Mildenhall and Willows set to collide in clash of the top two
The Thurlow Nunn League’s current best two teams face one another at Recreation Way tomorrow (3pm). League leaders Mildenhall Town host surprise package Walsham-le-Willows knowing they cannot be knocked off their perch this weekend, but that Willows could close the gap to two points at the top of the Premier Division. Btoh sides are currently on excellent runs in the league, Hall having won eight of their last 10 and Walsham their last six in a row. Willows manager Paul Smith said: “It’s going to be a tough game and one that is nice to be involved in. “In the next four or five games we will see how far we can go because we’re also playing the likes of Wisbech and Brantham.” Tom Agricole (ill) could return for Walsham, but Gavin Johnson, Paul Musgrove (both knee), Jack Brame and goalkeeper Duncan McAnally (both suspended) are out. Johnson is due to have a knee operation on December 18. Facing the Willows will be ex-Summer Road favourites such as Andrew Wood, Steve Holder, James Attwood, Alex Steed and Wayne Proctor. Mildenhall boss Christian Appleford said: “Every game is a big game at the moment because everyone is raising their game against us.
“This match is like a derby, but it’s a friendly rivalry.” Captain Dave Werthmann returns to bolster the home side’s defence, but Dave Cooper misses out through suspension.
Elsewhere in the Premier Division, Thetford Town travel to Haverhill Rovers tomorrow, while — in the First Division — Team Bury visit Brightlingsea Regent and Stowmarket Town travel to Long Melford (all 3pm).
