Dereham Town travel to third placed Bowers and Pitsea on Tuesday night boosted by their superb 6-1 away win against Grays Athletic on Saturday.

Neal Simmons' side then have home games against Soham Town Rangers on Thursday night and fourth placed Haringey Borough on Saturday.

A good points tally from their remaining seven games would give the eighth placed Magpies a decent chance of reaching the Bostik League North play-offs, with several of the top six sides facing each other over the last three weeks of the season.

The Magpies are currently four points behind Heybridge Swifts, who occupy the final play-off position, having played one more game.

They should be encouraged by the fact that they already have 11 away wins under their belts this season, a tally bettered only by leaders AFC Hornchurch.
