Norwich United will be looking to put their FA Cup exit behind them when they travel to Wivenhoe Town today.

The Planters have enjoyed a 100pc start to their Thurlow Nunn Premier Division campaign and are expected to pick up three points against a side who, by contrast, have lost their opening two. Damian Hilton's outfit are among the group trying to catch pre-season title favourites, and early pace-setters, Gorleston. The Greens beat Diss Town in the week to record their third straight win. And they head to Felixstowe & Walton United in confident mood having progressed in the FA Cup last week with a 2-1 victory over United Counties League Deeping Rangers.

Thetford Town and Kirkley & Pakefield, who both also made it through to the preliminary round of the country's premiere cup competition are on the road. Kirkley visit Hadleigh United while Thetford travel to Newmarket Town. Richard Daniels' new-look Diss Town are at home to Haverhill Rovers – who have seven points from a possible nine.

In the First Division, AFC Sudbury Reserves host Dereham Town Reserves while Fakenham Town – who hammered struggling Downham Town 6-0 in midweek – will be looking for more goals against Cornard. Swaffham Town host Ipswich Wanderers, Great Yarmouth Town travel to Halstead Town while in the UCL, Wisbech Town entertain Huntingdon Town.
