Wroxham will be looking to put their defensive woes behind them when they entertain Waltham Forest.

The Yachtsmen were the masters of their own downfall in the 4-0 loss to Dereham on Thursday as they failed to clear their lines for two of the goals, while Matt Halliday fired into his own net late on to add to their worries.

Wroxham (20th) are four points clear of Erith & Belvedere in 22nd, but, having played two more games than them and Brentwood in 21st, boss Pawel Guziejko will be looking over his shoulder with concern for his side’s Ryman League status over the coming weeks.

Saturday’s opponents Waltham Forest have struggled all season for goals, with only 18 in 22 games and have lost four out of their last five in the league.

Wroxham striker Stephen Drake, who has been out for two months with an arm injury, may appear on the bench. New goalkeeper Robert Juhasz is expected to feature after Aaron Cranfield was forced off at half-time in the Dereham game.
