Leiston are desperate to stop the rot in the Ryman Premier Division.

Unfortunately, they could have chosen easier opponents to attempt to do that against, the Blues hosting fourth-placed Tonbridge Angels tomorrow night.

Leiston go into the game at Victory Road on the back of six defeats in their last seven – the one-time leaders now five points outside the play-off places.

However, they will be buoyed by the fact that tomorrow’s opponents squandered a 3-1 lead at home to Needham Market at the weekend, eventually losing 4-3 – albeit with 10 men.

But the Blues have to get their own house in order first, their latest setback coming against second-bottom Hendon, on Saturday, the London side recording just their second home win of the season.
