Sell-out clash not biggest of season

The visit of second-placed Leeds United will not bring League One leaders Norwich City their biggest gate of the season, despite being a sell-out. The attendance at Saturday's promotion showdown is likely to be about 25,400, just below the 25,506 who watched the 2-1 home win over Hartlepool on January 30.

The visit of second-placed Leeds United will not bring League One leaders Norwich City their biggest gate of the season, despite being a sell-out.

The attendance at Saturday's promotion showdown is likely to be about 25,400, just below the 25,506 who watched the 2-1 home win over Hartlepool on January 30.

The shortfall is due to the "safety configuration" of seating - with the club needing to leave space between 2,250 Leeds fans and home supporters in the Jarrold Stand.

Season ticket-holders not planning to attend Saturday's game are urged to return their ticket under the "buy back" scheme, where the club will guarantee a credit against a future season ticket purchase (�10 for adult season ticket-holders, �7 for concessions and �3 for under-12s).
