Lowestoft Town took the derby honours in Tuesday night’s pre-season friendly against Gorleston at Emerald Park.
The higher ranked Trawlerboys were given a good work-out by the Greens in a goalless first half and it was a similar story after the break before the visitors finally got their noses in front just beyond the hour mark.
