This week, we have been urging Norwich City fans to root through their cupboards and drawers and pull out their vintage Colman's City shirts, worn by the club in the late 1990s.

The idea is part of our 'They MUST Be Saved' campaign, which we launched in response to the news Britvic are looking to close its factory in the city.

In light of this company's decision, Unilever - producers of Colman's Mustard - too announced it would be reviewing its status in Norwich.

With game day upon us, City fans have already been Tweeting us photographs of themselves with Colman's shirt primed ready for the Carrow Road contest.

Throughout the day, we will have petitions at every Eastern Daily Press/Evening News goody bag stand in the city, as fans make their way to the game.

We will also be collecting your comments and taking photographs as we look to show that we stand together as a city and pile pressure on both Britvic and Unilever.
