Seasiders hope to get back to home action against Newmarket Town

With another weekend lost to the weather, the Thurlow Nunn official league season now has just eight Saturdays left before it should all be concluded, but the early forecast has predicted another snowy weekend to further complicate the league fixtures, writes Phil Griffiths.
Felixstowe & Walton are well up with their fixtures as the chase for the league title begins to get heated, with the Seasiders and Coggeshall looking the main contenders while Stowmarket Town churn out results to stay on the periphery of the action should either of the top two falter in the closing weeks.
Weather permitting, the Seasiders host Newmarket Town at the Goldstar Ground in what will be their first home game for over six weeks, and their first game home or away for three.
The gap between Felixstowe & Coggeshall is down to eight points, with the Seedgrowers having three games in hand, so there will be little room for error in the coming weeks for either side.
Newmarket, who enjoy an artificial playing surface at their Bloor.ie stadium, have managed to fit games in while the less fortunate have struggled, but have a poor record in recent games, losing four of the last five, with their most recent fixture a hard earned home draw against Thetford Town last week.

Their away record is mid-table stuff and they sit 12th in the Premier Division table with eight wins and three draws from their 18 away fixtures to date, but they have been fluent scorers, averaging two goal per game on their away days, and will be looking to avenge a home defeat when the Seasiders visited them in early February.
The Felixstowe management will be hoping to have a virtually full squad available with a doubt over a couple of the long term injured.

They lost their last two home games, although you have to go back to mid-January to find those results, and will be looking to continue where they left off before the enforced break and add to the two wins picked up from their only league games in February.
