Harleston 1, Fakenham Res 1
HARLESTON returned to action after a week's absence, looking to build on their impressive 9-1 away win against Easton.
However, it was Fakenham who started the brighter of the two sides with Harleston struggling to find their tempo. Fakenham took a deserved lead on the 20- minute mark when a free-kick into the Harleston box was not dealt with and left the Fakenham striker with a simple chance which he duly scored.
This goal seemed to spark Harleston into life and they began to impose themselves on the game, Paul Bliss, Jordan Rocastle and Fionn Goodwin Wright all going very close as Town struggled to convert their chances into goals.

The second half started much as the first had finished, with Harleston creating chances but unable to find the equaliser, Rocastle again coming close as his effort struck the post and full back Nick Kents drive being well saved by the Fakenham goalkeeper.
With 20 minutes to go Harleston were rewarded for their persistence when Rocastle fired home from close range after excellent work from Fionn Goodwin Wright.

The game was now stretched with both sides looking for the winner, Goodwin Wright and David Norman both going close for Harleston, in the end both sides had to settle for a point. Harleston will be encouraged by the number of chances created but will take a lesson from their slow start.
MoM: Nick Kent for his tireless work from right-back.
