A happy headache for Dereham Town chief

Dereham Town boss Matt Henman admits his Magpies' excellent 2-1 win at Ware has provided him with plenty of food for thought.
The Magpies came from behind to secure back-to-back Ryman Division One North victories with their 'bravest' display of the season.
As a result, Henman says he's now got a selection headache going into today's home clash with Cheshunt.
Henman said: 'There are going to be some difficult decisions for me to make ahead of Cheshunt.
'The players that played on Tuesday have been outstanding and on top of that we will have a few players back available to us who were unavailable at Ware so there is lots of competition for places.'

Kieran Bishop had given the home side the lead but an own goal and Luke Tuttle's penalty earned three crucial points for the Magpies, who now sit 11th in the table.
'It was maybe our best league result of the season and certainly our bravest performance of the season,' Henman added.

'With a lot of young players on the pitch and after going behind early on we could have crumbled quite easily, but we didn't and I thought we showed an unbelievable amount of character to not only get an equaliser but also to take the lead and then defend it with the strength we did.
'I said before the game that we would need to show a lot of character to go there and win and the lads all put in an excellent performance and it would be wrong to single players out on a night like Tuesday after such an outstanding team effort.'
A victory at Aldiss Park would move the Magpies to within touching distance of the play-off places. Their visitors sit three places, and four points, behind them in the relatively early-season standings.
