Norwich United first team captain Andrew Eastaugh is set to make his 200th appearance today as the Planters travel to Witham Town hoping to arrest a run of three consecutive league defeats.

Eastaugh has been a key part of the squad which won consecutive Thurlow Nunn league titles before helping the Planters establish themselves at Step 4 now under the management of his brother Steve.

Liam Jackson is still an injury doubt having missed the midweek 3-1 defeat at Heybridge Swifts and Adam Probert is still missing through illness. Steve Eastaugh's men find themselves just five points and two places above Cheshunt, who currently hold the only relegation spot and have a game in hand of the Planters.

Witham have picked up only one point in their last three games, a 1-1 draw at Cheshunt, and on Saturday lost 1-0 at Bury Town; they sit in 12th position and won 3-1 at Plantation Park earlier this season.
