DEREHAM Ladies hosted Chelmsford and made heavy work of winning with two late goals at the end of the second half.
A win was vital for Dereham in order to maintain their challenge for promotion.
Dereham pressured Chelmsford from the start with Evie Van Poortvliet powering her way into the D which Hannah Palmer finished off to make the score 1-0.
