IPSWICH Wanderers' are certain to finish in the bottom three of the Ridgeons League Premier Division following a 2-0 defeat at home to Felixstowe & Walton United last night.

Wanderers are stranded at the foot of the Premier Division table and, even if they were to win their remaining three matches, Swaffham have a goal difference of plus 25 over the Norfolk side who are currently fourth bottom.

However, with either Needham Market or Soham set to be promoted to a higher league it is likely only two teams will be relegated and so Wanderers could still maintain their Premier Division status if they don't finish in the bottom two.

Felixstowe missed an opportunity to take the lead as early as the ninth minute when Trevivian brought down Phillips and the Felixstowe player stepped up to take the resultant penalty. Hammond dived to his left to keep the ball out and the scores level.

Felixstowe took the lead after 18 minutes when Edwards put in a strong run down the right, crossed deep to Hetherington at the far post and headed back across goal for Phillips to make amends by heading home from close range.

On 45 minutes Jennings' cross from the right was headed back across goal and Barber's header was held by Crump - a carbon copy of Felixstowe's move that ended with their goal.

After 56 minutes Phillips evaded the offside trap and despite a timely tackle from Symonds got in a shot that rebounded off the far post.

Both sides had had numerous chances in the second half but it was Felixstowe who scored after 65 minutes, Calver hammering home a loose ball after Wanderers failed to clear. Wanderers kept plugging away and Felixstowe had several more chances but the game was effectively over with the second goal and all subsequent efforts by the home team proved to be in vain.
