Mattishall made it six league wins in a row when they overcame a resilient Wymondham Town in the Anglian Combination Premier Division on Saturday.

The first half was very even with both sides having chances and both goalkeepers had to very alert. Powley in the home goal made one very good save and Gary Harbour went close for the home side as the opening period remained goalless.

The deadlock was broken after nine minutes of the second half when Ben McCann fed Gary Harbour, whose first time cross was swept into the net by Alex Fitzgerald.

A free kick by Jake Anema went just wide of the post minutes later.

Wymondham were still in the game and came close on 25 minutes with a shot going just wide, but the home side increased their lead on 28 minutes when across from the right saw Fitzgerald score.

Fitzgerald nearly completed his hat-trick with five minutes left but was denied by the keeper.

The win saw Mattishall remain at the top of the table, three points ahead of Cromer, who had their game on Tuesday night postponed.
