Wroxham's leading goalscorer Andy Key was ruled out with a hamstring injury and Steve Harley filled the gap.

Unfortunately Key's penetration was missed and the Yachstmen struggled to make any impact on a skidpan surface and there were no goals at either end by the break.

The first chance fell to the home side, but Clarke fired high and wide. Wroxham won a free-kick on the right and Harley headed wide from Lemmon's set-piece.

Wroxham had a let-off when poor defending let in Ross with the keeper stranded, but Carus strode in to hack the ball off the line.

Play then swept to the other end, where the home keeper failed to grasp the ball, which ran clear only for Lemmon to fire his effort towards an empty goal, only for the ball to drift wide.

The game resumed with the same low tempo action as the first period with only half chances sporadic at either end.

However the whole complexion of the game changed in the 60th minute when Wroxham broke the deadlock.

They had been exerting pressure continuously for 10 minutes and with a series of passing movements in the danger area Danny White was free to the left of the home goal to plant a brisk right-footer past home keeper Lynn.

Wroxham had some shaky moments defending their one-goal lead but hung on to secure all three points.

Wroxham: Mcannally, Pauling, Howes, Challen, Carus, Harley, Woanes, Lemmon, Cook, Gilmore, White. Subs: Bensley, Wines, Self.
