Ely City (18th) Harwich & Parkeston (22nd)

WILL the Robins be the first to fall against the new management team at the Shrimpers? Ely have won only two from six at home and scored just five goals. The Shrimpers, with a straight eight defeats on the road have scored six times away. Something has to give.

Felixstowe & Walton United (10th) v Walsham-le-Willows (7th)

THE Seasiders could have no complaints after their midweek defeat at home to leaders Leiston, but now have three more home league fixtures in November to restore the supporters faith. They have already lost at the Willows in the League Cup and the visitors haven't lost on their last five trips away from Summer Road.

Histon Reserves (13th) v Hadleigh United (9th)

THE Brettsiders have only lost once on the road and have a +4 goal difference so will not fear this trip to Bridge Road while the home side have won their last four home games scoring 17 times while conceding just once. Two of those wins were against the basement clubs however.

Kirkley & Pakefield (5th) v Debenham LC (6th)

THE Royals have conceded just three goals at Walmer Road, all in their only home defeat so far and will present a stiff test to a visiting Debenham who themselves have a respectable away record. This will certainly be a big test for the Maitlands side.

Leiston (1st) v Wroxham (8th)

THE Victory Road side were full of quality in midweek when they brushed aside the Seasiders unbeaten home record to extend their advantage at the top and entertain the Yachtsmen who have won their last four on the road. The visitors have five games in hand over the leaders but cannot afford to drop any points.

Mildenhall Town (16th) v King's Lynn Reserves (19th)

'HALL re-arranged their midweek game to accommodate CRC but still went down at home and will be looking to get back on track in this game against a Linnets side who have lost seven out of eight on the road including midweek at Outwell to take their losing run to five games.

Newmarket Town (17th) v Woodbridge Town (19th)

NEWMARKET have lost their last three but will be looking to collect maximum home points against a Woodpeckers side that have won just three times this season, all on the road. Victory here however could put them within two points of the Jockeys.

Norwich United (12th) v Haverhill Rovers (14th)

A must win game for the Planters. Rovers sit a point behind them in the table with five games in hand. Norwich have drawn their last three at home but lost heavily in midweek away, while Rovers have won three and drawn one of their last four.

Stanway Rovers (4th) v CRC (3rd)

MATCH of the day, Rovers need a win here to keep in touch with the sides above them including their visitors. CRC have now gone 14 games without tasting defeat including a midweek win at Mildenhall and are on the heels of the top two.

Wisbech Town (11th) v Needham Market (2nd)

THE Fenmen have found some form in the last month with a run of five games undefeated and will need to maintain that against a Needham side in top form with a 14 match unbeaten run and wins in all the last seven. The Marketmen edged a close game in midweek against basement side Harwich.

Wivenhoe Town (21st) v Dereham (15th)

POSTPONED - Dereham Town have five players in Norfolk Under 18's squad.
