Spixworth and Harleston cannot afford any slip-ups

It will be a case of no slip-ups this afternoon as the top two continue their title chase.

It's second-placed Harleston whose tails will be up – the gap between them and Spixworth is down to eight points with two games in hand, with the amazing prospect of a final-day championship showdown between the two in a fortnight's time.

Spixworth suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend when they went down 3-1 at home to St Andrews, but will be looking to revert to type today when they entertain fourth-placed Mulbarton Wanderers.

Harleston are fresh from a 1-0 at Mulbarton and entertain bottom club Cromer Town this afternoon – and it could get messy.

The Crabs have won just one point from 27 games this season, although they remain on zero points after a deduction. Their goal difference is -109. Harleston have scored 48 times in 11 home games and conceded just eight.
