Ipswich Wanderers new manager Mark Benterman will officially take charge of the team for the first time when they host Godmanchester Rovers at Humber Doucy Lane as he looks to lift them up the Premier table from their current 19th position, writes Phil Griffiths.

He faces a difficult task in his opening game with the visitors having strengthened their side in recent week, currently sitting in 11th spot on a three match winning run, with two of those games away from home.

Benterman will be hoping for plenty of vocal support from the side as he looks to turn their fortunes around.

Debenham, under their new management, host league new boys Norwich CBS, where a win would lift them above their visitors who sit 8th on the same points but with a better goal difference.
