Norwich United manager Steve Eastaugh is hoping to name an unchanged side for the first time this season when the Planters travel to sixth place Bury Town tonight.

Eastaugh can take heart from recent performances, just one defeat in the last four games going a small way to make up for the poor start to the season.

Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Barking would have left the manager thinking what might have been had first half chances been taken, but being able to field a settled side will hopefully provide more stability. Bury have already defeated the Planters at Plantation Park, 2-1 in September and are undefeated in five.

Dereham Town have a chance to go five points clear at the top - albeit with their rivals having games in hand - when they travel to Witham. The Magpies will be looking to bounce back from a heartbreaking 2-1 defeat at Haringey Borough on Saturday when they were sunk by a last minute goal.
