FEARS that Kirkley & Pakefield's first team game tomorrow (Saturday) against Haverhill Rovers may have to be switched, due to the Hamlet Croft surface being possibly unfit, were dismissed today and K&P will now travel to their fellow Suffolk counterparts.
Returning to action once more after another blank weekend due to a blanket of snow, Stewart Larter and Jon Reynolds' fifth-placed side will take on a team in equally good form.
14th-placed Haverhill have suffered only one defeat in five and that was against the league leaders. The home side are likely to be looking forward to this challenge, having not lost at Hamlet Croft since early September and they beat fourth placed Stanway last time out.
But with games in hand, a resurgent K&P can still close in on the top sides provided they win their games in hand. The Royals will be looking to extend their winning sequence to four and their unbeaten run to five tomorrow.
