Late strikes from Christy Finch and Remy Gordon saw Wroxham leap back into the play-offs with a somewhat fortunate win, writes Tom Crabb.

The Yachtsmen will count themselves rather lucky to come away with all three points, with Chatham carving out countless opportunities in the second period, only to come up against an inspired Elliot Pride who kept them at bay.

The home side seized the initiative when Jordan King opened the scoring but Joe Loft's controversial equaliser levelled matters before the break.

Pride performed heroics to keep his troops in it and he was rewarded when Finch netted against the run of play late on and Gordon wrapped the win up just four minutes later.

Wroxham: Pride, Taylor, Rust, Hinton (Guyton 70'), Price, Halliday, Garrod (Swatman 79'), White, King (Gordon 63'), Finch, Baker. Goals: King (17), Finch (83), Gordon (87).
