Gorleston’s promotion credentials will be thoroughly examined today when they travel to fifth-placed Godmanchester Rovers.

The Greens made it nine wins from their last 10 with a 1-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Woodbridge Town on Wednesday night, with Thurlow Nunn Premier top scorer Christy Finch scoring his 26th league goal of the season.

Victory could move Stewart Larter’s side up to second, as Felixstowe & Walton United travel to runaway leaders Hadleigh United, and would still have two games in hand on their rivals as well.

Godmanchester lost 1-0 at Norwich United on Tuesday night and the Planters will look to make it five successive league wins at lowly FC Clacton.

The only team in home action in the Thurlow Nunn Premier are Diss Town, who begin their relegation battle under new manager Mike Derbyshire against Woodbridge at Brewers Green Lane.

Former Great Yarmouth Town boss Derbyshire was announced as the successor to Chris Tracey in midweek with the Tangerines just a point outside of the relegation zone and without a league win since November, losing 11 of their last 12.

Thetford Town are also yet to pull clear of the relegation zone and are just two points better off then Diss.

Mark Scott’s side travel to mid-table Haverhill Rovers looking for their first win in seven matches.

In the First Division, Swaffham Town have a chance to push their promotion claims if they can claim a fourth successive victory when they travel to basement boys Cornard United.

Fakenham Town will look to join Swaffham in the promotion places when they host mid-table Debenham, aiming to build on a 1-0 home win against Team Bury on Wednesday night.

Great Yarmouth Town are also at home, against promotion rivals Ipswich Wanderers.
