A home win and a home draw in the last week have seen Gorleston now enjoy an eight match unbeaten run.

Saturday's 1-0 home win against East Thurrock Utd saw the Greens make a good start to the game.

They took the lead in the eighth minute when Jacek Zielonka's corner was headed by George Keys into the net in off the post.

A sickening clash of heads after half an hour left Connor Ingram bleeding and Thurrock's Tamerson Eyong in receipt of a yellow card.

That card came back to haunt Eyong seven minutes into the second half when he bundled Dominic Docherty over from behind as Docherty looked like breaking through.

Referee Tom Harvey had no option than to produce a second yellow to send Eyong back to the changing room.

Gorleston had several more chances but failed to score.

The mid week home game against Felixstowe and Walton Utd ended up a 0-0 draw.

Gorleston had the better chances in the first half.

The Greens then made a good start to the second half putting pressure on the Felixstowe goal and possibly would have been awarded a penalty in the first few minutes had the flag not gone up for an earlier offside.

As in the first half Gorleston had the better chances.

A late header from Felixstowe went straight to Jake Jessup's hands as the Greens secured their third clean sheet in a row and moved ten points clear of the relegation play offs.

Gorleston's eight game unbeaten run will be threatened on Saturday when AFC Sudbury will be the visitors to Crown Meadow.

Sudbury are second and nine points behind champions-elect Hashtag Utd with just six games remaining.

A Gorleston win could mean Hashtag will win the league before Gorleston visit them on April 8.
