Norwich United travel to Waltham Abbey today to play their fourth game in eight days.

Steve Eastaugh’s men must overcome what has been an interesting week, but having picked up just one point from the three games, they need to arrest that run quickly as they currently sit just six points above Romford with both sides having 10 games remaining.

A crumb of comfort came from Thursday’s 2-1 defeat at home to Hertford Town, with prolific striker Matt Blake scoring what was to prove a late consolation goal in the first game of his hastily arranged loan deal from Leiston.

Eastaugh will be hoping that he will fire a few more in between now and the end of the season.

Andy Eastaugh and Sam Applegate will be hoping to overcome injuries which kept them both out of Thursday’s encounter with a Waltham Abbey side that have won just one of their last 13 games and went down 2-0 when they visited Plantation Park in October.
