Waveney went in to this important Anglian Combination Premier clash against in-form Mulbarton without a recognised keeper and missing their skipper, Ryan Bloomfield.

Luke Salmon helped out between the sticks and had a fine game – and was certainly not at fault with any of the goals.

Another big player for fourth-placed Waveney, Carl Burgess, was again missing from the Waveney midfield.

Waveney dominated the early exchanges and Bradley Hough gave them the lead after good work from Carinhas.

The hosts continued to be on top, but on the half-hour mark, Mulbarton equalised from a corner when a free header at the back post was bundled home.

Waveney responded and should have restored their lead when Tom Mawford hit the side netting after wriggling free in the box.

But Mulbarton took the lead almost immediately as they broke and punished Waveney as Thompson squared for Smith to fire home unmarked from close range.

Waveney drew level just before the break when Hough slotted home his second after he had been brought down in the box.

After the break Waveney had a good penalty appeal turned down for what appeared to be a clear handball in the box and then Mawford’s shot was cleared off the goalline.

This proved to be the turning point as Mulbarton took the lead when a header was flicked on from a corner and the ball was tucked home by an unmarked Thompson.

Before Waveney could fight back, Bland was given too much time in the box to turn and seal the win for the visitors.

It proved to be another game where for long periods Waveney were the better team, looking comfortable and playing well, but a lack of concentration and mistakes from set-pieces cost them again with more home points dropped in the search for a top-four finish.

Ivy House man of the match: Bradley Hough.

Waveney team: Luke Salmon, Matthew Wilson, Daniel Grigg (Noah Gabriel 80), Andrew Hammersley, Daniel Tacon, Johnny Jarvis, Nelson Carinhas (George Barber 65), Ritchi High, Tom Mawford, Bradley Hough, Sam Shepherd. Sub not used: Michael King.
