There was some good Saturday morning news for Braintree Town and Witham Town fans as their respective clubs' games both saw positive early pitch inspections.

The Iron are hosting Hyde in the Skrill Premier at the Amlin Stadium, while Witham have a Ryman League division one north trip to Aveley.

Both games kick-off at 3pm and both clubs will be grateful for the hard work of groundstaff that has made it possible to get the games on.

Witham and Braintree have lengthy fixture backlogs due to postponed games, so will be relieved that they don't have to add another to the list of rearranged dates.
