We travel to Leeds United on the back of our best 45 minutes of the season in last week’s 3-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

If someone had told me after 30 minutes of last Saturday’s game that City would run out 3-1 winners I would undoubtedly have laughed in their face.

Norwich United go into today’s tough home game against third placed Canvey Island without a league win in nine games.

Disappointing though the result was at Eton Manor last week it was no surprise that North Walsham struggled with a much changed squad.

Several horses with wins under their belts at Fakenham this season, look set to return to the north Norfolk course for Tuesday’s six-race card (December 19).

With weekend frost and heavy rain to contend with, only a handful of the scheduled games took place in the league, and those who did play deserve great credit.

Age hardly seemed to matter at King’s Lynn Mountain Bike Club’s Winter Enduros at West Bilney.

My passion for East Anglian rivers is undimmed and East Anglian roach are my obsession but just sometimes I feel the need to get out more.

The defending Norfolk County Triples champions put up a determined effort to retain their title at Hingham Sports & Social Club but were beaten by just one shot as David Lamb of Halvergate and Bob Carter’s Jamie Forster & Gary Best lifted the title.

Outgunned in the forwards and lacking precision, North Walsham stayed in touch until the final 20 minutes before eventually succumbing to Eton Manor by seven tries to three.

Holt were edged out in a tightly fought contest against fellow top four side Ely after being outscored by four tries to three.

The large home crowd were hoping to see a repeat of the Woodbridge win over Southwold in the Suffolk Cup the previous weekend.

If the league leaders came to Norwich thinking that a visit to Beeston Hyrne was going to be a pushover they were in for a rude shock.

Diss produced a performance that again highlighted the fact that when playing at their best they can compete with the most accomplished sides in the league.

Wymondham got back to winning ways with a convincing victory at the league’s bottom side, who remain on minus five points.

If ever Daniel Farke’s charges needed to put in a shift for him it was during the second period against Sheffield Wednesday.

Norwich United will be hoping the old adage that luck evens itself out over the course of the season comes true after 10-man Grays Athletic were awarded a 49th penalty with no-one, other than the referee, quite sure why.

A dreadful first half performance in which Dereham Town gifted Bowers three goals cost them the points at Aldiss Park.

So much for my career as a clairvoyant.

You didn’t expect this season to be plain sailing, did you?

Norwich United travel to Grays Athletic today looking to build on a four-match unbeaten run.
