Dereham Town boss Matt Henman believes his side are in a great position to extend their five-match unbeaten run when they travel to Redbridge.

The Magpies beat Aveley 5-1 at Aldiss Park last Saturday and Henman is adamant his squad have enough quality to add to their points total at Redbridge.

'We have been playing really well of late, picked up some excellent results and as a result confidence levels are high going into the game and we are looking to put more points on the board,' Henman said.

'We have played on their pitch before when we played Barkingside and we know it isn't one of the league's better pitches, and last time the conditions caught us out slightly.

'This time we have got an opportunity to pick our team to suit the pitch, so we are in a position to concentrate more on ourselves and focus on getting the result.'

The Magpies have scored 16 goals in their last five matches but will be without strikers Luke Tuttle and Kyle Downes for the trip.

Henman added: 'I am not concerned at all about us struggling in front of goal. We have still got Danny Beaumont, Craig Bussens and Shaun Bammant who can do the job for us and, if anything, Luke's suspension gives him a chance to have a bit of a rest considering the amount of games he has played lately.'
