With five games to be played in the space of 21 days in April, Lowestoft Town still have it all to play for in the battle for play-off places in the Pitching In Isthmian League North division.

Currently third - and still ideally placed to secure a potential home tie in the play-off semi final - The Trawlerboys will continue the crucial run in this weekend with a return to home comforts.

After four successive away matches in the league and cup - and six of their seven games in March being on the road - three of Lowestoft's last five league matches will now be at home.

This starts Saturday, as Jamie Godbold's men host 10th-placed Brentwood Town looking to bounce back from three successive league and cup defeats.

It comes after an eight-goal thriller at Park Drive as Maldon & Tiptree fought back from being behind at the interval to triumph 5-3.

Lowestoft included new signing Shaun Bammant in the starting line up after his registration deadline day signing.

Of the hitman's return, Blues boss Godbold said: "We're delighted.

"Bammo's presence and his experience in coming to a club that he knows at this time of the season will be vital.

"He is a winner and I think Bammo will be a really good addition for us."

Adam Hipperson's penalty and Jake Reed were on target for The Trawlerboys as they led 1-2 at half time, before the Essex side stunned them in the second half.

Although Reed made it 4-3, Maldon added a late fifth.

Third placed Lowestoft are now five points clear of Suffolk rivals Stowmarket Town in fourth - although Stowmarket have a game in hand - and nine points ahead of Felixstowe & Walton United, Heybridge Swifts and Grays Athletic in joint fifth.

Saturday's match at the Fosters Solicitors Community Stadium is a quick reunion with Brentwood after Lowestoft drew 2-2 with them on March 14.
