Football: Promotion race hots up for Stowmarket Town

Ridgeons League First Division leaders Cambridge University Press gave Stowmarket Town an unexpected midweek boost.
They suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat at Godmanchester and failed to build on their four-point lead at the top of the table.
Stow have three games in hand but now have a cluster of four teams within four points of them, some from fewer games.
And on Saturday, despite a 4-0 win in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, Town need to avoid complacency against a Halstead team who had won four matches in a row and six in seven before suffering defeats against Gorleston and, last week, 6-0 at Whitton.
Stow's 4-0 defeat at Gorleston last week was their first in the league since October and they will be keen to bounce back.
In the Kingsley Healthcare Suffolk & Ipswich League, the pick of the action is in the Senior Division where bottom team Haughley United will be fired up to earn their first win of the season at second-bottom Coplestonians.
There are two local teams in home action seeking a place in the semi-finals of the Club Colours Cup. Cedars Park Reserves take on Claydon Reserves, while Old Newton United A meet Stonham Aspal A.
