Fakenham Town are the visitors to Felixstowe & Walton’s Goldstar Ground for this weekend’s round of Thurlow Nunn Premier Division fixtures (3pm kick-offs), writes Phil Griffiths.

The Norfolk side must be wondering what they have done to upset the fixture secretary, having faced four of the current top five in their opening six league games.

They now travel to the current third-placed Seasiders to complete the set with the season only a month old.

Yet to record a goal in those opening six games, while conceding 16, the Ghosts will be hoping for a change of fortunes to kickstart their season against the Seasiders, who were knocked out of the Vase last week.

Kevin O’Donnell’s men also dropped a place in the league table as Godmanchester Rovers climbed up to second, having hit five against the Ghosts.

O’Donnell will be wary of this game against a side whose fortunes must turn at some point, but will be boosted by the sight of Duane Wright playing 45 minutes and scoring for the Reserves in midweek.

With a 100% record of played four, won four in the league, the opportunity is there to reclaim top spot depending on other results, with both sides currently above them in the table having tricky away games.
