Premier Division leaders The Grove face a stern test of their Evening News Norwich Sunday League title credentials when they face Quebec Rovers on Sunday.

Despite only being in fourth place Quebec are nine points behind the leaders with five games in hand.

Uppermost in the minds of the home side is the 7-0 mauling they received at Britannia Barracks in November but manager Steve Greening has no thoughts of revenge, he's just looking to win the game.

"We went two down at their place and so we went for broke and paid the price said Steve "but they are a good side".

Sam Mallet will be hoping to add to his thirteen goals as the team look to continue the form that saw them beat second placed Wymondham Rangers 4-1 last time out. Quebec's Neil Reid, who along with Steve Brock runs the side, said the previous game counts for nothing as the game was a lot closer than the scoreline suggested.
