Norwich United entertain Long Stratton, playing in their first ever Norfolk Senior Cup quarter final, tonight at Plantation Park (7.45pm kick-off).

Long Stratton have won through three home ties to reach this stage and began with a 3-1 win over Aylsham in September. The second round saw them record a convincing 5-1 home win against Holt United before a 4-2 victory over Stalham Town in the third round. The Planters meanwhile won through by taking revenge over the team that beat them in last season's final when they beat Dereham Town 4-2 after extra time at Aldiss Park.

The Planters will be looking to get back to winning ways after Liam Jackson's 75th minute equaliser rescued a point against Great Wakering Rovers. Steve Eastaugh will welcome back brother Andy tonight, the Planters' skipper missing the weekend's game whilst serving a one match suspension.
