Haverhill Rovers will look to extend their winning run to three games when they travel to 12th placed Norwich United on Saturday.

Haverhill Rovers will look to extend their winning run to three games when they travel to 12th placed Norwich United tomorrow (Saturday, November 17, 3pm start).

A recent upturn in form has seen Rovers lose just twice and win nine of their last nine league matches.

They strung together successive wins despite manager Peter Betts announcing his retirement from the role.

Jamie Challis remains sidelined, while Aaron Forshaw will play for HSA tomorrow (Saturday, November 17) before returning to Rovers.

“We absolutely flying at the moment and it’s the best run we’ve been on for a while,” said Betts.

“If we had started the season this way we’d be near the top now.

“It will be a tough game at Norwich as they’re a difficult side to play against but we’re feeling confident at the moment.”

On Tuesday (November 20) Rovers host Halstead Town in the Red Insure Cup First Round, which is being played at the New Croft as Rovers arrived at Halstead for the game on October 23 to find the hosts had a broken crossbar in one goal.

“The league has shown some respect to our supported and at least they don’t have to travel to Halstead again,” said Betts.

“Winning is a good habit and we want to keep it up for as long as we can so that when I pass on the reigns the team will be in good shape and good form for whoever takes over.”
