There's an important match at the foot of the Gibbs Denley East Anglian League tomorrow, with the bottom two coming face to face at the Victory Ground.

Basement side Bury St Edmunds go into the match against visitors Norwich 31 points adrift and desperately need a win to avoid being cast adrift.

Norwich, on the other hand, will be aiming to put some distance between themselves and the one relegation slot and will certainly go into the crunch game in good heart after an excellent victory last Saturday.

Ashley Watson's men went into their match against title chasing Great Witchingham at Ingham very much as the underdogs but turned the form book upside down with a solid all-round performance that secured a three wicket success.

Vauxhall Mallards, currently third from bottom 23 points above Norwich, will certainly be watching events at Bury closely but will be focusing on their own task, a tough away match at Copdock and Ipswichian.
