Dereham Town at full strength ahead of Ryman Division One North trip to AFC Sudbury

Dereham Town boss Matt Henman is happy to be dealing with a different sort of headache than the one which plagued him in the earlier part of the season.

Henman sends a fully-fit Magpies squad into battle away at AFC Sudbury today, something which so far this term has proved a rare luxury for the Aldiss Park chief.

He said: 'We are delighted to be going into the game with a fully fit squad, something which we haven't had for a long time. It's a welcome selection headache for me as a manager and it's now a case of making the right choices.

'While its great to have options as a manager, you have to keep everyone happy and use your whole squad to your advantage. Something I think you have to do and something we do very well here at Dereham, is rotation within the squad. All our players here have bought into the way we work.'

Town go into the game sitting in eighth in Ryman Division One North, five points and two places above Sudbury and are looking to follow up a 4-0 home victory over rivals Wroxham on Boxing Day.
