There is a massive game at Ipswich Wanderers tonight as Hadleigh United visit Humber Doucy Lane clinging on to their Premier Division status by a thread.

There is a massive game at Ipswich Wanderers tonight as Hadleigh United visit Humber Doucy Lane clinging on to their Premier Division status by a thread.

With two of the relegation places already settled, the third and final spot is between the Brettsiders, Long Melford and Wivenhoe, the latter having the advantage of a game in hand over their rivals.

Hadleigh make the short trip to Ipswich knowing this is a must-win game, but they will not find their hosts in a generous mood as they have their own agenda and want to finish in the top half of the table.

Tomorrow, Long Melford should have a big advantage when they host already-relegated Swaffham.

Melford need four points to guarantee survival but with the pressure off their visitors, they may find them a tough nut to crack, the Pedlars have picked up 11 points from a possible 18 in recent weeks.

Wivenhoe, with that game in hand, can make a big stride towards survival with a win against visitors Fakenham Town who have little to play for.

Should they win, the pressure would be very much on the two sides currently above them in the table, to make it a nervous last day next week.

Walsham Le Willows host Brantham Athletic without too much resting on the result for either side. Walsham, after a good run that pulled them away from the relegation zone, have slipped up in the last couple of games while Brantham, unbeaten in five, will have one eye on next season as they look to build a strong squad.

Champions-elect Mildenhall head to Stanway Rovers in what could be a difficult game to get themselves motivated for.

Stanway were very much in the title chase in the first half of the season but have slipped away since December while Mildenhall have ploughed a relentless trail to the top.

Basement club FC Clacton host a reinvigorated Godmanchester Rovers and could find the going tough against a visiting side that have won their last five.

Haverhill Rovers host Gorleston, both sides looking to get a season that promised so much – but in the end produced disappointment – out of the way, while Great Yarmouth entertain Saffron Walden.

Kundai Benyu has left Ipswich Town to sign for Scottish champions Celtic on a four-year deal.
