WROXHAM hope for a sweet result when they host the Jam-makers of Tiptree in Saturday's Ridgeons Premier Division clash.
On Saturday Wroxham visited Woodbridge and lost 3-0.
Without four suspended players and one injured, Wroxham had to cobble together a side, which gave them a chance of field-testing some promising youngsters.
For Wroxham, this defeat was the price they paid for a bout of indiscipline since the turn of the year.
Although they dominated the first period from almost start to finish, they failed to find the net, while Woodbridge tested the Yachtsmen's keeper just once.
Wroxham were busy around the home penalty box where McCabe twice lofted over the bar, as did Howes. Wroxham won successive corners but Harley's header was clutched easily by home keeper Rose. Woodbridge's goal came from Brimstead whose long cross from the right sailed too close to McAnally, who fielded easily.

Wroxham's best chance so far came a minute before the break when Self set up Danny White who, only 10 yards out, cleared the bar with only the keeper to beat.
Wroxham appeared to have left their concentration in the dressing room as in the 49th minute they allowed the home side to break the deadlock.
Snell put in a mazy run down the centre of the field and the Wroxham defence seemed mesmerised as Aaron Churchyard received the ball to beat McAnally from 10 yards.
Wroxham attempted to get back and a Harley cross from the left was met by an over-stretched Self, whose effort was prodded past the post. The young Yachtsmen who had been brought in found the higher pace of Ridgeons League football too much and they never really adjusted.
Woodbridge nearly bagged a second goal when Driver was allowed a free shot, but he steered the ball two yards wide.
Woodbridge went two up in the 70th minute when Lewis Driver latched onto the ball outside the 18-yard box and delivered a perfect lob over the keeper.
Wroxham now were a well-beaten side and conceded a third goal, netted by Jordan Seaman, who won the area battle on the edge of the six-yard box.
