Ely City 3, Gorleston 1

Gorleston's promotion hopes were dented with defeat at table-topping Ely City on Saturday.

After a scoreless first half the Greens fell behind to two quick goals shortly after the restart.

Record goal scorer Gary Ingram pulled one back for the Greens after a concerted attacking spell.

For a time it looked like Gorleston could get back on level terms before the Robins broke away to make it

3-1.
