Wroxham will be looking to make it six league wins on the bounce when they travel to 10th placed Aveley, writes Thomas Crabb.
The Yachtsmen have hit a rich vein of form that has propelled them to fifth place in the Ryman North table, with a 3-0 victory over Thamesmead Town last time out consolidating their position and extending the gap to five points over sixth-placed Ware.
And assistant manager Cedric Anselin – who will take charge of the side for the trip to Aveley with Stewart Larter away on personal matters – is in a buoyant mood over their chances.
'Hopefully we will go into the game fresh and full of energy,' he said.
'We've had a mini-break since our last game and to be honest, sometimes you don't want that after being on a run of winning five games on the bounce as it's nice to keep momentum and winning confidence going, but the players have worked hard to get us where we are so they deserve a bit of a rest.'

'We don't have a big squad but we do have quality, and hopefully everyone will go into the game 100pc and come home with the win.'
Anselin was also full of praise for the way the Wroxham players have kept their feet on the ground in recent weeks.

'In between these five league wins we had the cup loss to Harlow and that was the trigger for us,' he explained.
'Our confidence was sky high following the Romford game, so losing to Harlow made sure we kept our feet on the ground and helped us to react well in the following three games.
'We've opened up a five point gap to Ware behind and it's now up to us to show that we have the character to stay where we are,' he added.
Wroxham go into the game with a full bill of health, with midfielder Remy Gordon looking to continue his own personal form that has seen him notch five goals in as many games.
