Haverhill Rovers v Norwich United

Haverhill seemed to be coasting to victory over their Norfolk opponents as the first half drew to a close;

however, a 2-0 deficit was thoroughly overturned by Norwich as they took all three points back home with them.

The hosts' lead came about via goals in the 19th and 25th minutes, the first when the returning Dan Cornwell hit a 25 yard free kick low under the wall and past the despairing dive of goalkeeper Ben Nower; Andrew Ofosu scored the second via a free header after a short cross from the bye line by Dan Jeffrey.

On 43 minutes a goal that turned the game arrived when a long throw was flicked on and Steve Shipley's overhead kick from 6 yards out found the Haverhill net. 56 seconds after the break Paul Cook then made the score 2-2 after he slid in to score after Jamie Forshaw's shot came back off the upright.

The away side then took a 3-2 lead in the 59th minute when a throw in wasn't cleared, Andrew Eastaugh put the ball to the edge of the six yard box from near the left bye line and Cook hooked his foot round the ball to put it past 'keeper Jamie Greygoose.

What proved to be the final goal came in the 73rd minute, some lacklustre defending ending with half time substitute Matthew Blake finishing into an empty net.
