Dereham were beaten by an injury-time goal.

After a frantic opening Jamie Forshaw missed a good chance for Dereham after a flowing three-man move.

Forshaw then had a goalbound effort cleared off the line following a corner on the right. As the home pressure continued visiting keeper Lamar Johnson made a fine save from Danny Beaumont’s 20-yarder before Rhys Logan steered Beaumont’s long ball over from close range.

Gray were awarded a penalty in the 35th minute when Barry Conan was upended, but Koran Bishop’s spot-kick hit a post with keeper Elliot Pride making an excellent save from the follow-up.

Grays keeper Johnson denied Beaumont, with the half ending with Robbie Linford making a goal-line clearance to deny Bishop. The dangerous Bishop cut in from the right and clipped Pride’s bar in the 88th minute, and Grays stole the points in added time when Adeyinka Cole netted from close range.
