“I’m sure we will be really busy as all the big sports matches are well supported here.

“There will be a fantastic atmosphere and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Railway Tavern - Yaxham Road

Landlord of the Railway Tavern, Paul Sandford, said: “The Norwich Leeds game will be on at the Tavern 100pc.

“Anyone in Leeds or Norwich colours will get a free half-time hot dog.”

•Cromer

The Wellington Pub and Smokehouse - Garden Street

Chris Clarke said: “We are always busy when a game is on. With it being a Norwich game it will be busier and we already put extra staff on for any football match.

“Even people with Sky at home will come into the pub to take in the atmosphere.

•Great Yarmouth

King’s Arms - Northgate Street

Manager Ryan Stringer said: “We’re hoping there will be a fairly big turn out, obviously because it’s an away game and because of the cold weather and rain.”

He said that when games are played at Carrow Road, more people go either to the ground itself or to pubs in Norwich.

•Diss

The Greyhound - St Nicholas Street

Landlord Dale Edwards said: “It’s going to be busy, especially busy as it is a late kick-off and a Norwich game.

“The fact they are taking on the league leaders will also make an impact.”
