It’s top versus second in Ryman League Division One North on Saturday, as leaders VCD Athletic host Witham Town.
North Essex side Witham saw their impressive eight-game winning streak come to an end at Needham Market, 1-0 on Thursday night, and victory today would see them replace their opponents at the top of the table.
Manager Garry Kimble, the division’s Manager of the Month for March, says victory for either side today won’t determine the fate of the title but, with two games in hand, Witham would suddenly become slight favourites to win automatic promotion.
“It is not about Saturday’s result and there will be many more twists and turns before the end of the season, especially as both ourselves and VCD have to play around us,” said Kimble.
“There isn’t much between the teams. We won the game 4-1 at our place earlier on in the season so they will be smarting from that.
