Colchester United travel to Norwich with their Championship status all but confirmed.

Norwich, who salvaged a late 1-1 draw at Layer Road in December, sit precariously above the drop zone in eighteenth place.

The U's will be hoping to get the three points against ex-U's striker Jamie Cureton, who controversially returned to Carrow Road in the summer, and at the same time haul City back into a relegation fight.

Norwich City Team News:

New Signing Maceo Rigters is set to start for the home side, after signing on Wednesday.

Darel Russell (suspension) and Matty Pattison could feature, along with Darren Huckerby.

sorry chaps, but Naaarwich will be victorious, and Curo will stick at least one past you just to shut the boo-boys up... shame though, I'd much rather it was Ip***** in your league position, (so we'll just have to be content with stopping them getting to the play-offs) - good luck with your survival battle, but it won't start for you at Carrow Road..!
