Buy-back the only option for Leeds

Norwich City are appealing to fans to consider the 'buy-back' option this weekend to ensure that there are no wasted seats for the big top-of-the-table clash against Leeds.

Norwich City are appealing to fans to consider the 'buy-back' option this weekend to ensure that there are no wasted seats for the big top-of-the-table clash against Leeds.

The full house signs have been up for weeks now, but City - the best supported home side in League One - are pulling out the stops to ensure as many City fans as possible get to see the run-in.

Carrow Road is likely to be sold out for the remaining five home games, with Saturday's game against Leeds the most pressing concern, with the visitors taking their full allocation of 2,200 seats, leaving City trying to squeeze in the rest.

'The club is appealing to all season ticket holders who are unable to attend the Leeds match to put their seat up for buy-back so it can be sold to another City supporter,' said a statement.

'For those who do return their ticket for this match, the club will guarantee a credit against a future season ticket purchase (�10 adults for adult season ticket holders, �7 for concessions and �3 under-12s).'

Tickets for the home game against Stockport on Easter Monday are on general sale, while those for the game against MK Dons will be available on Monday.
