SOCCER: Ipswich Wanderers must be looking over their shoulder at the recent points haul of Swaffham. The Norfolk side, who looked doomed for most of the season after promotion last May, have overtaken Felixstowe and Walton United.

IPSWICH Wanderers must be looking over their shoulder at the recent points haul of Swaffham.

The Norfolk side, who looked doomed for most of the season after promotion last May, have overtaken Felixstowe and Walton United.

The latter are now bottom of the Jewson League Premier Division table, and desperately need a win at Lowestoft tomorrow.

Likewise, third-from-bottom Wanderers badly need a victory when they travel to Newmarket Town. This would relieve the pressure on them considerably.

Stowmarket could hold the key. They have Wanderers and Swaffham still to play, but hold no grudges after their match against Wanderers at Greens Meadow earlier this season was curtailed when an assistant referee was injured and Stowmarket wanted to carry on.

Tomorrow Stowmarket are at home to Gorleston. Woodbridge Town have no game, while the destination of the championship will go a long way to be decided when Wroxham play AFC Sudbury.
