Norwich United go into today’s fixture against Hertford Town at Plantation Park looking to strengthen their position after a fine 3-1 win at Ware halted a run of three consecutive defeats.

The Planters have pulled away from the bottom of the table, opening up a gap of seven points to bottom-placed Romford, and with Steve Eastaugh’s men visiting Ship Lane on Wednesday two victories would see them move into a relatively safe position with only one team being relegated at the end of the season.

Eastaugh will be encouraged by last week’s ruthless performance and is able to name an unchanged squad, with Liam Jackson recovering from the injury which forced him off during the first half last Saturday.

Hertford Town will be looking to improve on recent form, the Blues having picked up just three points in their last four games courtesy of a 90th-minute winner against Romford. Last Saturday they went down 1-0 at home to Haringey Borough.
