Godmanchester Rovers manager Matt Clements is targeting an unbeaten climax to the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division season.

Third-placed Rovers saw their 10-game league winning streak come to an end when held to a goalless draw at Felixstowe & Walton last Saturday before an Easter Monday home clash against Newmarket was postponed.

Rovers have nine matches remaining - starting with a trip to Whitton today - as they bid to earn promotion.

Their own ground has provisionally passed an FA inspection to meet higher-level criteria, but their fate is likely to lie in the hands of leaders Norwich United unless they can wipe out a 16-point gap.

Clements said: “The title is Norwich United’s to lose, but they could slip up and we have to be ready to pounce if that does happen.

“The aim is to go unbeaten from here. If we do that we will be in a good position to repeat the runners-up finish of last season.

“The club were 26 points behind Norwich United last term and the aim is to be considerably closer this time around.

“Promotion would be a fantastic achievement, but that will probably depend on others.”

Norwich United and second-placed Stanway passed their ground-grading checks earlier this week.
