Docking 1, Attleborough 6

ATTLEBOROUGH Town travelled to Docking for the fourth round of the Norfolk Junior Cup, looking to kick- start their winning ways again and they were not disappointed.

Within five minutes of the start Ollie Ramsbotham found the back of the net after some great football played through the midfield.

This was closely followed by a customary goal from Roy Bevis after a fine diagonal ball to the far post from Dan Witman.

With Ian Stones back in the centre of defence the Boro line looked solid, coupled with a very vocal and inspired Daniel Lloyd in goal.

A further two goals from Mihail Prosputin from right-back and another from Roy Bevis gave Boro a 4-0 lead at half-time.

The first half witnessed the football the Boro fans were used to at the beginning of the season.

The start of the second half brought an unlucky sending off for Dan Witman which put Boro under pressure for the final 40 minutes of the game. A quick reshuffle saw Zak Bevis moving to right midfield to cover the space.

The battle then ensued but Boro managed to continue with their attacking football going close on a number of occasions.

Docking came alive in the second half against the 10 men of Boro and they were presented with a few chances which produced some fine saves from Lloyd.

Finally, Docking broke through to score, giving the home side a slight lifeline. All this did was fire Boro back in to life and 10 minutes from time Tom Amis fired home following some individual trickery in the box.

This was then followed by another goal from Ramsbotham, making the final score 6-1.

Boro now face Harleston in the quarter-final of the cup at home on Saturday, January 15 (ko 1.45pm).
