IPSWICH East Suffolk have a good chance of securing their first win of the season when they take on bottom club Long Sutton tomorrow.
With one point from their first two games, IES will want to make home advantage at Tuddenham Road count against a side who have yet to get off the mark.
James Bouttell returns to the side in place of Andy Keedle and victory in Premier Division A of the Printwize East League would send them to leaders Crostyx the following day in better heart for the second round of the English Hockey cup.
Youngsters Tim Caston, Ian Swallow and Geoff Reed are all knocking on the door of a first team place and can underline their potential for the second team against Bourne seconds.
Teenager James Klug, who has been added to the third team in a bid to pep up their hunt for goals, will be aiming to make his mark at Wivenhoe while the fourths bid to record their second successive win of the season against Braintree thirds.
