Not a pretty game to watch but the main thing was that Wroxham collected the three points.

They started with Painter and Spriggs up front and manager David Batch was resting Cook, Howes and Lemmon.

Nothing much happened in the first 15 minutes but then Wroxham started to get in gear - Spriggs took a 30-yard driver which just skimmed past the post.

Wroxham were now beginning to get on top. It was in the 25th minute when they went ahead with Simpson putting over a lovely cross which found Gary Gilmore 20 yards from goal, who volleyed the ball into the top corner of the net.

Whilst looking good going forward Wroxham appeared unusually nervous at the back, twice gifting possession to Debenham in dangerous areas.
