Except for one good save from Sean Burdon, Scole hardly troubled Stuart Parsons in the Reepham goal.
Manager Shane Lutkin said after the game: 'We need to get back to a passing game. We were playing far too many long balls and we got sucked into a mediocre stalemate.

This Saturday, Reepham Town are away to Horsford.
