Wells Town 2, Bungay Town 1

A trip to the seaside on Saturday saw the Black Dogs hopes of points soon ebb away as Wells Town proved the better side on the day.

The scoreline was tighter than the game suggests and after pulling a goal back late on they forced the home side into some anxious final moments, but Wells deserved the points.

Late call-offs by Sam Allen and Liam Williams disrupted manager Travis Manning’s plans.

“We conceded two poor goals – the second one was possibly offside,” said a subdued manager, who named Connor Doddington the man of the match.

“The windy conditions didn’t help.

"Our winning streak comes to an end but we go again against Norwich United U23s."

Bungay started well enough and Doddington and Jack Child combined to set up Alex Shreeve for a first-time volley that was not far off target.

They created another chance soon after as Thomas Daniels fed Shreeve down the right, but the cross into the six-yard box saw Child fire well over when he should have hit the target.

Wells took the lead in the ninth minute as a corner from the left was curled to the far post where Ross Brewster touched it in unmarked.

It spurred the home side and they put another chance wide in the 32nd minute and then an unmarked forward put a header wide.

Before the interval Brandon Ling got down well to turn away a well struck 25-yard shot.

The Black Dogs had the wind at their back in the second half but it was Wells who went close in the 53rd minute, a forward hitting the bar from six yards.

The bar then kept them out again and from the rebound Ling did well to block a goalbound header.

Fifteen minutes from time Wells made it 2-0 as Jay Myhill beat Ling to a short cross at the near post to nick it in.

But Bungay made it an edgy last few minutes for Wells.

Adam Bray shot narrowly wide and Jackson Williams was not far wide with a 30-yard free-kick.

With three minutes left a ball forward from Jackson Williams found Shreeve, who lobbed it over the advancing keeper for his 10th goal in 10 games - but the home side ran down the clock to win.

Bungay: B Ling, T Daniels, J Wightman, J Williams, A Bray (D McDonald), J Child (W Dossett), C Doddington (J Child), D McDonald (O Alexander), A Martens, O Alexander (V da Costa), A Shreeve.

On Saturday Bungay entertain Norwich United U23s (2.30pm).
