Norwich United travel to AFC Sudbury for the first time in 10 years, with influential skipper Andy Eastaugh facing a late fitness test.

Eastaugh suffered an early injury in the New Year's Day 1-1 draw with Mildenhall Town, Nathan Stewart securing the point with an 89th-minute equaliser.

Manager Steve Eastaugh will be looking for more of that never-say-die spirit as his team look to continue their recent form which has moved them off the bottom of the table, and with Romford starting to pick up wins and Cheshunt securing the services of a new manager, there is no room for complacency.

The Planters have lost just one of their last eight league games and will be hoping to continue that run against Sudbury. The hosts have won only one of their last 10 games, 1-0 at Mildenhall Town on Boxing Day, and slipped to 15th place in the process, although they are unbeaten in their last three games.

Dereham Town are at home to Tilbury.
