Catching up on fixture backlogs may influence the tightest of races for the Sterry Cup.

Brandon are second to the Shannocks on goal difference after an excellent 2-0 win at Loddon United.

Acle United, in third, could not follow suit and had to settle for a 1-1 draw at home to fourth-placed Hempnall.

Paul Cook scored the only goal in last season's champions Wroxham Reserves' win at Beccles Town and the Yachtsmen are now third bottom.

Saturday sees Sheringham at home to fourth-bottom Beccles Town while Brandon host Acle and Hempnall are at home to Loddon among the top clubs.
