Thetford Town 1, Fakenham Town 1

THETFORD entertained the Ghosts, whose recent form has shown that they were not going to be a pushover.

Both teams started well with Bruno having a chance just over early on. Fakenham had a good chance to take the lead but the shot was blocked by Terry. A good run by Haynes on 15 minutes ended with a pass to Dixon, whose effort was wide.

The game began to become a midfield battle with no real efforts on goal. Town had a chance on 30 minutes which was cleared for a corner.

Town started the second half with a Bruno effort over the bar, but the game became similar to the first half. Fakenham nearly took the lead when a shot was deflected by Thompson towards his own goal which brought a good save from Terry.

Fakenham took the lead on 60 minutes when, from a corner, a player was left unmarked to head home.

Town brought on Jones and his shot went in off the inside of a post.

But it was Fakenham who had one last chance to take the points before full-time.

Thetford Reserves lost 5-1 at Yarmouth (Volta Rocha). They next visit Leiston, 3pm.
