Leon Ottley-Gooch should be fit for Leiston

Just six games remain for Richard Wilkins’ Leiston side, two of which come during the next three days, starting with a first-ever trip to Burgess Hill Town today.

The Blues realistically have to win all six games and hope other sides drop points if they are to make the end-of-season play-offs.

Their remaining three home games, starting against Billericay Town on Easter Monday, are against sides who also have hopes of reaching the play-offs.

If they fail to reach their pre-season target of the play-offs, the campaign will still have been a success.

The Blues need just three points to better their best-ever total at this level (67) and they have a Suffolk FA Premier Cup Final against Lowestoft Town to look forward to.

In-form striker, Christy Finch, said: “I think six points will keep us in the hunt for the play offs.

“We know we have to win every game, against some big sides but every game in this league is tough.”
