New signing Harry Barker goes in to the Norwich United squad for Saturday’s home game against Grays Athletic.

The Planters will be on a high after their 4-0 Norfolk Senior Cup semi-final win against Bostik North rivals Dereham Town on Wednesday.

However, they will have to put thoughts of the Carrow Road showpiece behind them as they try to pull further away from the one relegation spot. Manager Steve Eastaugh will be targeting the three home games this week as a chance to widen the margin over bottom team Romford and was quick to sign up Norwich-born Barker when Lowestoft Town released him at the start of the week.

Grays will prove tough opponents, having lost just once in their last nine games. A week ago they recorded a 3-1 home victory in the only game to survive the wintry conditions.
