Norwich United entertain promotion-chasing Potters Bar Town this afternoon looking to build on Tuesday night's impressive 5-0 victory over a second string King's Lynn Town in the Norfolk Senior Cup.

The Planters will be hoping for all three points following an undeserved late goal at league leaders AFC Hornchurch last Saturday which brought to an end their seven-match unbeaten run.

The Scholars will be no pushover – they have dropped just two points in their last five games, including wins over Barking, Bowers & Pitsea and Maldon & Tiptree, who they beat 3-0 on Tuesday evening. That win put the Scholars up to third, just four points behind Bowers & Pitsea with two games in hand.

Steve Eastaugh will be hoping to field his full-strength side as the Planters look to keep a cushion between themselves and bottom-placed Cheshunt. However, Shaun Wones is an injury doubt, but Charlie Hitch is available after being cup-tied on Tuesday.
