Wroxham face a daunting trip to Bromley to take on leaders Cray Wanderers.
Stewart Larter's team will travel in a better frame of mind than of late, having recorded their first victory in 11 games in mdiweek.
The Yachtsmen progressed to the quarter-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup on Tuesday night after beating Great Yarmouth Town 4-1, goals from Nathan Stone, Ollie Ebbage and a brace from Michael Sommerfield bringing some cheer to the home support in a tie that all were happy to see concluded following three previous postponements.
Cray are four points clear – quite a turnaround from last season when the south London club were looking like bottom-three material before a major injection of personnel saw them rise up the table to eventually finish comfortably in mid-table.
Cray are likely to field former Norwich City Under-18s player Nathan Fox – the defender is on good form with two goals in his last two appearances. But with a run of three games unbeaten, Larter will be looking forward to the challenge.

Larter has had players unavailable for one reason or another, but is beginning to see some of the injured returning to the squad.
Unfortunately, one of those, Jack Garrod, is unavailable for selection but Andy Howell returns after suspension.
