Great Yarmouth Town will be looking for an instant response this weekend after being brought down to earth with a bump.
The Bloaters had started their Thurlow Nunn First Division campaign in stunning style, but suffered a 3-0 home at the hands of Debenham LC on Saturday.
Town had previously gone six hours and 36 minutes without conceding a league goal this season, but they could not find a way back into the game after going behind to an own goal.
The second half saw the Bloaters camp out in Debenham's half but they were undone twice more – once from a long punt upfield and once from the penalty spot with just a couple of minutes remaining.
Another test of their promotion credentials comes today when they visit Halstead Town, second to Wivenhoe only by virtue of goal difference.
