second time in the FA Trophy. Expect Bostik Premier Merstham to progress against their Bostik South opponents. 1-3

SM: Sittingbourne are flying but Merstham have an unbelievable attack. Ryan Hall shouldn't be playing at this level - he's far too good - and Dan Bennett's scoring goals too. They've also brought back a defender and a midfielder from last season who have strengthened them. 0-2

JA: Sittingbourne having a great term so far! Out the blue, with a brilliant togetherness about their squad and management team, this could be a close match up. However Mersham should have too much in their tank to take them through to the hat for the next round. Always room for an upset! 2-3
