Mildenhall Town boss Dean Greygoose admits he my have to ‘freshen things up a bit’ as the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division club look to overcome what, for them, has been a sticky period.
The Recway club have been at the top of the table for almost the whole season and are still 16 points clear of second-placed Felixstowe & Walton.
Although both the Seasiders and Gorleston have games in hand on Greygoose’s team, Mildenhall are very much in the boss seat, although a defeat at Ipswich Wanderers two weeks ago and a draw at home to Ely City on Tuesday night, has swayed the Mildenhall boat slightly.
“We were poor against Ely, we didn’t play well at all,” Greygoose bemoaned.
“Our lack of quality was the most disappointing, sometimes we were just hoofing it and I don’t like to see that.
You may also want to watch:
“To be fair we have only had three or four poor performances all season, so there is little to complain about, but against Ely it was a chance to extend our lead at the top and we didn’t take it.”
Mildenhall entertain the improving Godmanchester Rovers on Saturday and the week after have a top-of-the-table showdown with Felixstowe, at the Goldstar Ground.

The ball is still very much in Hall’s court, but Greygoose is not sitting on his hands.
“I have a seven-day approach in for one player and I’m looking at another couple,” he said.
“It’s maybe time to freshen things up a bit. I want us to get back to playing how we were a couple of months ago.
“We are still in a very good position and I don’t want things to get a bit ‘squeaky bum’. I have a couple of injuries and perhaps a new face will help.
“There are still a lot of league games to go and teams see us as a big scalp.
“I’ve been in this situation before with AFC Sudbury where we have been well ahead in the league table. But you don’t often win leagues until Easter and that’s still a way off.”
Meanwhile, Godmanchester have won five of their last eight league games to pull away from the relegation zone and into mid-table.
They are one of the form teams in the Premier Division.
“We beat them 3-2 at their place,” Greygoose said.
“But we dominated the game.
“They have improved a lot though and, like all games in this league, it will be another tough one.”
