Dereham Town will continue their preparations to try and reach the Norfolk Senior Cup final when they host Maldon & Tiptree in league action today.

The Magpies' semi-final clash at King's Lynn Town Reserves has provisionally been rearranged for Tuesday night, with the winner to face Norwich United at Carrow Road.

Matt Henman's men will first aim to continue their momentum at home against the Jammers. Dereham have lost just once in their last six matches and triumphed 2-1 at Romford last time out. They sit eighth in Ryman League North, four places above Tiptree. In the corresponding fixture, played last month, an injury-time equaliser from Ryan Crisp earned Dereham a 2-2 draw.

• Wroxham have an opportunity to climb out of the relegation zone when they travel to Essex to take on fellow strugglers Barkingside, who sit one place and five points below the Yachtsmen. Side held Wroxham to a 1-1 draw at Trafford Park in January, prior to Damian Hilton's arrival as manager, and have recently ended a 17-match winless streak by beating Witham and drawing at Tilbury.

The Yachtsmen won their first two matches under Hilton but have lost their last two.
