Haverhill II allowed Framlingham II to get within two points of them with a goal difference only two worse off following their 4-0 Suffolk Premier Division defeat on Saturday (February 16).
They next play at fourth placed Ipswich IV on March 3 (10am).
They are third from bottom of the Suffolk Premier League – although not automatically relegated if finishing there, they would face a play off against the second team in Division One – currently Sudbury II.
Failure for them to pull away from the bottom three could them drop into Division One if they fail to win the play off of finish in the bottom two.
