Gorleston made it two wins on the bounce as they came from behind with an improved second half show in their first home game of the year.

Stewart Larter made just one enforced change to the side that had won at Clacton.

With goalkeeper Taurean Molloy having signed for Caister, in his place Larter has signed Scott Foreman, from Anglian Combination Premier Division side Acle.

Despite only taking charge of the club in October, this was Stewart’s 100th match as Gorleston manager, taking into account his first spell at the club.

Foreman was forced into his first major action after just 12 minutes when he was quick off his line to deny Alex Theobald.

Ely took the lead from the first corner of the match in the 38th minute. It was played into the box, flicked on at the near post, and found Jonathan Brown to turn it in.

Gorleston got back on level terms early in the seccond half. George Yusuff bombed forward on the right and got to the byline where he whipped in a cross and Joel Watts arrived first to flick it in.

On the hour mark, Larter made a double substitution, sending Ross Gilfedder and Kyle Ingram into the fray and, almost immediately, Gorleston looked more creative.

Four minutes after the substitutions, the Ely keeper was called on to make his first save from a low Gilfedder shot.

It took until the 83rd minute before Gorleston got their noses in front. Yusuff was heavily involved once more, winning the ball deep in his own half before spotting the forward run of Gilfedder who easily held off the defender and calmly slotted the ball under the advancing keeper.

Five minutes into stoppage time, with Gorleston looking to run the clock down after some late Ely pressure the ball out for a throw in.

Jonathan Brown decided to pick it up and throw it with a basketball type chest pass towards the face of Yusuff, earning a straight red card.

Match sponsor was Gerald Baxter and he awarded the Batemans man-of-the-match to Nathan Russell.

Gorleston: Foreman, Yusuff, Goreham, French (Gilfedder 60), Shade, Taylor (capt), Hannant (Ingram 60), Lambert, Watts (Fatadjo 79), McKay, Russell.
