THETFORD Town, who next visit Yarmouth, paid the penalty for missed chances against visitors Hadleigh, losing 2-1.
Hadleigh took an early lead when a cross was not cut out. Town responded well and a Pask effort was saved. Soon after, a good run by Mann was cleared then later on a good run from Wood should have seen someone in the middle to finish. Pask then had two efforts saved.
Town equalised when a corner from Cusack was turned back by Pask and Catchpole, running in, made no mistake. Town had two good chances.
In the second half a pass from Pask found Wood whose first-time shot missed the target. Later on, Pask's effort from an angle just went wide. Town keeper Hulyer brought off two good saves but once again good work from Bloomfield saw Woods blast wide. Then Hadleigh scored from a free-kick to get a generous win.
