Manager Kevin Watson will hope to build on Chatham's dramatic midweek victory when his side take on AFC Sudbury.

Chatham will travel to Suffolk in buoyant mood for Saturday's Ryman League Division 1 North game following Tuesday night's 3-2 win against Dereham.

There was late drama at Maidstone Road when Chatham let a lead slip before coming from behind to stun the high-flying visitors.

Dereham scored on 78 and 82 minutes to snatch a 2-1 lead. Chats, who had led since the 12th minute, could have folded but Austin Gacheru scored his second goal to restore parity and Kieran McCann hit a 90th-minute winner.

Watson said: “I slaughtered the players the other day but I’ve got nothing but admiration for them after Tuesday. They showed why I brought them to the club.”

Midfielder Matt Solly will miss the trip to AFC Sudbury through suspension, while goalkeeper Jack Bradshaw and defender Brad Potter are also unavailable.
