Gorleston looking for home comforts
Gorleston continue with their run of home games in the Premier Division with their fourth in a row when Haverhill Rovers are the visitors.
The Greens – who are in action at Emerald Park again on Tuesday when Godmanchester Rovers visit – needed a late equaliser to earn a point at Haverhill back in December. However, they are in decent form, having thumped visiting Hadleigh 6-2 a week ago.
On paper, Godmanchester looks the tougher of the two fixtures, with Goddy having lost only one of their last 14 league games, a defeat at Great Yarmouth Town. The two sides are yet to meet this season but will now play twice in a month.
Great Yarmouth Town also have two matches to look forward to in the space of four days. They travel to eighth-placed Saffron Walden today and then make a much shorter journey to Clipbush Park to take on relegation-threatened Fakenham Town on Tuesday evening.
The fixture was called off at late notice earlier in the season because of behind-the-scenes issues at Fakenham that have long since been resolved.
The Bloaters lost 2-0 at home to high-flying Coggeshall in midweek and joint manager Adam Mason said: “Coggeshall are another juggernaut of a side full of players that have played at a higher level. We competed well for much of the game but we match their resources. We weren’t embarrassed, which is important and it was a good learning experience for some of our younger players.”
Elsewhere, Wroxham host second-from-bottom Ipswich Wanderers with their sights set on cracking a place in the top six by the end of the season.
Kirkley & Pakefield are at home to Histon while third-from-bottom Fakenham Town travel to Wivenhoe Town, who are bottom of the table.
In the First Division, Norwich CBS are at home to Debenham LC, and fourth-placed Swaffham Town entertain AFC Sudbury.
Diss Town, desperate to halt their slide down the table, host Leiston while Norwich United Under-21s have a trip to bottom side Needham Market. Wisbech St Mary host second-from-bottom Team Bury.
