Boro travelled to Beccles Caxton following the 1-0 defeat to Foulsham the previous week with a point to prove and to keep the promotion push on track.
Boro’s midfield controlled the game from the start, retaining the ball well and exploiting the wings to great effect.
Kieron Brown and Nathan Lawson dominated the left-hand side, putting increasing pressure on the Beccles right back.
Kane Wetteland produced some good attacking play which resulted in a goal early in the first hal,f which set the tone for the rest of the game.
Nathan Lake provided the engine for the team again, breaking up any Beccles play coming through the middle. But it was not until the second half that all the Boro possession paid off.
Dan Whitman popped up 10 minutes into the half, finishing from close range to give Boro the cushion they deserved. This allowed a tactical substitution to be made and newly signed Stuart Chrystall was introduced – making an immediate impact, scoring with his second touch after less than a minute.
Sam Snowling was instrumental in pulling the strings, playing a mature controlled game in midfield ensuring Boro retained the ball linking with defence and attack. Sam Lawrence was introduced at right=back and once again put in a consistent performance linking with Matthew Brown down the right.
Nathan Lawson was looking dangerous on the left and his efforts paid off towards the end of the half when he cut in and placed the ball past the oncoming keeper with ease.
The final goal came when Wetteland slid in and finished from close range after a Boro attack down the left.
Manager John Vincent was extremely pleased with the player’s response following the previous result highlighting that this demonstrates the desire and fight to push for promotion.
