Norwich United will attempt to avoid an FA Cup hangover when they return to league action.

The Planters' sensational start to the 2016/17 campaign – their first in the Ryman League – was halted on Saturday when they exited the cup by losing 2-1 at home to same-level Histon.

But another victory this afternoon, at home to Haringey Borough, would keep things more than moving in the right direction at Plantation Park.

Steve Eastaugh's side have won two from two in Division One North as they continue to enjoy the positivity surrounding their summer promotion.

However, Borough will present a tough test, having comfortably dispatched Dereham Town on the opening day.

United are one of six sides in the 24-team standings to possess an early-season 100pc record and have conceded only one goal in their two matches so far – where they have scored five goals, proving they can cope with the summer exit of talismanic striker Matt Blake.
