Dereham Town make their final trip of the season when they head to Tilbury.

Neal Simmons' side are eighth in the table, while the Dockers are in 18th position.

Dereham boss Neal Simmons will be without recent signing Rossi Jarvis, who will miss the last three games of the season after dislocating his shoulder in the 2-2 draw against Brentwood on Tuesday evening, when the visitors snatched a point late on. Striker Joe Gatting is absent as he prioritises cricket – he will be playing for Swardeston, where he has been appointed captain, in their East Anglian Premier League opener at Mildenhall.

But another striker, Jamie Forshaw, is set to return after missing Tuesday's game through suspension while Andy Howell is also in the squad.

Dereham have seen their hopes of a place in the play-off decline in recent weeks and they go into the game at Tilbury on the back of a run of just one win in their previous 10 league games since mid-February.
