Acle United 1, Dersingham Rovers 2
AFTER only 10 minutes Acle were facing defeat at the hands of an industrious visiting outfit who from the first whistle set their stall out and looked better organised and much fitter than their hosts.
After only 10 minutes Acle found themselves two goals adrift as a lackadaisical start heaped pressure on them.
United never really come to terms with their situation despite excellent performances by James Foreman, Ben Morgan, Louis Holdsworth and the irrepressible Daniel Foreman.
Dersingham went ahead after three minutes when they were allowed the freedom of the park to create a move that finished with Nicol scoring.
Rovers, with their tails up, went in search of a second and with Acle in turmoil the unmarked Moreira picked his spot following a corner that wasn't cleared.

This stirred Acle into action and they exerted pressure on the Dersingham defenders who found it difficult to cope with the onslaught inflicted on them.
The pressure was such they couldn't keep the wolves at bay and from one of the numerous corners Acle cut the deficit when James Foreman hammered the ball home through a packed penalty area after the flag-kick was scrambled clear.
In the second period Acle created some good chances to gain the points but couldn't force a way past the rearguard action of the Dersingham defenders. Acle pushed Daniel and James Foreman forward with time running out, but the chances created came to nothing.
Acle have the opportunity to gain revenge for this defeat tomorrow when they visit north-west Norfolk for the return league fixture at Dersingham (kick-off 2.30pm).
The sides each have 24 points, Acle from 17 games, Dersingham from 20 and are ninth and tenth respectively in the Anglian Combination Premier Division, Acle having slipped out of the leading pack.
