UNITED manager Tony Ward is suffering from his side's inability to score goals or defend at the other end.

Acle have won only one game since the turn of the year having now played a total of 13 games, with the defeat of high-flying Sheringham the only victory to show since Christmas. And how Ward is going to turn things round in the remaining six matches is a mystery.

Luck is one thing when you are winning games, but if you're missing class up front you really have no hope, especially when the defence is leaking goals and the midfield non-creative.

Norwich Union weren't the stand-out best side Acle have met this season, but they just took their chances and defended well. Their first goal came straight from the kick-off when a long ball was sent into the Acle penalty area by Bilham to find ex-Acle man Lee Cosgrove, who headed unchallenged over Carter in goal.

Union doubled their lead after only three minutes when Prior was allowed to bring the ball down Acle's left before picking out Cosgrove at the far post to set up his striking partner Soanes, who had the easiest of chances.

The game was over as a contest after 14 minutes when Wright inadvertently headed a back-pass just out of reach of Carter's hands to give Union a three-goal advantage that was irretrievable.

Union were so much better than Acle in every department, first to the 50-50 balls and looked a class above Acle. They could have widened the margin several times but were let down by woeful shooting and over-elaborating in the Acle penalty area.

Acle rallied after the break, but by then it was all too late.
