Norwich United face injury problems ahead of their trip to Barking.

With the Planters now only ahead of bottom club Romford on goal difference, Steve Eastaugh might have to do without the services of loanee Matt Blake and the just returned Matt Brown, and with Andy Eastaugh, Ben Jones and Charlie Hitch all unavailable the Planters will be grateful that Adam Hipperson is back in the squad, the leading scorer having missed Wednesday's defeat at Romford due to work commitments.

The Planters will be looking to put an end to a run of nine games without a victory, especially with rivals picking up wins in the last week.

Barking have lost five of their last seven games, slipping out of the play-off picture in the process in their first season at Step Four for over 20 years, and went down 3-1 at Maldon & Tiptree on Tuesday. In the reverse fixture in November the clubs shared the points after Hipperson had given the Planters a half-time lead.
