Having faced top-of-the-table AFC Hornchurch a week ago, Norwich United travel to second-placed Bowers & Pitsea on Saturday still looking for their first win of the season and rooted to the bottom of the table.
It’s another tough contest for Steve Eastaugh’s men, but after picking up their first point in their 4-4 draw at Tilbury in their last away game, the Planters can travel with some hope.
Nathan Stewart comes back into the squad after injury, having completed 90 minutes in the U21s’ 2-2 draw at Swaffham Town on Tuesday. Striker Liam Jackson gave the manager a metaphorical nudge, scoring both goals in the game at Shoemakers Lane.
Bowers have moved up to second following a 3-0 midweek victory at Tilbury on Tuesday to extend their run of victories to four after wins over Grays Athletic, Romford and Potters Bar Town.
Fifth-placed Dereham Town have a trip to Waltham Abbey, who are currently 12th in the table. The Magpies were 1-0 winners at Bury in midweek.
