Ismaels on Fire

Gorleston enjoyed a comfortable evening in the Park against already relegated Wivenhoe.

There were two changes from the Wivenhoe defeat with David Shade and Nathan Russell dropping to the bench. Jackson Ramm and Elliott Hannant returned to the starting line up.

After a delayed kick off because of travel problems for Wivenhoe and a hole in the net, the Greens were dominant from the off.

Sean Perfect hit the first shot in anger after seven minutes but it went over before he turned creator for Mitch McKay who also shot over.

Gorleston eventually took the lead in the 21st minute. Ismael Fatadjo won the ball in midfield and threaded it into Ross Gilfedder on the edge of the box. Gilfedder laid the ball wide to Perfect who cut in and finished past keeper Lewis Down.

Down then saved from Fatadjo before the Dragons got a surprise equaliser in the 27th minute when Myles Passley appeared to be crossing from the right wing. The ball floated over everybody including Scott Foreman and dropped into the far corner of the goal.

The sides were level for just two minutes before Gorleston regained the lead. Ramm drove forward from the right before threading the ball through to Fatadjo who finished low past Down and in off the post.

The Greens had chances to extend their lead before half time. McKay hit a Joel Watts cross into the keeper's arm from six yards. Gilfedder was denied by two saves within a minute before a deep cross found Isaac Burrage unmarked at the back post two yards out and he somehow put it over the bar...once a defender!

A Luke Goreham through ball then sent Gilfedder through on the keeper but Down saved with his feet.

The second half continued in much the same vein.

Gilfedder had a 59th minute free kick tipped over after Fatadjo was fouled on the edge of the box then Perfect's low cross gave Gilfedder the best chance of the match but, with the goal at his mercy, the striker couldn't sort his feet out and missed the ball.

However, it was 3-1 in the 61st minute with a superb finish from Fatadjo, turning Watts low cross from the right in at the near post with an audacious flick.

Watts won the ball with a tackle in the Dragons area and forced a save from the keeper before Down once again denied Gilfedder, tipping over his 25 yard free kick.

The Watts struck the post with McKay firing the rebound over.

Substitutes Kyle Ingram and Peter Lambert combined with the keeper denying the latter with a good save but it was Lambert who had the last laugh when he latched on to a through ball in the 90th minute and calmly finished past the advancing keeper to make it 4-1.

Match sponsors Tecflo awarded the Batemans man of the match to Ismael Fatadjo.
