Norwich look to find a path out of danger

Norwich have the chance to rise off the bottom of the table for the first time since May 7 when they travel to fellow strugglers Burwell in the East Anglian Premier League tomorrow.

Paul Wiseman's side currently trail the Cambridgeshire club by 22 points, with both teams having won just once this season. The return match at Postwick earlier in the season was a tight affair, with Burwell edging to a two-wicket win.

Leaders Swardeston, like Horsford, have a busy weekend, with the two teams facing each other in the Norfolk Twenty20 final tonight before embarking on league action tomorrow and Carter Cup semi-final duty on Sunday.

Swardeston head to Bury tomorrow with skipper Mark Thomas demanding an improved performance from his batsmen after nervy displays in their last two victories: 'If we bat like we have done in the last couple of weeks I don't think we'll win anything,' warned Thomas. 'We've scraped home in both games but thankfully we've bowled really well.'

After two defeats on the road, Horsford make a welcome return to Manor Park, where they have won all six of their league games to date, as they face Clacton.
