Felixstowe & Walton United make the relatively short trip to Summer Road this afternoon (kick-off 3pm) to face a Walsham-le-Willows side struggling to find their form.

Having played five of their opening six games away from home, the Willows did play their first home match in midweek, but were left still searching for that elusive first league win after going down 4-2 to Newmarket.

The Seasiders travel with their unbeaten league tag and 100% record still intact after their 2-1 midweek win at home to Ipswich Wanderers, but know there is no room for error if they are to record their seventh straight league win.

Victory would see Felixstowe move into top spot ahead of champions Norwich United, who have no game.

Sheridan Driver (hamstring) and Jordan Matthews (shoulder) are doubtful starters, having missed the win against a Wanderers side who travel to Godmanchester today.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division, Hadleigh host Thetford hoping to move up the league table, while Brantham Athletic travel to bottom-of-the-table Fakenham Town.

Whitton United welcome Gorleston, while FA Cup giantkillers Kirkley & Pakefield and Stanway Rovers meet, while Newmarket take on FC Clacton.
