Norwich City Under-23s' match against Newcastle United on Sunday has been moved to a midday kick-off at Colney.

The Premier League Two Division Two match had initially been scheduled for the regular 2pm Sunday slot at Carrow Road in which U23s games have largely been played this season.

However, with City's under-18s playing their FA Youth Cup fourth round match against Derby County at Carrow Road on Friday night (7pm) it was decided to move the U23s game to Colney.

Matt Gill's development squad extended their unbeaten run to four matches with a 3-1 away win against Stoke City on Monday night, lifting them to seventh in the table, thanks to goals from Todd Cantwell, Pierre Fonkeu and Devonte Aransibia.

We apologise for any confusion caused by our report of that game in yesterday's edition which stated the next match was still a 2pm kick-off at Carrow Road. For full details of the fixture, see canaries.co.uk.
