Dereham Town may have dropped points at the weekend – but they can still move into the play-offs with a victory this evening.

The Magpies' hot streak of eight wins in 11 matches was slowed by a frustrating 0-0 draw at home against Ware as they failed to take full advantage of Wroxham and Brentwood, whose match was postponed, failing to add three points to their collection.

However, a home triumph over 12th-placed Tilbury tonight will see Matt Henman's men push their Norfolk rivals from the Broads – who they currently have two games in hand on – out of the top-five picture in Ryman North.

Dereham, sixth, could even move up to as high as fourth if Brentwood lose at home to Barkingside.

Great Yarmouth Town host Needham Market Reserves while King's Lynn Town's second-string entertain their Team Bury counterparts in the evening's other First Division action.
