BURY Town boss Richard Wilkins is hopeful that Suffolk rivals AFC Sudbury can help derail Chesham's play-off ambitions and open the door for his side next week.

Following their late victory over Leighton Town on Thursday night - Stuart Walker scoring an 84th minute winner in a 1-0 win - Bury are now four points off the final play-off place in Midlands Division One of the British Gas Business League.

Wilkins' side, who host fourth-place Chasetown on Saturday, now need maximum points from their final three games, as well as relying on fifth-place Chesham dropping points from at least two of their three.

AFC Sudbury could therefore prove instrumental in their Suffolk rivals ambitions as they host Chesham on Tuesday night - and Nick Smith's side will need no motivation for that match after they were cruelly beaten in the reverse fixture by two controversial stoppage time goals on Wednesday.

Wilkins said: “Nicky Smith phoned me up after their game on Wednesday and was very upset with the refereeing. Two late Chesham goals, in the 95th and 97th minute I believe, were hard to take, but hopefully Sudbury will turn them over on Tuesday.”
