Fakenham Town manager Wayne Anderson is calling on his side to put last weekend’s 4-0 home defeat to Stanway behind them tomorrow, when the Ghosts travel to Haverhill Rovers in the Thurlow Nunn Premier League.

The Ghosts boss told the Lynn News he is hoping his side can put the defeat behind them and finish the season on a high.

He said: “It was a disappointing day for us against Stanway, they bullied us after we started well and to concede three scrappy goals was a very frustrating way to lose a game of football.

“Despite our frustration at the manner of the defeat last week, it’s important we remind ourselves that you’re always going to have blips and that this season has still been fantastic for us a club. From my point of view we have already achieved more than we set out to do.

“We need to make sure that we keep preparing the right way and that we finish the season in the best possible position which will help us push on in the next couple of years.

“Off the pitch we are in a really good position and if we keep improving on the pitch, I will be asking the club to possibly look at pushing for Ryman League football in the not too distant future.”

In the First Division, Swaffham Town make the trip to mid-table Halstead and after an impressive 5-1 victory over Leiston Reserves last weekend, the Pedlars travel to Rosemary Lane looking to keep the pressure on promotion rivals Long Melford and Saffron Walden Town.

Bob Warby’s Downham Town slipped to a 2-0 defeat at home to leaders Saffron Walden and they will be looking to bounce back atstruggling Needham Market Reserves this weekend.
