Kirkley & Pakefield 0, Leiston 0
K&P drew their second successive match 0-0 in the space of four days against championship favourites Leiston.
In a fast and furious end-to-end game, both defences were tested but no goals were conceded. Justin Fox brought out a good save by Leiston's Bligh after only 30 seconds and at the other end James Rowe brought out a brave save by Robert Woodcock.

Leiston's David Head hit a post from a difficult angle while a Fox free kick, in a good position for Kirkley, finally tested the keeper with five minutes to go.
