Gorleston made it five wins in a row to move up to 10th in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division with a 6-2 win at home against Hadleigh.
However, they had to come from behind to take victory as Hadleigh landed the first blow in the 13th minute when Kris Rose struck from a corner.
However, Gorleston were back on level terms midway through the half when Ross Gilfedder scored from the spot after Jackson Ramm had been fouled inside the area.
The Greens got their noses in front before half-time thanks to a 20-yard volley from Luke Goreham that rocketed into the back of the net.
David Shade then gave the home side a bit of breathing space to make it 3-1 and any hopes of a Hadleigh comeback were extinguished two minutes into the second-half when Nathan Russell nodded home. Sean Perfect’s tidy finish made it 5-1 and Gilfedder’s clever chip made it 6-1 before Kyron Andrews got a consolation for the visitors.
Thetford had to settle for a point from their trip to Newmarket despite twice taking the lead.
The Brecklanders struck first in the sixth minute when Andrew Wood controlled a long free kick from goalkeeper Will Viner before lashing the ball home past Newmarket goalkeeper Alex Archer.
The home side levelled when former King’s Lynn Town winger Stephen Spriggs crossed for Lewis Whitehead to finish.
However, Thetford regained the lead when Wood got his second of the afternoon, via a deflection, after good approach play from Volta Rocha. Newmarket earned a share of the spoils midway through the second half when Leon Antoine powerfully headed home.
