STOWMARKET TOWN head to MILDENHALL TOWN this weekend in good heart after another Thurlow Nunn Premier League victory on Tuesday night.
Their win at home to Hadleigh and Woodbridge's defeat at Kirkley & Pakefield saw Rick Andrews' side leapfrog the Woodpeckers to head the table.
It's now six league wins on the bounce for Stowmarket, who are so far doing all in their power to live up to their pre-season favourites tag.
This weekend's game against Ricky Cornish's Mildenhall Town however, will be a tough test.
After losing their first three games, 'Hall are back on track, sit mid-table and look like they are settling back down to life at Step 5 after their relegation last season.
On Wednesday night, they won 4-1 at Haverhill Rovers to propel them up the table.
Only one other team are unbeaten in the Premier Division now, and that's WROXHAM, who are involved in the match of the day at WOODBRIDGE this weekend.
