FELIXSTOWE and Walton United will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Ridgeons League Premier Division to eight matches when they visit mid-table Norwich United tomorrow.

The Seasiders have moved up to eighth in the table, with the signing of Neil Calver from AFC Sudbury proving a wise move by manager Steve Potts.

Paul Smith's Walsham-le-Willows have a tough-looking fixture at King's Lynn Reserves as they seek to establish themselves in the top flight.

In the First Division, Hadleigh United entertain Stowmarket Town in what promises to be a keenly-contested derby.

Dave Hubbick's side will be looking to avenge a two-goal defeat sustained early in the season.

Hadleigh will be without Lee Smith and Chris Smith, both injured in the recent Division One defeat by Whitton United, but Patrick Fleming played for the reserves in midweek following a long-standing toe-injury.

A win by Gary Thompson's Whitton at Halstead would consolidate their top-six placing, while seventh-placed Debenham Leisure Centre - with games in hand on all their promotion rivals - are in action tonight when Diss Town are the visitors.

In the Senior Division of the Metaltec SIL, leaders Leiston St Margarets have four teams immediately on their tail and can't afford any slip-ups.

Neil Cole's side will fancy their chances at Coplestonians, although the home side become more of a force when Bruce Rolls and Glenn Turner are fit to take their places up front.

Of the chasing pack, Stowupland Falcons face bottom-of-the-table Haughley United, who now have Adam Riggey in charge, with Melton St Audry's away to East Bergholt.

Bergholt top scorer Chris French will be missing as he is serving a five-week suspension picked up in Sunday football.

Stonham Aspal have only lost twice in the league since their return to senior football, but they will not find life easy at Felixstowe United.

In-form Capel Plough have been beaten just once, and will give third-placed Tony Hall's Brantham Athletic a stiff test.
