The surging Capel Plough have a chance to make it eight wins in a row in the SIL Senior Division this weekend.

The Ploughmen dispatched Grundisburgh 3-1 last week and currently sit second in the table, ahead of their home clash with sixth-placed Coplestonians.

It won’t be easy though - Cops come into the match off an impressive 3-0 win over table-toppers Felixstowe Harpers last week, and will be looking for a second straight win over one of the league’s high-flyers.

Harpers will try to bounce back in a home match with free-scoring Achilles, who sit in fourth, three points behind their hosts but with two games in hand and a massive plus 31 goal difference. They thumped Haughley United 5-1 last week.

Crane Sports, in third, host East Bergholt United after dominating Bramford United 7-1 last week. Bergholt are also coming in fresh off a win, a 2-1 victory over Westerfield.

No dramas as such with Town’s defeat at Middlesbrough, but there’s a degree of frustration that we have seen a couple of times in three weeks now, writes Karl Fuller.

From the counter kings at Derby, to the counter chumps at Middlesbrough. With five of the next seven games at home, Ipswich Town need to take their medicine and quickly refocus on maintaining the fun factor at Portman Road.

Play to your strengths. It’s a well-worn piece of wisdom which applies in most walks of life, and certainly includes sport, writes North Stander Terry Hunt.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes his team let Middlesbrough off the hook in this afternoon’s 2-0 defeat at the Riverside Stadium.
