Thetford started well and could have gone in front early on but Matt Dixon's effort went wide.

Town tried to reply but poor passing saw Gorleston have more of the ball.

Thetford never managed to clear the danger and Chris Sandford benefitted before the Greens made sure of victory late on with a third.
