Joint Fakenham Town manager Neil Jarvis is expecting his side to finish their Thurlow Nunn Premier Division season strongly, with the Ghosts facing a trip to Ipswich Wanderers this weekend.

Jarvis’s side look set for a mid-table finish and he told the Lynn News he has options in his squad with players returning from injury, writes Ed Colman.

He said: “It’s normally a decent pitch over there so we might be able to play a bit more football than we did on Saturday.

“We’ve seen them now so we might just tinker with a slight change in personnel, perhaps a couple more offensive players.

“We’re only missing Stephen Harvey now as he missed Saturday with a calf problem. That might be him finished for the season.

“Kyle Plumb put in another good shift up top on Saturday, I was very pleased with him and he is slowly getting there, and it was nice to have the quality option in Ashley Jarvis to bring on.

“I thought Matty Dye was excellent, he has come back in now and done well, and James Page did very well too – they have both put in a few good performances now since getting back in.”

The club’s final home game of the season has been moved forward to Friday, May 1, kick off 7.45pm.

Other games in Thurlow Nunn tomorrow see in-form Downham Town, who drew 1-1 at Yarmouth Town on Tuesday night, at champions-elect Long Melford.

King’s Lynn Town Reserves will be hoping to fulfil their aim of a top-six finish when they travel to Leiston Reserves.
