Tomorrow, the Bloates entertain Debenham LC (Wellesley, 3) looking for a league double after they snatched an unlikely victory at the Leisure Centre in September. Then, Gareth Palmer scored in the first half and then took over in goal early in the second after an injury to Elliot Pride, writes Gerry Brown.
The Suffolk outfit won 6-3 (after extra time) in a League Cup fixture at the Wellesley in October.
The Reserves produced another winning performance against a lowly side, beating Downham Town Reserves 3-0.
The Bloaters now lie third with 39 points from 19 games, but have no game tomorrow. On Tuesday they are at home to Acle Reserves (7.30).
