Following last weekend’s 4-3 defeat at the hands of Felixstowe & Walton United, Ghosts boss Wayne Anderson is calling on his side to finish the Thurlow Nunn Premier season on a high ahead of their meeting with Gorleston.
Fakenham Town secured all three points in the reverse earlier in the season and they go into tomorrow’s game three points ahead of The Emerald Park outfit, but Anderson is expecting another tough test.
“That game away to Gorleston showed back then we were capable of getting results against the top teams, even though we had only just been promoted,” he said.
“We were on a good run at the time and made an excellent start but what has been very good since then is that we haven’t dropped off and slipped away from a good position.
“You’re always going to win games and lose games after getting promoted but when we have been beaten we have usually bounced back quickly which is why we are in the top eight going into February.
“That’s a brilliant achievement and with three months to go we aren’t worried about not staying in the division so we have got to now go out and keep our levels up between now and May.
“We are where we are because of the hard work of everyone in the squad and that’s the way it has to continue to be as there is still a lot of football to be played.”
In Thurlow Nunn Division One both Swaffham Town teams return to action, after their respective matches were postponed last weekend.
The Pedlars play host to lowly Needham Market Reserves, who are currently third from bottom in the table, and will be looking leapfrog Debenham LC into third dependent on the result of their match with King’s Lynn Reserves.
As for Downham, Bob Warby takes his side to Stowmarket for what promises to be an end to end mid-table affair as the Memorial Field side go into the game level on points with Stow, but ahead of them on goal difference.
