After last weekend's weather frustrations Fakenham Town hope to be in home action on Saturday against Gorleston (3pm).

The teams met in the FA Cup at the start of the season when the Ghosts won 5-3 at Emerald Park, only for the Greens to gain revenge in the league when they won 4-0 on their own patch in mid-September.

After last weekend's weather frustrations Fakenham Town hope to be in home action on Saturday against Gorleston (3pm).

The teams met in the FA Cup at the start of the season when the Ghosts won 5-3 at Emerald Park, only for the Greens to gain revenge in the league when they won 4-0 on their own patch in mid-September.

Since then Fakenham have struggled to get off the bottom of Ridgeons One while Goreston have established themselves in sixth place with 12 wins and three draws from 20 games.

The Ghosts are four points adrift at the bottom, but have three games in hand over Long Melford, the team just above them.

Recent form has indicted they are capable of avoiding the wooden spoon with a late haul of points, as last campaign.

Fakenham Reserves are also showing signs of better form although they are second bottom of Anglian Combination Division Two with 11 points from 17 games. Below them are Downham Reserves (six from 15) and above them Sprowston Wanderers (12 from 18) and Acle Reserves (12 from 13).

In Division Four of the Central & South Norfolk League, Fakenham Town A are fourth after winning 6-3 at Thurton & Ashby.

Dereham Town have been handed a home draw in the quarter-finals of the FA Vase if they win their re-arranged fifth round tie at Needham Market on Saturday. The Magpies would entertain Chalfont St Peter or Christchurch.

Last year's finalists Lowestoft would play Bideford - the only side definitely through to the last eight - if they beat Hungerford.
