Norwich City will need to end Gillingham's unbeaten start to the campaign if they are to return to winning ways.

The Canaries flew out of the traps, winning both of their opening matches in 2016/17.

But their progress has been knocked off track with back-to-back defeats, the most recent of which came on Sunday, by three goals to nil, at AFC Wimbledon.

Tomorrow, the Canaries turn their attentions to the Women's Premier League (WPL) Cup as they look to get their season back on track.

Head coach Scott Emmerson was looking for a response against the Dons last time out, having been hugely disappointed by his side's WPL South East Division One (SED1) showing against Cambridge United.

Yet it didn't arrive and things are unlikely to get any easier at the home of Chatham.

The Gills – who play in the same league as Norwich – go into the first round match having not tasted a defeat in their four matches so far.
