Gorleston FC beat Wroxham 0:2 on Tuesday, giving them the points they need to remain in Step 4 football for another season.

The Greens made five changes from Saturday's defeat to Hashtag.  

The Yachtsmen had an early chance which was easy for Jake Jessup but it was the Greens who had most of the play in the opening quarter of the game.

The breakthrough came in the 27th minute. A defence-splitting pass was perfect for Stewart to run onto and he slotted the ball past Ollie Sutton into the net for his first-ever Gorleston goal.

Wroxham began to get on top and could have been level twice before the break.

A through ball in the 40th minute sent the Wroxham player in on goal but he couldn't convert then in the second minute of stoppage a free kick into the box was headed goalwards but superbly tipped over the bar by Jessup.

Wroxham pressed from the start of the second half but it was Gorleston who had the better chances to score.

Zielonka's low cross to the back post was smuggled away from Gilfedder and Stewarts pace took him in on goal but his shot was saved by Sutton at the near post.

The hosts sent Tom Huckerby on up from and a Wroxham break from a Gorleston corner saw Jessup out to block Huckerby on the edge of his box.

In stoppage time Gorleston made sure of the win when an excellent free kick from Zielonka on the right was whipped into the box where Connor Ingram stretched to poke it into the goal.  

This was Ingram's 95th league goal for Gorleston moving him into the top ten league scorers of all time.
