Dereham Town look to build on five-match unbeaten run at Tilbury
Dereham Town will aim to continue their unbeaten month by adding to their points tally in Essex.
The Magpies endured a slow start to the Ryman North campaign but have picked up in September, winning three of their matches and drawing two.
So they head to Tilbury in confident mood – despite conceding a late goal to only draw 2-2 at home to Witham Town on Tuesday night.
Dereham boss Matt Henman said: 'I thought we played better on Tuesday than we did Saturday (1-0 win v Waltham Abbey).
'It's disappointing that we could not hold on for the win. I thought we were sloppy in possession on Saturday but worked a lot harder on Tuesday. I thought that Jake Anema was excellent and deserved his goal.

Dereham go into the match sitting 10th in the 24-team table. They are four places above their hosts having collected three more points from two extra matches.
Meanwhile, back at Aldiss Park, Dereham Reserves host 10th-placed Debenham LC in a Thurlow Nunn First Division match.
Wayne Anderson's side picked up their second victory of the season when they won 4-1 at home against Team Bury a fortnight ago.
Debenham lost their first four games of the season but have won their previous four, scoring 11 in those matches, so are sure to pose a threat.
