Match Report v Thetford (a)

THETFORD TOWN 1 - 1 LONG MELFORD

Thurlow Nunn Premier Division - Saturday 07 April 2018

PICTURED: Will Wingfield scored his 8th goal of the season, as Melford reached the 50 point mark in Norfolk today.

Thetford are unbeaten in their last six matches, while Melford have only lost once away since Christmas, so it was not a surprise that this was a close match.

On a heavy pitch it was a largely uneventful first half. Neither side really looked like opening the scoring, though the home team slightly edged things with a bit more purpose to their play.

Thetford were rewarded just before the break when their top scorer ROBBIE PRIDDLE found a little room inside the box to drill low beyond Melford keeper James Scammell.

The visitors needed a quick response, and their reaction after half-time was the perfect tonic.

The pace of Hassan Ally down the wing caused problems to the home defence, and when he cut in from the bye-line and crossed, WILL WINGFIELD got across his marker to power home a header from close range.

Melford then had a few chances to take the lead, when Hassan Ally found space in the box, but he was twice denied. Another teasing cross was not finished off inside the six yard box and an Ant Waugh volley whistled wide.

Thetford had their chances too, but Scammell was equal to the few that caused concern, while another couple of shots were off target.

In the end, a share of the spoils was probably the fair result, with neither team doing enough to take all three points.

MELFORD: James Scammell, Jake Jackson, Ben Judge, Elliot Walker, Ross Waugh (c), Anthony Waugh, Hassan Ally, David Lopez, Will Wingfield, Nathan Rowe, Lewis Haughton  

Subs used: Steve Adams, Josh Collins
