Rooks hit four past Watton
Watton 1, Wymondham Town 4
WYMONDHAM travelled to play Watton looking to keep in touch with leaders Wells, whom they host this weekend, and attempt to pull away from the chasing pack.
In difficult windy conditions, free- flowing football was not going to be conducive. With the wind, the Rooks looked to dominate but it was Watton who showed first with Hodges saving one-on-one.
In a scrappy game, Town did take the lead when Browne scored with an excellent finish.
Further goals were added when O'Brien scored his best goal for Town with a half-volley looping over the keeper.

Rackham and Downs were both denied by the crossbar with shots from distance and Rackham was denied by an excellent save.
The second half was always going to be tough, especially when Watton scored early on, with Town appealing for offside. Town's task was made even more difficult after a controversial decision when Webb was sent off and no action was taken against the Watton player.
Town defended stoutly with the back four of Cracknell, Ethridge, Seaman and Downs restricting Watton to one chance, which was well tipped over by Hodges. On the break Town had their chances, with O'Brien contriving to miss from a yard and Ramsbottom missing with a header following excellent play by Browne. MoM: Seaman, headed and tackled anything that moved.
