HAVERHILL ROVERS 0 THETFORD TOWN 5

Haverhill conceded five goals for the second game in a row, and do not have a clean sheet for 16 games, as Thetford netted five times for the second time in three matches and kept their defence in-breached for the first time in 2018.

THURLOW NUNN LEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION


The away side went ahead with 28 minutes gone, Andrew Wood's mishit shot leaving goalkeeper Evan Jeckells rooted to the spot before he was involved with the second goal sixty seconds later, his shot being blocked and coming out to Ben Anderson, whose placed shot from the right of the edge of the six yard box went over Jeckells and into the far side netting.

Haverhill were kept goal less on 58 minutes, Rory Jebb having a shot blocked and then his 12 yard rebound from right of the penalty spot produced a good one handed save out of 'keeper Will Viner.

A third goal came Thetford's way with 65 minutes gone, the ball coming out to the left and being inside the area towards Valter Rocha, who lost his footing under a challenge from Alfie Carroll but still managed to steer the ball past Jeckells while on the ground.

Rocha scored a second four minutes later, Anderson using his pace to get down the right and into the area before squaring it for his fellow winger to slide in to the net under a challenge.

The final goal came after 76 minutes, Ross Bailey's free kick on the right eventually coming out to Rocha just inside the area; he chested and volleyed the ball into the bottom right corner to seal his hat trick before performing acrobatics to celebrate it.

ROVERS : Jeckells, Carroll, Fox, Milne, Geoghegan, Holmes, Abbott, Bradley (Clarke, 46), Jebb (Judge, 59), Bennett, Haines (Wozniak, 46). Subs not used – Newman, Tait.
