Lowestoft Town claimed an impressive 3-1 win at Hitchin Town in the BetVictor Southern Premier Central League last night.

The Blues were grateful to Luis Tibbles just before the half-hour mark when he saved a penalty and Jake Reed took full advantage of the reprieve to put his side ahead in the 39th minute.

Hitchin equalised just before the break through a Jake Hutchinson header but Malachi Linton restored the Trawlerboys' lead coolly from the spot early in the second half.

Lowestoft effectively wrapped up the points in the 65th thanks to Marcus Wilkinson's strike although Travis Cole's sending off due to a second yellow card prompted hopes of a comeback from the home side.

However, Jamie Godbold's men saw out the remaining few minutes despite Hitchin having a goal disallowed.
