GORLESTON notched up a second successive home win with a hard-fought victory against Fakenham Town last night.

A first-half Luke Goreham strike proved the difference between the sides in this keenly contested encounter.

The Green's midfielder grabbed his second goal of the season drilling the ball home after 20 minutes.

Fakenham were close to equalising when Karl Pask clipped the bar with a chip from the edge of the box.

The home side missed a gilt edged opportunity to double the lead on the stroke of half-time with Neil Hurren miscuing his shot right in front of goal.

Fakenham still posed a threat and Pask was cursing his luck again after the Ghost's striker saw his powerful drive crash against the woodwork.

“Our two central defenders Adam Thurtle and Eddie Thompson were outstanding and both full backs showed real maturity.”
