Gorleston will draw level on the same points as the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division's second-placed side if they beat FC Clacton today.
The Greens, third in the Eastern Counties league's top-tier, are three points behind Felixstowe & Walton United. But they have played two games less and could even leapfrog them if they win by five clear goals or more this afternoon at Emerald Park.
Elsewhere, Kirkley & Pakefield visit troubled Ely City, Norwich United entertain runaway league leaders Hadleigh United and Thetford Town welcome Brightlingsea Regent.
In the First Division, league leaders Fakenham Town will once again be without a fixture after their trip to Saffron Walden Town fell foul of the weather.
Improving Downham Town – who have this week signed Danny Emmington and Sam Darlow – welcome Braintree Town Reserves while Swaffham Town make the trip to Halstead Town.
