Dereham have a good opportunity to extend their seven-match unbeaten run this afternoon when they travel to lowly Erith & Belvedere.

The Kent side are also new to Ryman First Division North this season, but have not adjusted to life at a new level as well as Dereham and currently sit 21st in the table.

The Magpies go into the match on a high after their huge 10-1 win against Waltham Forest last weekend but manager Matt Henman knows it will be tough to maintain those standards.

'We know we have set our standards high over the past few weeks and I believe we have sent out a very strong statement to every other club in this league,' said Henman.

'We have put ourselves in a great position and we want to stay there but know we will have to work to do so. Saturday's game is another tough away one but if we remain clinical in front of goal and stay tight at the back we will give ourselves a great chance.'
