Henry Pollock's shot hit the post after 6 minutes for the visitors and Ingram's curling shot went over the bar after 12 minutes. Ryan Curtis' effort was blocked by Cameron Panich on the half hour and just before the break Luke Johnson's cross from the right wing was well held by Stronge, goalless at half time.

Jack Zielonka's shot was on target for the visitors after 52 minutes and from Connor Deeks' cross Curtis' header hit the side netting after 62 minutes. Gorleston took the lead after 73 minutes when after Luke Johnson's header hit the bar, Ingram was first to the rebound and he netted from close range. Luke Johnson's shot hit the post after 84 minutes and from the rebound ex Woodpecker Ross Gilfedder's shot again hit the post.
