Norwich United travel to leaders AFC Hornchurch, defending a seven-game unbeaten run.

The Planters will be hoping to repeat their performances at promotion-chasing Bowers & Pitsea and Dereham Town, the Planters winning 3-1 in Essex whilst returning with a goalless draw from Aldiss Park on Boxing Day.

The Urchins have picked up more points away from home than at Hornchurch Stadium – and they have lost two of their last three home games, a 4-3 defeat by Brentwood Town on New Year’s Day was followed by a 5-4 win over Waltham Abbey, before they went down to Barking by the only goal on Tuesday evening.

Planters manager Steve Eastaugh will have the services of Ben Jones, available after missing last Saturday’s 3-3 draw at home to Tilbury. New signing Charlie Hitch will travel if the paperwork is completed in time, having signed from Harleston.

Fourth-placed Dereham Town have a trip to Barking this afternoon.
