Thetford Town and Gorleston clash on Tuesday night – with both teams looking to build on wins.

The Brecklanders eased into the quarter-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup at the weekend after a 3-0 home win over Scole United.

Manager Danny White will be eager to see his team transfer their knockout cup form into the league, where they have drifted down to 17th, having lost eight of their last nine games.

Gorleston were without a game at the weekend, but Stewart Larter’s team travel to Thetford on the back of two wins, one in the FA Vase, one in the league, which followed a miserable run of seven league games which saw them pick up just one point. The Greens are two places and two points ahead of Thetford going into tonight’s game.

Elsewhere, Brantham host Hadleigh United and Haverhill Rovers are at home to third-placed Coggeshall.

In the First Division, there’s a derby at Aldiss Park where Dereham Town Reserves host Diss Town.
