Dereham Town will be looking to open their 2015 account when they welcome Thurrock to Aldiss Park today.

The Magpies slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Soham on New Year’s Day and boss Matt Henman is calling on his side to up their concentration levels.

He said: “We have got to start keeping our concentration levels when the ball is away from us and not get caught out by sporadic attacks which let sides get back into games, where we should be putting sides to the sword.

“We gave Soham a way back into the game and something to hold onto on Tuesday, and we can’t do that, especially against sides around us in the league.

“I don’t want to have an immediate reaction and change too much, from Soham, as I thought we were excellent for 90pc of the game. But we have let ourselves down and we have undone so much of our good work from some sloppiness in key areas, which we need to stop.”

Michael Clunan and Sam Borrer are available after missing the Soham trip, but Henman’s side are still without the injured Gary Starling and Luke Tuttle.

The Magpies go into the game in 11th place in the table.
