An inconsistent Wroxham face a daunting trip to Thamesmead Town this weekend.
Following a run of three defeats in five games, Wroxham embark on one of their longest away trips, to the banks of the River Thames in east London, to face the side that currently sit in seventh place in the league.
Having failed to find the net on their last two outings, Wroxham manager Stewart Larter will be looking for his attacking players to step up and find the back of the net.
The Yachtsmen's last two goals were scored by their centre-half pairing of Ollie Ebbage and Matt Halliday away at Redbridge.
One of the players Larter will be hoping to perform is Jamie Forshaw. The forward this week committed himself to the club by signing a new contract, following talk of other clubs being interested in his services.
Last weekend the Yachtsmen were on the wrong end of a four-goal thrashing as they came up against one of the league's early pacesetters.
A hat-trick from George Purcell and a goal by David Knight were enough to see AFC Hornchurch return home to Essex in good spirits. Meanwhile, Wroxham were lamenting the absence of five potential defenders through injury or unavailability.

One player who did play was new signing Lewis Sturman, who has joined Wroxham from local rivals Dereham Town.
Whilst it was not a debut that the former Norwich City youth team player had hoped for, he did bring some much-needed experience to the Wroxham back-line.
Wroxham hope to have a number of those players who missed last week's game back in the squad. Andy Howell is nearing a return from a long lay-off. Also possibly returning are Jackson Ramm, Stephen Taylor, Jack Garrod and Nathan Stone.
