Lowestoft Town FC's play-off push should become a lot clearer as a "huge weekend" awaits them.

Jamie Godbold's men remain in third place in the Pitching In Isthmian League North division, after last week's scheduled home match with Brentwood was called off due to a waterlogged pitch after an inspection.

With five league games to now be played in 14 days, a trip to Basildon on Saturday is quickly followed by a bank holiday bonanza on Monday as the Blues host Suffolk rivals Bury Town at the Fosters Solicitors Community Stadium.

After the weekend and midweek matches, third placed Lowestoft are still five points clear of Suffolk rivals Stowmarket Town in fourth - but they now have a game in hand on their Suffolk rivals after they lost their last two matches.

Lowestoft are also six points ahead of Felixstowe & Walton United and Heybridge Swifts in joint fifth, as the crucial run-in intensifies.

Still ideally placed to secure a potential home tie in the play-off semi final, Blues boss Jamie Godbold said: "This is a huge weekend.

"Its five games to go in 14 days, and apart from Owen Murphy - who is a week away - we have got a full squad to choose from.

"Over the course of the weekend's fixtures we should be really clear of what is required in securing a play-off place.

"I think results over the weekend and in midweek have been quite kind to us, without us playing a game.

"We now go into two tough games with a full squad knowing they are two matches that are winnable."

A trip to a "big and strong" Basildon outfit on Saturday - who are 13th - comes ahead of a Suffolk derby at home on bank holiday Monday and "a bit of a revenge mission" against 11th placed Bury Town, 3pm KO, after the recent cup defeat.

Godbold said: "I hope we will come out with a good, positive result from Saturday's game knowing we can then bounce into the Bury game 48 hours later with plenty of confidence."
