Wroxham will be looking for their third win in seven when they travel to Saffron Walden Town today.

A hard fought 1-0 win at Long Melford in difficult conditions was followed by a 5-2 mauling at home to previously unbeaten Walsham-le-Willows on Tuesday night. Young striker Peter Wiltshire netted his first goals for the club with a hat-trick and will hope he can continue with that form.

Joint managers Tom Parke and Ross Potter opted for a joint strike force as the former Norwich City Academy player lined up alongside Ross Gilfedder – and it proved an inspired decision as Gilfedder also got on the scoresheet.

Parke was naturally delighted by the performance: 'The Yachtsmen supporters were waiting for that. Still lots of areas to improve but hard work in training is paying off.'

In other Premier Division matches, Fakenham travel to Brantham Athletic, Kirkley & Pakefield are at Newmarket Town and Thetford host leaders Coggeshall Town.
