Fakenham Town will look to avoid a third successive Thurlow Nunn Premier Division defeat when they travel to Godmanchester Rovers tomorrow.

The Ghosts’ mini-blip started with a dismal 3-0 defeat at Thetford Town before a much-improved display when going down 2-1 at home to Felixstowe & Walton United six days ago.

But Wayne Anderson’s men remain 11th with 16 points from 13 games in their first season back at Step 5 since 2003/04 and the manager is looking forward to tomorrow’s visit to Cambridgeshire.

He said: “We have got to be careful but we will go there with a positive mindset after the way we performed against Felixstowe.

“We are going to lose more games this season and we are going to win some but if we can go to Godmanchester and give it everything there is no reason why we can’t get a result and bring something back with us.

“If we don’t get a result, as long as the boys put a good shift in again I will be happy.”

Fakenham have already played Godmanchester at Clipbush Park this season – losing 4-0 in September having been overran in the second period following a goalless first half.

Anderson expects to have left-back Matty Dye available again after an ankle injury while centre-half Lee Day (ankle) and striker Kyle Plumb (foot) are getting closer to fitness but aren’t expected to be ready.
