Mildenhall Town boss Dean Greygoose is keen for his side to gain some revenge on Ipswich Wanderers this afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

Up until Ipswich Wanderers’ 2-1 win over Hall on January 2, Greygoose’s Mildenhall had looked unstoppable in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.

Before the trip to Humber Doucy Lane, Hall had won 17 games on the bounce and were several points clear at the top of the division.

However, since the slip-up in Ipswich, Hall have won just two of the following six league games, and have lost their last three games.

Newmarket Town, Felixstowe & Walton and Gorleston have been closing the gap on the west Suffolk side, but Greygoose is optimistic his team will get through this tough patch.

“Every team goes through difficult spells in a season, and there’s no hiding that we are in one right now,” said the boss.

“We won some games in the 17-game winning streak that we shouldn’t have done, and that’s catching us up a bit now.

“After sitting at the top of the table for the majority of the season, the pressure is always on us, I accept that, but we have to keep the faith.

“It’s up to the players to get back on the right track, there have been some funny results everywhere in this league recently.”

Greygoose continued: “We have got what we have deserved recently.

“We were poor against Ely (a 1-1 draw), were well-beaten by Felixstowe (0-3), and were absolutely horrific against Saffron Walden (1-2).”

Despite a 1-0 defeat at in-form Great Yarmouth Town last Saturday, Greygoose was impressed by his team’s performance, and is hoping his side can play at that level against Wanderers today.

“The Wanderers game is a big one for us,” said the boss.

“They were the team who stopped our winning run earlier this season, and they are a solid side.

“I’m hoping for a good game of football. We put in a good performance at Great Yarmouth, but missed chances at key times.

“We need to get back to being more clinical in front of goal again, and stop letting teams off the hook.”
