A big crowd is anticipated tomorrow night as Brantham Athletic host Ipswich Wanderers.

Wanderers go into the game just two points ahead of their hosts, but with a game in hand.

They have had an erratic run of results including a thumping at home last time out, following a big win over Stanway.

The hosts have won four of their last five games so will be confident, knowing a win will take them into a top ten spot.

On Saturday, Hadleigh, deep trouble at the wrong end of the table, travel to Thetford who are unbeaten in six – albeit four of those games have been drawn – and are running out of time if they are to avoid the drop into Division One.

An unbeaten five-game run ended at home to Brantham last weekend, but with four of those games ending as draws, it has left them precariously positioned just above Wivenhoe, who have three games in hand.

Wivenhoe travel to Ely, who could do Hadleigh a massive favour with a win over the Dragons, themselves in trouble three months ago. The Robins have pulled away from any threat of relegation to sit comfortably just below mid-table.
