Norwich United will be looking to make the most of two home games in four days as they aim to build on a fantastic 4-1 win at Canvey Island on Tuesday.

Nathan Stewart opened the scoring and Adam Hipperson bagged a hat-trick as the Planters moved out of the relegation spot with Romford losing at Witham Town.

Manager Steve Eastaugh was rewarded for a big selection call, bringing in young keeper Billy Johnson who saved a penalty 15 minutes from time – a goal then could have led to a nervy finish. The Planters' defence were resolute throughout and the team should be full of confidence ahead of this afternoon's visit from AFC Sudbury.

The two sides shared the points in a 2-2 draw in early January and the visitors are sitting comfortably in mid-table after grabbing a late equaliser at Bury Town on Thursday, having lost 3-1 at home to Ware last Saturday. The Planters will host play-off challengers Heybridge Swifts on Tuesday evening.
