Felixstowe & Walton play host to basement side Swaffham Town tomorrow, in a game that carries plenty of importance for both clubs.
Seasiders boss Kevin O’Donnell was delighted with his side’s attitude last week, during their 4-0 win over Long Melford, and will be looking for a similar performance here against a side that always give them a difficult game.
O’Donnell should have a full squad available, minus Nick Ingram, who continues to recover from glandular fever.
Fellow striker Miles Powell, meanwhile, who has missed the last 15 games through injury, is almost back to full fitness.
The Seasiders boss will go into this game almost spoilt for choice after fielding the only 11 fit players available to him in some recent games.

However, he will not take this encounter lightly, the game is a potential banana-skin against a side that are bottom of the league, and without an away win. They lost the reverse fixture 3-1.
Felixstowe go into the game knowing the two sides immediately above them play each other, while second-placed Stanway Rovers have a difficult trip to Kirkley & Pakefield. Leaders Mildenhall have the day off.

Should the Seasiders pick up maximum points they could go second behind Mildenhall while defeat could see them drop further behind the current top four.
Like Felixstowe – Mildenhall, Newmarket and Stanway have applied for promotion and it will be very much down to where they all finish and, of course, making sure that their facilities are up to the required standard.
While Mildenhall remain hot favourites to win the title, the chasing pack have to assume they will slip up and be ready to step in.
