Bourne Town are close to confirming their improvement from last season.
The Wakes have already matched the tally of eight wins in Division One since Rafa Mazzarella took over at Abbey Lawn last summer.
Three more points would put them level with last term’s final total.
They should feel confident of achieving that at home to Burton Park Wanderers on Saturday.
The Northamptonshire club have only picked up two wins and they lost against Bourne just over two weeks ago when Harley Williams scored the only goal.
Since then Bourne have also beaten Rushden & Higham United by a single strike so they will be looking for a hat-trick of wins this weekend.
