Lowestoft Town take another look at former Norwich City winger Robert Eagle
Former Norwich City winger Robert Eagle is again set to feature for Lowestoft Town as the Trawlerboys entertain Canvey Island in the quarter-finals of The Alan Boon Cup at Crown Meadow tonight (7.45pm).
Blues director of football Craig Fleming is keen to take another look at the 24-year-old after he impressed in the club's 2-0 win against Kirkley & Pakefield in the Suffolk Premier Cup last Tuesday.
Adrian Forbes is recovering well from the thigh injury he picked up last month and could also feature and Fleming is looking forward to having a fully fit squad to choose from over the coming weeks.
'It's not happened too often but hopefully players are coming back at the right time for us,' he said. 'The cup match gives us another chance to get some minutes into players and we go into every game looking to win.'
Sixteen-year-old Harvey Hodd, who made his debut for the Blues last week, is out through concussion but Fleming has been impressed with how the youngster has fitted into the Lowestoft dressing room.

'It can be intimidating for a young lad but he is a confident person and if you're a good player like he is then you almost get instant respect from the other players,' he said. 'He played really well last week before the injury – for me he was one of the best players on the pitch. His technical ability is very good and, although he is just a boy really, he didn't look out of place.'
