Goals from Ryan Miles and Tim Henery ensured Wroxham remain most likely challengers to runaway leaders Stowmarket after the Yachtsmen's 2-0 win at home to Ely City.
Jordan Southgate's side had to wait until the second half to get the all important goals after Harley Black saw his first half penalty hit the crossbar. However, Miles broke the deadlock in the second period when he beat the goalkeeper at his near post and Henery completed the victory with a fine dinked effort. The win leaves Wroxham second, 15 points off Stowmarket, but with two games in hand.
Struggling Gorleston showed excellent spirit to recover from being 4-2 down to take a point at Woodbridge.
Connor Ingram put the Greens in front with a free-kick early on but former Ipswich Town winger Carlos Edwards then took centre stage to score a hat-trick and put Woodbridge 3-1 up. Joel Watts reduced the arrears before Jake Rudge restored the hosts' two-goal lead. However, Gorleston didn't let their heads drop and managed to claw their way back into the contest and leave with a share of thee spoils thanks to another goal from Ingram and Mitch McKay's effort.
