Runaway leaders Mildenhall will be glad to see the back of January having dropped eight points in the five games played after a 19 match winning run stretching back to August, they host a Saffron Walden side unbeaten in six & keen to improve their mid-table position this weekend.

Brantham play their first game since early January looking to pick up their first win since the start of December, they host a Yarmouth side sitting in 6th spot after gaining promotion last season.

Hadleigh United host high-flying Newmarket, they lost the reverse fixture 6-1 on the Jockey’s artificial surface at the beginning of January and will be keen to avenge that defeat as they battle to stay clear of the relegation spots.

They have picked up four points in their last two games and would settle for draw here against the third-placed side.

Ipswich Wanderers host basement club Swaffham looking for their fourth straight win on home soil, while struggling on their travels Shane Wardley’s side have improved their recent home record, including a win over leaders Mildenhall. Wardley will be looking for a similar performance against a visiting side yet to record a win away from Shoemakers Lane.

Long Melford have picked up two excellent wins in their last two games and have the opportunity here to pretty much ensure Premier Division football next season as they host an FC Clacton side who like Swaffham, have yet to win on foreign soil.

Paul Smith’s Walsham side look to have shaken off relegation fears with a four-match unbeaten run that has produced eight points from a possible 12 and a result here against a Haverhill side without an away point or goal since November could see them leapfrog their visitors.
