Ghosts host Cornard United at Clipbush Park
Fakenham Town manager Andy Cunningham isn’t getting carried away by his side’s excellent recent form ahead of the visit of Cornard United to Clipbush Park this weekend.
The Ghosts go into tomorrow’s Thurlow Nunn First Division North match fourth in the standings, unbeaten so far in 2019 and searching for a sixth straight league victory.
Cunningham is thrilled by his side’s results of late but knows they have set themselves high standards to maintain for the remainder of the season.
“We have set a really high standard over the last couple of months and while it’s been great and I am delighted with what we have achieved and the way we are playing, we can’t get carried away and must keep taking each game as it comes,” said Cunningham.
“I want to see us keep this run going and to do that we need to keep performing as well as we have been and keep doing all the positive things we have been doing as well as we have.
“This is a tough league, there are no easy games and to have won five on the bounce shows that what this group of players is capable of.
“Cornard will be another tough test, a different test but we will go into the game on a high and confident of getting another three points.”
Elsewhere, King’s Lynn Town Reserves will be looking to complete a quick double over Felixstowe Reserves - who they come from behind to beat last Saturday - at the Walks.
On Wednesday night, the reserves saw their home game against Diss Town postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Swaffham Town will be looking to get their promotion push back on track tomorrow when they welcome Leiston Reserves to Shoemakers Lane, while Downham Town welcome league leaders Harleston Town to the Memorial Field.
Both Swaffham and Downham will be looking to bounce back from defeats last weekend against Lakenheath and Needham Reserves respectively.
