Dereham Town are looking to keep up their recent hot streak on the road as they begin back-to-back away matches.
The Magpies won 2-0 at Tilbury on Tuesday to make it three consecutive Ryman Division One North victories away from Aldiss Park on the bounce.
And Matt Henman's men will be keen to add more points to their tally when they visit Thamesmead Town this afternoon ahead of making the trip to face Heybridge Swifts on Tuesday.
The Tilbury win – which came courtesy of goals from Luke Tuttle and a Courtney McLean own goal – moved Dereham up to 10th in the table. They are now only three points off the play-off places despite a relatively indifferent start to the campaign.
The Magpies have won seven, drawn one and lost five of their first 13 matches.

Their latest defeat came on their own turf on Saturday as they disappointingly lost 3-0 to Cheshunt.
Despite that reverse, the Magpies should be feeling confident going into the weekend after bouncing back so quickly in midweek.

Tuttle is in fine goalscoring form and Henman's young squad are once again showing they belong in Ryman Division One North during their second season at that level.
Their opponents today, nicknamed the Mead, saw their four-game unbeaten run come crashing to an end last time out during their first ever visit to Brightlingsea Regent.
They were hammered 5-0 by the former Thurlow Nunn League club.
