Lowestoft Town 2, Wivenhoe Town 1

Two goals from Reece Hunn were enough to maintain Lowestoft Town's 17-point lead at the top of Ridgeons League Premier Division last night. The winger opened the scoring after 11 minutes at Crown Meadow after getting on the end of a Jamie Godbold cross, but the struggling Essex side equalised within 60 seconds through Ronaldo Wright.

Two goals from Reece Hunn were enough to maintain Lowestoft Town's 17-point lead at the top of Ridgeons League Premier Division last night.

The winger opened the scoring after 11 minutes at Crown Meadow after getting on the end of a Jamie Godbold cross, but the struggling Essex side equalised within 60 seconds through Ronaldo Wright.

However the league leaders were not to be denied, with Hunn netting his second with just 16 minutes on the clock after he latched on to Gary McGee's through ball.

Both sides hit the woodwork in the second half, with Richard Woodrow hitting the bar for the home side.

But Town, without Russell Stock, Jack Marsden and skipper Darren Cockrill who were all rested for Saturday's FA Vase semi-final first leg at Whitley Bay, held on to take all three points.

However, there was concern for the Blues' fans and management when Hunn went off injured in the second period to be replaced by Bradley Hough, although the extent of his injury is not yet clear.
