It’s Ipswich v Norwich on final day of season
- Credit: Submitted
After being totally outclassed by Diss last week, Norwich have a chance to finish the season on a positive note and potentially move up a few places in the London Two North table tomorrow.
They travel to take on an Ipswich side who are consigned to finish third from bottom whatever happens, with Norwich currently sitting one place above them and with other teams in their sights.
Ipswich have gained seven losing bonus points this season, indicating they have had some close games and they will be keen to sign off with a win against their long-term rivals.
They are always a force to be reckoned with on home turf and will have noted Norwich's indifferent form of late.
Coach Jonny O'Brien said: 'We were beaten in every aspect of the game on Saturday against Diss (which finished 5-73). They showed why they've won the league.

The only two aspects of the game I could be pleased were the boys never gave up and the ten minute spell after half-time.
'Looking forward we now have to put in a performance to be proud of against Ipswich.

'It has been a sharp learning curve this season with a large number of new young players introduced into the team. I'm really excited about what we can achieve next season.'
Jonny Wheater and Deane Anderton are still absent but it is hopeful that Captain Pip Scott may be available to play.
Having turned on the style at Beeston Hyrne champions Diss return to Mackenders for their final league match of the season.
It will be a chance for players, officials and supporters alike to celebrate a triumphant campaign but the focus will be very much on keeping up the good work against sixth placed visitors Rochford Hundred.
In Eastern Counties One Wymondham need to beat visitors Wisbech to be sure of finishing second behind champions Thetford.
Should they slip up then Crusaders would move above them with a home victory over Bury St Edmunds III.
Thetford travel to Colchester III for their final game while bottom two Beccles and Swaffham host Ipswich YM and Newmarket, who have a chance of finishing second, respectively.
