Harleston Town aiming to put 6-1 thrashing behind them

PUBLISHED: 10:05 05 January 2018 | UPDATED: 10:05 05 January 2018


Harleston Town will be looking to get a painful defeat out of their systems when the Anglian Combination season resumes after a two-week break.

The Premier Division leaders were hammered 6-1 by third-placed Norwich Ceyms in their final match before Christmas, having dropped just two points all season before that.

Town remain seven points clear at the top, but can’t afford to take anything for granted with Ceyms and fourth-placed Mulbarton Wanderers both having played fewer games.

The leaders have what looks like an ideal opportunity to bounce back at bottom side Reepham, who have picked up just five points from their 15 games so far.

Meanwhile, Ceyms have a tough match at Bradenham Wanderers, who are a point above them in the table having played three more games.

Mulbarton, who would be just one point behind Harleston if they won all their matches in hand, are at home to mid-table Mattishall.
