Boro keep up winning run
Sprowston Wdrs 1, Attleborough Town 2
ATTLEBOROUGH travelled to Sprowston Wanderers hoping to continue their winning run of games.
The Boro players once again demonstrated their will to win and desire to play for the club.
The game started in Boro's favour with a number of good chances being created. Sprowston found it hard to deal with Boro's passing game but opportunities were spurned which would prove to be costly by the end of the first half.
Captain Martyn Fuller led by example again putting in some hard challenges coupled with some creative play. Nathan Lake worked tirelessly throughout the game partnering Daniel Whitman up front and then chasing back to support the defence.
Jay Webb yet again worked the right wing, with his pace putting the left-back under constant pressure.
The first half was drawing to an end when Sprowston won a corner, resulting in a great header just under the bar.

Following the half-time team talk Boro came out refreshed and once again applied more pressure.
Kane Wetteland and Jamie Miller were both brought on to add some more pace and energy to overwhelm the already tiring Sprowston team.
These changes paid off after five minutes when Wetteland got on the end of a through-ball which he finished from 12 yards, blasting the ball past the rooted keeper.
This only resulted in Boro becoming lifted once again. Sam Lawrence was then introduced to midfield to apply even more pressure which then resulted in Boro winning a corner 12 minutes from time.
Matthew Venables floated the ball to the far post where Wetteland was waiting to head home from close range. The Boro defence was called upon in the closing minutes but remained strong to ensure Boro came away with all three points.
Boro are at home to Southwold Town FC Saturday 2.30pm kick-off at the Rec.
