Dereham Town’s play-off credentials set to be tested by Brightlingsea Regent

Dereham's hopes of cementing a serious play-off challenge will be given a thorough examination when they go to Brightlingsea Regent today.
The Magpies – sixth and just one point outside of the top five – visit a Brightlingsea outfit that are just three places and five points behind them.
The Essex coastal side, who were promoted from the Eastern Counties League in the summer, have won four and drawn two of their last six league games.
The Magpies go into the game on a three-match winning streak though, following last Saturday's 2-0 win at Burnham Ramblers.
Toby Hilliard and Craig Bussens were both on target in September when Dereham beat Regent 2-1 at home.
