Norwich United's Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division waiting game could finally be over this evening.

The Planters have dominated their defence of the Eastern Counties set-up's top-flight, looking nothing short of champions-elect all season.

A 31st win of the season on Saturday at home to fourth-placed Felixstowe & Walton United would have been enough to clinch back-to-back titles. But unfortunately the rain curtailed that fixture.

United's patience will pay off tonight however if they win at Walsham-le-Willows to get the job done.

A victory would ensure Godmanchester Rovers, third, no longer have a mathematical chance of creating a sensational comeback.

Elsewhere, relegation-threatened duo Fakenham Town, at home to Mildenhall Town, and Swaffham Town – who visit Ipswich Wanderers – will be in action.

In the First Division, King's Lynn Town Reserves travel to Haverhill Borough.
