With the destination of the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title decided, the battle for the runners-up position goes into the last week.

If Newmarket Town fail to collect three points at home to Kirkley & Pakefield tomorrow and the Seasiders win at Ely, then Kevin O’Donnell’s men will finish second.

Any other combination would see the battle go into the final game when the two sides meet at The Goldstar Ground on April 29.

Both sides should be favourites to collect maximum points although The Seasiders face a tricky test at the Unwin ground with Ely having a decent home record.

The Jockeys host a Kirkley & Pakefield side who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season and have lost five of their last six games.
