There may have been a change at Aldiss Park this week but Dereham Town will be hoping it's business as usual at first-team level.

The Magpies' reserve boss Wayne Anderson quit his role to return to Fakenham less than a year after making the short move across Norfolk. Yet at Ryman League North level, nothing has changed with long-serving duo Matt Henman and his sidekick Neal Simmonds preparing to take charge of another game.

Today it's the visit of Romford to Norfolk as Dereham look to continue their lengthy unbeaten run which has kept hopes of making the play-offs very much alive. The Magpies may well be nine points off the top five but with 17 matches to go have a real chance of gatecrashing the top five if they continue their hot streak.

Henman's side came from 3-1 down in midweek to make it 11 matches without defeat. Luke Tuttle put them in front at home to Haringey Borough but they soon found themselves staring a defeat in the face until Rhys Logan and Luke Winter struck late on to extend their fine run.
