Jamie Forshaw was on target for Wroxham against Heybridge Swifts.

Wroxham's play-off hopes suffered a severe dent as Heybridge Swifts claimed a late leveller at Scraley Road.

Heybridge started well and saw a decent early header from Damien Green go close but it was the Yachtsmen that took the lead in the 32nd minute.

A cross from the left by Remy Gordon picked out Jamie Forshaw and the former King's Lynn striker swept the ball home past Danny Sambridge.

Wroxham had earlier hit the bar from Gordon and deserved their first half lead.

The best of the late first half chances fell to George Cocklin who fired inches wide with a 29th minute free-kick.
