Henman’s Dereham Town aim to continue their upward Ryman League North movement
Dereham Town head to Great Wakering Rovers looking to secure a third league win on the spin, writes Rene Kendal.
Back-to-back Ryman League North home victories against Thamesmead Town and Heybridge Swifts have lifted the Magpies back into the top half of the table. So they'll be keen to continue their upward movement at Burroughs Park this afternoon.
Matt Henman's men warmed up for the clash with a 3-1 Norfolk Senior Cup triumph at lower-level Diss Town on Tuesday night as they aim to build up a decent run of form.
Dereham's boss said: 'I thought we started well, but they scored a good goal to go in front. We showed a lot of character and got our goals at vital times. We scored a quality third goal which finished the game off.'
Wakering sit 15th, four places below Dereham, and have won two of their last four league outings – one victory coming by four goals to two at Wroxham. They have conceded nine goals during that period though including two in a defeat the last time they played on their own turf against Maldon & Tiptree on November 7.
