Wake-up call for Norwich

The heavy defeat at Westcliff last week is now history and Norwich must use it as a wake-up call for the rest of the season while looking forward to returning the favour in the home fixture in March.

The heavy defeat at Westcliff last week is now history and Norwich must use it as a wake-up call for the rest of the season while looking forward to returning the favour in the home fixture in March.

Norwich will be looking to get back to winning ways tomorrow when they host Colchester at Beeston Hyrne. Colchester have not had a great start to their season, with three losses out of three. However, this cannot lead to complacency as Colchester will be desperate to get some points. Injuries to Niall Hayton-Williams and John Carpenter are big setbacks, but the return of Ives into the backrow will help matters. O'Sullivan returns from suspension and will have the opportunity to impress and earn his first team spot.

Adnitt gets his first start of the season in the front row and the elusive A Harris returns.

Saturday cannot come quickly enough - but players must get into their minds now that nothing other than a win can be acceptable.
