A goal midway through the first half at home to Brentwood  Town was enough to end Gorleston's recent unbeaten run last weekend.

It was a reasonably even opening quarter of the game with Gorleston perhaps having slightly more of the possession.

Jamie North directed a header from a long throw at the keeper then Dominic Docherty's header from a corner was kicked away a yard from the line.

The visitors took the lead in the 25th minute when a diagonal ball from the right, into the Gorleston area, saw Jack Addington run into the box.

Keeper Jake Jessup looked favourite to get to the ball but seemed to hesitate and Addington lobbed the ball over him and into the net.

Brentwood could have made it two seven minutes before the break when a low cross from the left saw Bryan Ifeanyi sliding in at the back post but he was inches away from making a connection.

Three minutes into the second half Jessup didn't hesitate to race from his box and clattered into Ifeanyi as the striker hit his shot. A yellow for the big keeper and the free kick came to nothing.

A minute later North latched on to a Ross Gilfedder knock down to hit a thumping shot from 25 yards which the keeper palmed away. Gilfedder picked up the rebound and hit a left footed shot which the keeper saved.

In the 51st minute, Addington had Brentwood's only effort on target, apart from the goal, which was straight at Jessup.

It is status quo at the bottom of the Isthmain League North table following Gorleston's defeat on Saturday and defeat for the teams immediately above them, leaving the Greens third from bottom, in a relegation play off place.

The Greens travel to Coggeshall on Saturday, 3pm kick off. On Tuesday night Gorleston travel to Stowmarket Town
