Thurlow Nunn League: Norwich United aim for fourth successive win and Fakenham Town eye top spot
06:30 04 January 2014
Norwich United go in search of their fourth successive league victory today when they host Stanway Rovers at Plantation Park.
A 3-0 victory against Erith Town in the third round of the FA Vase sparked a delightful December for Damian Hilton’s side, going on to win all three of their Thurlow Nunn Premier fixtures.
The run has seen the Planters rise to eighth in the table and level on 36 points with the three teams above them, so they take on 14th-placed Stanway with the potential to jump to fifth if they win again.
Gorleston have a good chance to put pressure on the top three as they look to build on an unbeaten December and a record of seven wins from their last nine matches.
The Greens travel to bottom-of-the-table Woodbridge Town, who have won just one of their 21 matches so far this season.
Elsewhere in the Premier Division, Diss Town host Kirkley & Pakefield and Thetford travel to Ely City, who are just one place below them at the wrong end of the table.
In the First Division, Great Yarmouth Town can potentially jump four places into fifth place if they can beat Debenham LC at the Wellesley.
Fakenham Town could top the table if they can win at sixth-placed Saffron Walden Town, due to their far superior goal difference to leaders Whitton United, although Whitton host lowly Downham Town.
