Norfolk have everything to play for going into the final two matches of the Anglian League season.
Kevin Webb's team will go into next month's home match against Lincolnshire on top of the table following their superb 9-3 victory at Leicestershire and Rutland.
But there will be absolutely no margin for error at Royal Cromer on Sunday, August 6 with four counties level on four points, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire also having won two and lost one so far.
Norfolk lead the way by virtue of the best points difference so they will need to win convincingly against Lincolnshire to ensure they stay top going into the final match at Cambridgeshire in September.
Webb was able to name a strong team for last month's trip to Luffenham Heath and it showed as they won on unfamiliar territory with something to spare.

At lunch, Suffolk led with 3.5 points and Norfolk and Cambridgeshire shared second place on 2.5.
Norfolk's top pair David Pattrick and John Tavener fought tooth and nail to secure a half against the Cambs top pair while Mark Skipper and Ian Hogg and Doug Gilchrist, partnering Tony Richards, secured Norfolk's other morning points.
In the afternoon, Cambs stepped up a gear, winning 4.5 points to run out easy winners. The only half point they dropped was to Gilchrist and Richards who at dormie three down produced some fantastic golf to secure a half. Other winners for Norfolk were Adrian Myhill and Rob Webb who had a comfortable win over their Bedford counterparts. Cambs won the event on seven points followed by Suffolk (5.5), Norfolk (4) and Bedfordshire (3.5).
