Norwich United go into Saturday’s game against second-placed Bowers & Pitsea without leading scorer Adam Hipperson, who serves the first of his two-match ban for picking up 10 bookings.

The Planters are still looking for points to secure safety – they currently sit five points above Romford with three games in hand on the bottom-placed team.

The hosts will have plenty of opportunity to pick up points this week with three further games in the following seven days, visiting Witham Town on Tuesday, hosting Hertford Town on Thursday before travelling to Waltham Abbey next Saturday.

The Planters battled away for a hard-earned point last Saturday as they came back twice in a 2-2 draw, with Hipperson and Nathan Stewart on target. Their visitors are eight points clear in the second automatic promotion place and beat Romford 4-0 on Tuesday evening – but the Planters returned from the reverse fixture with a 3-1 victory in September.
