Leaders Mildenhall make the short journey to Walsham-le-Willows this weekend for a game that should yield a routine three points for the visitors.

However, the home side have a habit of pulling out big performances against the top sides and have lost just one of their last six. With the Willows enjoying home advantage, this may not be quite as routine as ‘Hall would like.

The big local game takes place at the Leisure Centre, where Brantham host Godmanchester. The home side have shown some resilient form under their new management, but haven’t quite managed to turn that form into positive results, and they will see this game as a big opportunity to end a run of four straight defeats (Kick-off 2pm).

Ipswich Wanderers face a tough trip to a Thetford side that have lost just once since the turn of the year, and have made Munford Road a bit of a fortress. This will be Wanderers’ fourth consecutive away day.

Hadleigh face a difficult trip to Stanway, who have strengthened their squad in recent weeks, after some indifferent results that have seen them drop out of the title chase.

Every point is vital for Hadleigh, as they try to climb out of the relegation zone, but they will need to be at their best to gain anything here.

Haverhill Rovers make the long trip to Clipbush Park to take on an unpredictable Fakenham side. Rovers will be hoping to bounce back after crashing out of the league cup in midweek, and pick up their first away point since November.
