Dereham and Norwich United both head for London

Archant

Away games await for both Dereham Town and Norwich United in Bostik League Division One North today.

Second-placed Dereham head to lowly Cheshunt looking to stretch their five-match unbeaten run, the last four of which have been wins.

Neal Simmons’ team beat Mildenhall 3-1 at Aldiss Park on Tuesday night when a Jamie Forshaw double secured the victory after Robbie Linford’s opener early in the second half had been cancelled out.

The Magpies travel to north London knowing three points could take them top, depending on how leaders Canvey Island get on at mid-table AFC Sudbury.

Second-from-bottom Norwich United also head for the capital and face a tough encounter against fourth-placed Haringey Borough.

Steve Eastaugh’s side picked up their first home win of the campaign last weekend, beating Waltham Abbey 2-0 at Plantation Park thanks to goals from Hafeez Sanusi and Adam Hipperson to move off the bottom of the table.
