Dates for two important upcoming cup clashes have been confirmed for Norwich City Under-23s.

The young Canaries will play Fulham at Colney this Friday, in the first knockout round of the Premier League Cup.

The last-16 tie will kick-off at 2.30pm, with City reaching that stage after finishing second behind Portsmouth in Group D, after beating Everton home and away, before thrashing Wolves 5-0 to seal their progress.

The date for the U23s' semi-final clash with Sunderland at Carrow Road in the Premier League International Cup has also been confirmed.

That tie is to be played at 7pm on Friday, March 31. Over 2,500 fans watched City beat the second team of Dinamo Zagreb at Carrow Road last month and another big crowd is expected, with Swansea or Porto awaiting the winners in the final.
