Gorleston will be looking to follow up an impressive midweek win when they take on FC Clacton at Emerald Park tomorrow afternoon (3pm).
Having seen last Saturday’s schduled home clash with Wivenhoe postponed because of a waterlogged pitch the Greens were back in action at struggling Fakenham Town on Tuesday evening.
And with Ross Gilfedder scoring four times they came away with a thumping 6-2 win that lifted them up to 14th in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division table.
The last time a Gorleston player scored four or more in a match was on December 15, 2012 when the Greens beat Clacton 10-2 with Ali McKenna netting seven.
Gilfedder’s heroics helped extend an impressive sequence for Stu Larter’s side, who now taken 12 points from a possible 18. Tomorrow’s opponents FC Clacton lie seven points behind them, having played four more matches.

With no midweek game to focus on the Bloaters should be suitably refreshed when they resume their Premier Division campaign with a home fixture against bottom of the table Wivenhoe Town (3pm).
