Reepham 0 harleston 3: Perfect Town march on thanks to second-half goals

PUBLISHED: 16:13 21 February 2017 | UPDATED: 16:13 21 February 2017

An clinical second-half performance saw Harleston come away from Reepham with all three points to maintain their perfect record in 2017 and earn their second away win in the space of five days.

One change was made to the squad from Tuesday night with James Pipe returning to the starting line-up, with Paul Bliss starting from the bench.

The first half was a scrappy affair with the midfields dominating proceedings and meaning chances were at a premium.

Both sides hit the woodwork but neither defence was breached and the first 45 minutes ended goalless. Town came out for the second half with purpose and took the lead after five minutes when Howell released Scott Roberts who finished superbly. Five minutes later Howell added his name to the scoresheet and Town went on to complete a comfortable win.
