Gorleston’s unbeaten run was minutes away from reaching nine on Saturday until an injury time winner from second placed AFC Sudbury saw the Greens slip to a 1-2 home defeat.

Sudbury opened the scoring in the 25th minute.

Joshua Stokes weaved his way down the right flank and pulled the ball back towards the edge of the box to where Nnamdi Nwachuku had created himself time to steer the ball into the net.

Six minutes before the break Gorleston got the equaliser they deserved.

After Henry Pollock had been fouled,Jacek Zielonk swung in the free kick and Deeks rose highest to head the ball into the goal.

Sudbury upped their game in the second half and continually pressed the Greens back with Adam Tann having to head out from under his own crossbar just three minutes into the half.

Gorleston seemed to weather the early storm and Zielonka curled in a free kick from the left which just didn't bend enough.

Nathan Stewart was sent on and his pace and trickery worried the Sudbury defenders but he couldn't find the final ball.

Stokes saw his 69th minute header hit Jessup's crossbar then, four minutes later, a fantastic volley from Zielonka from 25 yards swerved away from the keeper but bounced away off the outside of the post.

It was Jessup v Sudbury in the 77th minute when first he parried away a long shot and then was up quickly to block three efforts from three different Sudbury players before being able to hold on to the ball.

With two minutes to go Connor Ingram slid Stewart through. Stewart hit the ball back across goal towards Robbie Sweeney but Sweeney had come inside with the ball going all the way across the face of goal.

Then a cross into the box saw Nwachuku in space between defenders and he guided his header past Jessup into the net.
