Thetford manager Danny White is aiming for a top-10 Premier Division finish.

The Brecklanders moved up to 12th in the table after a 5-0 win at Haverhill Rovers a week ago – and today travel to the town’s other team, Haverhill Borough.

White was delighted with the performance – the goals came from a Volta Rocha hat-trick, Ben Anderson and Andrew Wood – and is looking for his players to build on it.

“The win was excellent and thoroughly deserved,” he said.

“We had a goal disallowed, a blatant penalty that wasn’t given and a couple of good chances so the scoreline could have been greater. I think a top-10 finish is a realistic aim now, although there are a few teams on similar points it will now be about consistency and going on a little run.”

Rocha continued his highly impressive form since returning to the club by scoring his second hat-trick in the last three games and his immediate impact has pleased White.

“Volta hasn’t surprised me,” he said. “I knew he was a good player and that once we got him in and he adapted to how we play he would express himself.”

With the transfer window shutting at the end of the month the Town boss admitted he is happy with the make-up of his squad going into the remainder of the campaign.

“We have no plans for new players as we hopefully have Johnny Conroy back training next week and still have Melanson, McIntosh, Clarke and Tavares to come back after missing the Haverhill game,” he explained.

Great Yarmouth Town got back to winning ways when they beat FC Clacton 2-0 – but face a tougher proposition with a home game against leaders Felixstowe & Walton United.

Kirkley & Pakefield also have a difficult game, away to second-placed Coggeshall Town, while Gorleston are at home to Stanway Rovers. Eight-placed Wroxham have a trip to Histon, who are fourth, while Fakenham Town travel to Saffron Walden Town.

In the First Division, Swaffham will be hoping to make up ground on the top three when they host Cornard. Diss host Team Bury, Downham are at Halstead and Norwich CBS welcome Little Oakley.
