Dereham Town know a victory – if other results go their way – could move them into the Ryman North play-off places come 5pm.

The Magpies have won eight of their last 11 league matches and sit just two points and one place outside of the prized top-five positions. They also have the luxury of a couple of games in hand on the two teams directly above them and boss Matt Henman wants to make sure his troops keep turning up the pressure on their play-off rivals.

The Dereham boss, whose in-form side host Ware this afternoon, said: 'Ware have been doing quite well recently and we know that we are going to have to work hard to get something from the game and it's important that we do so as the most important thing for us now is to try and break into the play-offs.

'It is important that we have got back-to-back home games coming up; firstly against Ware and then Tilbury on Tuesday and we need to carry on performing the way that we have been in order to try and take maximum points from the games and put us in the best position possible.'
