The survival situation looks simple for Wroxham this afternoon.

Win at Romford on the final day of the Ryman North season and they remain out of the bottom three.

Lose and Waltham Abbey will move above them with a win or a draw at home against relegated Redbridge.

A reprieve from the drop still looks possible for the team which finishes third from bottom but Damian Hilton's side will not have to worry about that if they can improve upon their 1-1 home draw with Romford in December.

Performing better than in Tuesday night's 4-0 loss to play-off qualifiers Cray Wanderers at Trafford Park would be a good start.

Dereham conclude their season after a busy midweek.

Luke Tuttle scored four as Great Wakering Rovers were thrashed 5-1 at Aldiss Park on Tuesday night, followed by a 2-0 home loss to Aveley on Thursday.
