Brantham Athletic V Wroxham
First game on the list must be match of the day, the home side, having played their opening seven games away, returned to The Leisure Centre last week and have picked up two wins scoring eight times and they are the league’s leading scorers. They will be tested here by an in form Yachtsmen who will be buoyant from the FA Cup exploits. They have conceded just two goals in their ten games so far so this will be a real contest, best attacking record against best defensive record

FC Clacton V Haverhill Rovers
The Essex Seasiders have played fewer games than anyone else but have won their last three so wins from the games in hand could push them up the table significantly. Just two points and one place separate them from a Rovers side who have lost their last three conceding nine goals. This is a significant game for Rovers as defeat could see them slip to perilously close to the bottom six while the home side can gain valuable ground on those above them while maintaining their games in hand.

Gorleston V WisbechTown
The home side are having an up and down time at present, excellent results followed by disappointing defeats, but they will be happy with their overall form so far and will feel they are capable of beating anyone on their day. The Fenmen have overcome that shock 9-0 defeat with two straight wins to bounce back to form and they present a stiff test for any side at present and they have won four of their five away days so far and seem to enjoy the sea air having scored five at Clacton earlier in the season.

Hadleigh United V Diss Town
Unpredictable is probably the correct word for this game. The Brettsiders manager has been busy in the transfer market recruiting a trio of new players, the latest being former Suffolk Seasiders ‘Keeper Dan Heath to replace the departed Louis Johnson. They have lost four of their last five at The Millfield and will want to improve that record against a Diss side that won on their last away day but who have lost their last two at home.

Kirkley & Pakefield V CRC
New manager Paul Tong has certainly got The Royals going and they picked up an excellent 4-1 win at Aldiss Park in midweek, they will now want to show the home supporters what they can do and face a side that will let them play but who equally can damage you with their passing game. The Scholars have yet to lose on their travels this season having conceded just once in four away days while freescoring with double figures in their goals for column.

Mildenhall V Gt. Yarmouth Town
The home side are one of the fancied clubs to be pushing at the top this season, they have had a couple of setbacks but sit in fourth place well in touch with the three above them. They will ve disappointed if they don’t pick up maximum points here against a side that will probably feel avoiding relegation is probably a good target to achieve on current form.Theyb have conceded a dozen goals in their last three games although they did take maximum points off Brantham in one of those games.

Newmarket Town V Felixstowe & Walton United
The Jockey's will be boosted by their first win of the season in midweek with the bonus of it being an away victory and lifting them off the foot of the table. They will view this as another winnable game against The Suffolk Seasiders who are finding three point hauls hard to come by at present. Neither side’s record is impressive and both will feel they can improve here with the away side possibly happy if they could collect their first draw of the season.

Walsham Le Willows V Norwich United
The Willows recovered from five straight defeats at the start of the season to win twice before losing in mid-week at home to Mildenhall, this is the fourth straight game at Summer Road for Paul Smiths side but will be another stiff test against a Planters side have played their last three games at home but won on their last away day at Hadleigh almost a month ago. The visitors have lost just once in their last five and that against the current league leaders and a win would open a gap between thos below them with Ely being idle this afternoon.

Wivenhoe Town V Dereham TownOn paper this should be an away banker but recent results might suggest there could be an upset on the cards, the Dragons ended a five match losing run in mid-week with a home draw against The Woodpeckers while second placed Dereham crashed at home to Kirkley & Pakefield. The Magpies have now lost three of their last four although the win was away from Aldiss Park while the home side have lacked goal power this season scoring at less than one a game while conceding at well over two.

Woodbridge Town V Stanway Rovers
Many expected Woodbridge to be chasing the leaders this season but results have not been spectacular for them and they played out a goal-less draw at the basement club in mid-week. They have picked up just one win in their last eight and that at the then bottom club. They face a Stanway side that will be high on confidence that seven straight wins brings. Currently sitting in third they look impressive and could go second on Saturday night dependent on other results.
