SOHAM Town Rangers are set to go into Saturday's six-pointer with last season's champions Wroxham with a near full-strength squad.

Versatile midfielder Scott Carter, struggling with a groin injury, is a major doubt.

Captain Peter Hinde is having wisdom teeth taken out in the week but is expected to play, while long-term absentee Nick Reeson is unavailable.

Soham sit second in the Ridgeons Premier Division table, level on points with third-placed Wroxham, but 10 goals better on goal difference.

Soham manager Ian Benjamin said: "I've not seen much of Wroxham this season but I don't need to because I already know enough about them. They are a very good footballing side who like to get at teams, but they can be shaky at the back when put under pressure.

"The lads are well up for it and we're just going to get at them, play to our strengths and treat it like any other game."

Wroxham, who pipped Mildenhall to the Ridgeons Premier Division title last season, have been through indifferent form over the last two months and seen manager Damian Hilton resign and then be reappointed within a fortnight.

The u-turn came about after Hilton, 30, had originally planned to resume his playing career. He then decided he would only play if needed.

Benjamin said: "They've come through a sticky patch but won their last match 3-0 against Felixstowe and look to be back to their best. It will be a tough game for us.
