Holt United 0, AFC Norwich 2

AN Owls team desperate to clear the relegation zone had four players missing through suspension and three through work and injuries.

They conceded a goal after only two minutes but began to have their share of attacks, although never creating a worthwhile scoring chance.

They suffered another blow when skipper Gavin Neale was forced to leave the pitch with a leg injury. Soon after fellow centre-back Matthew Jordan also picked up a injury but carried on. Twice Holt got good shots on target but were well saved by the competent Palmer.

Midway through the half the visitors scored a second.

The second half was a pretty even affair. Jordan left the field to be replaced by Martin Folds. Alan Gravenor, who took Neale's place, was starting his first match for four months and tried his hardest to get the Owls back into the game.
