LOWESTOFT Town manager Micky Chapman is not expecting an easy ride when his side take on Wivenhoe Town at Broad Lane today.

The Blues - who have led the table for virtually the entire season - were finally crowned champions on Tuesday night following victory at Mildenhall Town.

The north Suffolk side now have a Premier Cup final at Portman Road against Needham Market to look forward to on Tuesday night, however Chapman knows his side have a tough fixture to get out of the way first.

He said: “We're expecting a tough game. They (Wivenhoe) played us a few weeks ago at our place and they were a well organised, well disciplined and physical side. On the night they probably felt they were quite unlucky to lose 2-1. It was a tough game and we had to work very hard to get that result.”
