Trimingham Pilgrims entertained league leaders Sprowston Wanderers expecting a tough test.

The visitors looked dangerous in the early stages although when they took the lead in the 15th minute it was just as Pilgrims were beginning to settle.

After this goal Pilgrims got into their rhythm and were not overawed by their opponents and the match became a stalemate, with neither side able to create any clear-cut chances.

As the dying minutes approached Sprowston were awarded a penalty that the hosts felt was harsh but this was brilliantly saved by home keeper Leigh Brown and it finished 1-0.

Sprowston are now odds on for the title but Pilgrims must keep battling for runners-up spot.
