Norwich City Ladies are hoping to finally play their first SE Combination game since October on Sunday when they visit Lewes.

The Sussex side is currently third in the table with seven wins from 13 games while the Canaries are sixth, five points behind but with five games in hand.

City's home game against Northampton at Plantation Park last Sunday was the latest casualty of the weather, the fixtures backlog proving a real headache.

Co-manager Emma Fletcher admitted: “It's a nightmare. It's going to be a tough few weeks of the season. We're staying in Lewes on Saturday so hope that doesn't get called off.”

Norwich have lagged behind their rivals because of success in the Women's FA Cup and County Cup competitions.

They were knocked out of the national competition last month, leaving them clear to battle for other trophies and re-focus on the league.
