New course for Ryman North Wroxham
Wroxham will be looking to rediscover some of their early-season sparkle when they entertain Soham Town Rangers this afternoon.
The Yachtsmen have hit a somewhat stuttering patch of form of late, with just one win in their last four games, compounded by a 2-0 defeat at the hands of league leaders Needham Market last weekend.
Stewart Larter's men still sit third in the table, but with the teams below them having games in hand, their place in the Ryman North play-off positions is far from secure.
Three games in the next seven days gives Larter and his troops the opportunity to get back on track, with the Soham game followed by a trip to Brightlingsea Regent on New Year's Day and then a home clash against strugglers Cray Wanderers 48 hours later.
This afternoon's opponents, Soham, have had an up-and-down season by their standards, collecting 38 points from their opening 25 games to leave them 10th in the table.

Back-to-back wins against Burnham Ramblers and Chatham Town have steadied the ship somewhat after the Cambridgeshire outfit went almost two months without a victory, between October and December. The Yachtsmen will be confident of finding their shooting boots again after a fairly lean period in front of goal, with Soham displaying the leakiest defence of the sides in the top half, conceding a total of 48 goals so far this season.
Larter has pretty much a full-strength side to pick from for the game, with Jack Garrod, Jordan King and Ben Price all available for selection after missing the Needham defeat.

Soham Town Rangers manager Steve Fallon will make a number of forced changes.
David Prada and Victor Torres have returned to their native Spain for the festive holiday period, but Jordan Gent could return with Andy Palmer.
'I'll have to make a few changes,' said Fallon.
The former Cambridge United player confirmed that Luke Stanley remains with Soham, despite interest from Cambridge City.
'City can talk to Luke if they still want him. He hasn't heard anything yet but it will take a good offer to tempt him away,' he said.
'He enjoys it with us and is happy at Soham.'
Kick-off at Trafford Park is 3pm.
