Neal Simmons says his Dereham Town players are desperate to bounce back after their midweek Norfolk Senior Cup humiliation.
The Magpies were thumped 4-0 by Bostik North neighbours Norwich United in Wednesday's semi-final clash, but have a difficult return to league action when they visit second-placed Bowers & Pitsea on Saturday afternoon.
Their hosts have an 11-point advantage over Dereham, who occupy seventh position, from the same number of games.
Simmons welcomes Andy Howell and Seamus Kelleher back into his side and believes the match is a great opportunity for the Magpies to bounce back from the midweek disappointment.
'We are all looking forward to the game,' said the Magpies boss.
