Thetford Town will look to erase the memories of a weekend drubbing when they travel to struggling Kirkley & Pakefield on Tuesday night.

The Brecklanders were on the receiving end of a 7-1 home hammering by Stowmarket Town and have slipped to 10th in the table.

Kirkley are just three places off the bottom after a poor start to the season which has seen them win just once in 12 attempts. They were beaten 3-1 at Ely City at the weekend.

Gorleston travel to Stowmarket, having lost 4-3 at home to Newmarket Town – goalkeeper Taurean Molloy was given a straight red card in that game – his ban kicks in after seven days. The Greens are seventh in the table.

In Division One, there is a derby of sorts when Diss Town entertain Norwich United’s Under-21s.

Diss are struggling to get going this season – they were beaten 3-2 by leaders King’s Lynn Town Reserves on Saturday while the young Planters drew 1-1 at home to March to sit 12th in the table, three places above Diss.
