The Ives head to Norfolk on the back of being undefeated over 90 minutes for the first time in 8 games having come back from being 3 goals down to being level in the last 15 minutes against Godmanchester Rovers in the Hunts Senior Cup. Albeit we went out of the competition in a penalty shoot out.

This fixture has been brought forward from the original date of Tuesday 20 November due to both clubs exiting early in the FA Trophy.

On the Ives squad front, Ben Seymour Shove, Munashe Sundire, Charlie De’Ath, Daniel Moyes and Mark Coulson are all doubts and will be assessed Saturday before the game. Goalkeeper Martin Conway will make his debut after signing from Kempston.
