Norwich United travel to Ware today in a big game at the bottom end of the table.

Both sides will be looking for three points as they sit precariously just above the bottom two.

With Cheshunt and Romford both losing on Tuesday, the Planters, who suffered a second consecutive postponement, sit five points above the relegation spot. With their opponents today just three points above, manager Steve Eastaugh will be hopeful of closing that gap with a first league away win since September.

Skipper Andy Eastaugh should finally be able to make his 200th appearance and the Planters have Rian Carroll and Adam Probert back available as they look to bounce back to winning ways.

Ware recorded back to back wins over Witham Town and Romford in January but have just picked up one point in their last three games and fell to a 6-1 defeat at Heybridge Swifts last Saturday. The two teams fought out a goalless draw at Plantation Park in December.
