In-form Lowestoft Town go in search of their sixth win on the spin when they head to the south coast to take on Worthing tomorrow.
The Rebels are just four points worse off than the Trawlerboys in 13th place in the Ryman Premier Division but they have lost six of their last seven games.
However, Lowestoft boss Ady Gallagher will not be getting carried away with over-confidence after seeing Worthing win handsomely at Crown Meadow in December.
“They beat us 4-0 at our place, not much went right for us that day but we had chances and if we had taken them it could have been a different story,” Gallagher said.
“But things have changed and they will be looking at others behind them in the table and will be wanting to stop the run that they are on. As we all know, teams can really slip into difficulties at the end of a season, but we’ll treat them with the utmost respect.”

The Blues’ fifth successive win came on Tuesday night when goals from Jamie Forshaw and Nico Cotton saw the Trawlerboys beat Newmarket 2-0 to remain on course to win the Suffolk Premier Cup for a third season in a row.
The Trawlerboys will face Needham Market in the final, which is scheduled to be played at the Colchester Community Stadium on Monday, May 8, but is subject to Colchester United not being in the League One play-offs.

“We avoided a banana skin, we knew Newmarket had no pressure on them and wanted to enjoy it, so we knew it would be a big test because they would play with no fear and had players who could cause us problems,” Gallagher continued. “So to navigate a tricky game and get through it really well, as we were on a hiding to nothing in a difficult situation, I thought the players managed it well.”
Rossi Jarvis and Chris Henderson missed the tie through injury, with Fraser Blake-Tracy and 21-goal top scorer Jake Reed also out with knocks – the latter pair should return tomorrow.
