Hunt said: “I’m really looking forward to Saturday, it is going to be a tough test but top of the table games are always like that.

“We are going into the game on a high after the FA Vase win and while we are still competing in four cup competitions it is important to remember that the league is your bread and butter.

“Harleston have really kicked on since the opening day, but we have beaten them once and are still the only side to do so.

“I know my lads are capable of beating them again, but it is going to be a tough test and we are going to be ready for that come Saturday afternoon.”

Harleston’s visit to Shoemakers Lane tomorrow will kick-off at the earlier time of 2pm due to on-going floddlight issues.

Elsewhere in the First Division North tomorrow, Fakenham Town play host to AFC Sudbury Reserves (3pm) looking to extend their unbeaten run.

Victory for the Ghosts tomorrow, could see Andy Cunningham’s side climb to fourth in the standings depending on results elsewhere.

Downham Town will be looking to build on Tuesday night’s 3-1 victory over March Town United in the First Division Knockout Cup when they travel to Diss Town.
