The ground was very heavy in places as Wroxham started playing catch-up with the league programme and were soon in action attacking the Mildenhall goal.

In the first five minutes Spriggs, Gilmore and Cook all went close, keeping the Mildenhall keeper busy.

In the 10th minute it was Howie who was called into action when a shot from three yards out was well saved by the Wroxham keeper.

Wroxham were pressing forward in numbers, having a couple of corners that came to nothing. White and Gilmore worked well to set up Spriggs whose shot skimmed the post. Cook was next to test the keeper and was unlucky not to score from a goalmouth scramble.

In the 45th minute Wroxham went ahead when Gary Gilmore found the net before the half-time break.

In the 50th minute Wroxham had a great chance to add to their lead when Simpson had only the keeper to beat but he shot straight at the keeper.

A great save by Howie two minutes later, after a Mildenhall breakaway, kept Wroxham in the lead.

Cook got a booking and Lemmon was given a telling off as things started to hot up, with fouls on both sides.

Mildenhall were now coming into the game more and had a great chance with a player only two yards off the line and Howie stranded. However he put the ball over the top.

Daniels came on for Gilmore and was soon in action trying to lob the keeper but the ball went just over the top.

Howie had to make another good save as Mildenhall were piling on the pressure. The ref was still busy with his book as Simpson was the next to get a card. The last 15 minutes gave chances to both sides but neither were able to get any more goals.

It wasn't the prettiest game to watch but three points was the objective.

It was disappointing to have only 92 spectators with the official's bill of �231.

On Tuesday, Wroxham are away at Felixstowe. Perhaps everyone was thinking of next Saturday in the FA Vase quarter-final at Needham.
