Dereham Town will be looking to fight off fatigue this evening when they make their longest trip of the season to face Chatham Town in Ryman Division One North.

Tonight's game is the Magpies' last scheduled midweek game of the season and manager Matt Henman admits he may be forced into changes.

Henman, whose men beat Harlow 2-1 on Saturday to remain fourth, said: 'We know that we're not going to have a full squad against Chatham, it's the longest trip of the season for us and playing it on a Tuesday night makes it very difficult for some of our squad to get there.

'However, that said, we were able to rest players on Saturday and pick a side with Tuesday's game in mind, so we are able to give ourselves as many options as possible for tonight. All through the season we have shown we can hold our own and compete at the top of this league and we will be looking to keep this up tonight.'
