Wroxham boss Stewart Larter insists his side are only concentrating on themselves as they prepare to travel to Thamesmead.

The Ryman North play-off places have become increasingly congested in recent weeks – compressed further by Dereham Town's impressive 3-1 victory over title chasers Needham Market on Tuesday.

The Yachtsmen are still one of the leaders of the pack, occupying third place and unbeaten in four games, with Larter saying: 'I think it will go down to the last game of the season.

'The top eight or nine are all in with a shout and any team can put a run together and shoot up.

'We can't worry about that though, we can only worry about ourselves and what we're doing and hopefully the rest will look after itself. We're in a good position but I don't think we're under any real pressure as we are the surprise package.'

Larter also praised forward Jamie Forshaw's recent form, which has seen him notch three goals and two assists in the last two games to take his goal tally for the season to 11.

'Forshy's done really well of late,' he added. 'To be honest he had gone through a spell where he wasn't quite up to the standard we know he has, but it's really good now to see that his confidence is back.'
