LOWESTOFT Town may be nine points clear at the top of the Ridgeons League Premier Division, but they had to battle every inch of the way for their 3-2 home win over Woodbridge.

The Trawler Boys started out as if they would win with plenty to spare. After Gary McGee's opener, Neil Plaskett hit the bar before lashing the second following a corner.

But Kempson replied shortly after the interval and, although McGee grabbed his second after 57 minutes, Woodbridge finished strongly after Craig Jennings had made the score 3-2 - Dave Attridge was forced into spectacular action to deny them a late equaliser.

Despite their impressive lead, Lowestoft couldn't afford a slip-up as third-placed Leiston - 13 points adrift but with five games in hand - thrashed Haverhill Rovers 4-0.

Kirkley & Pakefield paid the price for their third penalty miss of the season as they drew 2-2 at home to Histon Reserves. They led 2-1 with goals from Liam Harvey-Cooper and Nathan Stone when Histon equalised five minutes from time - Tyrone Cameron being left unmarked to head in a corner. Histon's celebrations were short-lived as Fox was brought down to earn a last gasp chance to win it from the spot. But stand-in keeper Robbie Nightingale - normally an outfield player - saved Fox's kick to leave Kirkley to contemplate another disastrous finale.
