Great Yarmouth face tough trip to high-fliers

Great Yarmouth Town will be desperate to shrug off the disappointment of midweek FA Vase exit when they test their credentials at league high-fliers Coggeshall Town.
The Bloaters will be wary of tired legs – having drawn at home to Debenham LC in the Vase last weekend, they were beaten 2-0 on Tuesday in a replay which went to extra-time.
Neighbours Gorleston play their second home match of the week, and their second without a permanent manager, tomorrow when they host Newmarket. The Greens beat Kirkley & Pakefield 3-2 in midweek, their first match without Ricci Butler in charge after he announced his resignation.
Another club currently without a manager, Fakenham Town, have a home game against Long Melford when they will be looking to add to their paltry tally of just three points. The Ghosts parted company with Robbie Harris on Tuesday night.
Wroxham – beaten 3-0 at home by First Division Norwich CBS in the FA Vase a week ago, have a trip to FC Clacton, while struggling Kirkley & Pakefield, winless in four league and cup games, travel to Ely City.

Thetford Town were without a game through no fault of their own last week – visitors Oakham United were unable to raise a side for their Vase game – but return to action at home to Stowmarket Town.
In the First Division, Norwich CBS will be looking to follow up their Vase win when they travel to Debenham LC, who beat Gorleston in midweek. The city side are quickly getting used to the step up from Anglian Combination Premier football and have moved up to eighth in the table.

Injured players are returning to fitness and joint boss Mark Collison is looking forward to having a full squad from which to choose.
“We are getting used to it now,” he said. “But until we are at full-strength I’m not sure we will know quite how we will fare on a regular basis.”
Second-placed King’s Lynn Town are at home to Diss, who have slipped to 14th, while Swaffham are away to Cornard United, Downham are at Little Oakley and Norwich United’s second string entertain March Town.
