Dereham Town face the prospect of eight games in 19 days as they bid to get their play-off bid back on track.

The Magpies have lost three games in a row and have drifted out of the play-off places to eighth in the table.

They visit 12th-placed Grays Athletic on Saturday afternoon and with three points imperative, boss Neal Simmons will be boosted by the availability of new signing Rossi Jarvis and the return to fitness of striker Jamie Forshaw.

“We have a tough away trip to a team unbeaten in seven, although happy to be playing on a 3G pitch following the dreadful condition of the pitch at Ware last week,” said Simmons. “

“Rossi Jarvis is in line for his debut and the returning Jamie Forshaw will feature. We have eight games in nineteen days so lots of points to play for.”

Dereham visit promotion-chasing Bowers & Pitsea on Wednesday, entertain Soham Town Rangers on Thursday and then face another play-off rival Haringey Borough at Aldiss Park next Saturday.
