Acle Utd Res 0-2 East Harling …

Acle Utd Res 0-2 East Harling
The first team travelled towards the coast on Saturday to take on Acle Utd Reserves at Bridewell Lane looking to complete the double over the home side this season.
Many changes were made to the squad with Woodcock replacing the injured Robbie Goodwin in the Greens goal, Morris was unavailable for selection and was replaced by the returning Kane Wetteland and Suggitt made his first appearance for the first team in place of the injured Savage.
The away side made a quick start and after some superb play from Senior, Johnson saw his shot fly well over the target.
Wetteland then saw his header go over before Holt saw a clean strike at goal bravely blocked by a defender.
Mid way through the half Senior picked up on a loose ball to beat several defenders with ease before being upended in the box. The referee rightly pointed to the spot and up stepped Wetteland looking for his first goal since signing for the club. Unfortunately his effort was saved by the keeper and bundled out of play by a helping defender to see the score remain 0-0.
Wetteland was soon to make amends however as from the resulting Rose corner he headed home from a few yards much to his and the teams relief.
The home side were working hard to try and get back into the game but the back four of Suggitt, Allin, Durrant, Bareham and keeper Woodcock were at their best and were very rarely beaten.
Barnett and Wetteland were dominant in midfield and every time Senior got the ball the away side looked a real threat.
The second goal was crucial and it came just before the interval, Holt turned and showed good feet to beat his man and fire a good strike in to the net via a deflection.
The visitors were forced into a change at the break with Rose injured, a welcomed return to action for Jordan Scent who has been sidelined with injury for 6 months.
The second half was a far more scrappy affair with the away side dominating possession and the home side happy to use the slight wind to clear their lines with ease.
Johnson came so close to getting on the end of a Barnett strike and Barnett got his feet tangled up moments later when trying to get on the end of a Wetteland cross.
Moments later Woodcock saved the day when a deflected strike saw the keeper fly to his left superbly to tip over the bar and make one of the saves of the season for sure.
Scent started to dictate the ball and was keen to start play from the back whenever he could. Sivier replaced the tiring Wetteland in midfield
And the away side saw out the game in comfortable style with some good football played at times.
A hard earned 3 points in which the side showed great desire and a will to win.
A very pleasing performance as we head into next week’s local derby away at Watton Utd.
Well done all………
