After three successive defeats Dereham will be looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to Barking in Bostik League Division One North.

Last Saturday the Magpies suffered a 3-0 home loss against table topping Basildon United before losing by the odd goal in three after making the long midweek trek to Great Wakering Rovers.

Dereham boss Neal Simmons said: “Following a difficult week, we are obviously disappointed with our most recent form. We are working hard to ensure that we return from Barking with something on Saturday.

“The latest fixture away to Great Wakering was particularly unfortunate as we created enough chances to win the game, but things just aren’t dropping for us at the moment but if we keep working hard our fortune will change.

“We welcome Andy Howell and Ashley Jarvis back to the squad but we are still missing the influential trio Rhys Logan, Jamie Forshaw and Ryan Crisp.

“Saturdays fixture will be followed by the visit of Kempston Rovers in the FA Trophy, a competition that we would love to have a good run in.”
