Lowestoft continued their march towards the Ridgeons League Premier Division title with a 3-1 win over Dereham at Crown Meadow.

The Blues went in front in the 15th minute when Russell Stock nodded on Jamie Godbold's cross to Rees Hunn who made no mistake from close range.

The Magpies levelled when striker Simon Mowbray chased a high ball that eluded Darren Cockrill and he skilfully lobbed keeper Reynolds from 14 yards in the 28th minute.

Lowestoft then seized the initiative when Damien Hilton headed home after Stock had headed Hunn's corner towards him in the 38th minute with Dereham appealing that the ball had been cleared off the line by Ollie Willis.

The home side increased their lead in the 65th minute when a mix-up between Higgs and Ollie Willis allowed Dale Cockrill a tap-in.
