LOWESTOFT made it two away wins on the trot as they came from behind to beat relegation threatened Newmarket Town 4-2.

A bright start saw the Blues on the offensive but it seemed that the Newmarket woodwork would again be a stumbling block for the Town as Gary McGee's effort rebounded off the upright after Paynter had parried Ally McKenna's header at the foot of the post. McKenna again went close with a glancing header from an excellent Carl Poppy cross.

O'Brien was played through with just Adam Rix to beat but although the Newmarket striker went round the Town keeper he slipped with the goal gaping in front of him and Neil Plaskett recovered his ground to clear.

Dale Cockrill was having a good game in midfield and he started the move which ended with Craig Lewis drawing the keeper and squaring the ball back to him only for him to blaze over an open goal.

Rix raced from goal and impeded O'Brien and breathed a sigh of relief as the referee pulled out just the yellow card.

Somewhat against the run of play Newmarket took a 39th minute lead. Despite McKenna receiving a blow to the head play was allowed to continue and O'Brien ran through and although Rix blocked his initial shot the ball rebounded to him to clip over the prostrate keeper into the net.

The Jockeys's joy was short lived as the Blues equalised within 3 minutes One touch football saw the ball played from McKenna to Bradley Hough to McGee whose low ball into the middle was swept in by Dale Cockrill. The half ended with Rix producing a fine save to deny Olive.

Lowestoft started the second half on the offensive and McKenna charged down Paynter's clearance and turned and shot in one movement but slightly off target. As play swung from end to end Olive worked his way through but shot into the side netting.

Lowestoft took the lead in the 55th minute. Hough won a corner on the right and Poppy's flag kick rebounded down off Vowden to leave McGee a simple tap in from less than a yard. It took only 3 minutes for Newmarket to draw level when the dangerous Olive worked his way through again to go round Rix and net from a narrow angle.

The Blues were again denied by the woodwork as Dale Cockrill's header from McKenna's cross came out off the crossbar. The Blues were not to be thwarted though and regained the lead in the 73rd minute as dale Cockrill unselfishly squared the ball to McGee to shoot home from 10 yards.

The victory was sealed four minutes from time as Dale Cockrill threaded the ball inside the full back for substitute Ross King to send in a perfectly placed cross for McKenna to head home.

MoM: Dale Cockrill.

Team: Rix, Plaskett, Bloomfield, Dale Cockrill (sub Williams 87), Saunders, Darren Cockrill, Hough (sub King 79), Poppy, A McKenna, McGee, Lewis (Sub Hunn 79). Sub (not used) Goddard.
