The chase for the Premier Division title gets back underway against Mildenhall for Norwich United today.

The Planters saw their treble hopes ended in midweek with a 2-0 defeat at Wroxham in the Norfolk Senior Cup semi-finals.

Damian Hilton's side remain 13 points clear at the top of the table though – after last week's top of the table clash at Godmanchester was postponed – and have a League Cup semi-final approaching later this month.

Mildenhall will arrive at Plantation Park in good heart this afternoon though, having won three of their last four league games.

DIss Town face a tough proposition in facing third-placed Stanway, although will hold out some hope after Rovers saw a seven-match winning streak ended with a 1-1 home draw against Wivenhoe in midweek.

Kirkley & Pakefield will look to bounce back from defeat at Thetford last weekend when they host Fakenham. The Ghosts are also in need of a win, having tasted victory just once in their last five matches.

Thetford will look to build on that success when they look for a third consecutive victory when they travel to Haverhill, the team just below them in 14th place in the table.
