Wroxham defied the odds to beat Ryman North morning leaders Phoenix Sports 1-0 at Trafford Park, securing a third win on the bounce.

Ross Gilfedder's penalty in the 78th minute separated the teams but it was not enough to take the Yachtsmen off the bottom of the Ryman North table, as teams above them also won.

The visitors had a good chance on 19 minutes when Alistair Gordan almost found striker Ricky Freeman only for Ben Lewis to nip in and put behind for a corner, which resulted in two more before Wroxham finally cleared the danger.

Handball was given against Ryan Andrews on 78 minutes and Gilfedder took the kick and converted despite Phillips going the right way.

Phoenix were reduced to 10 men when defender Lewis Mingle was sent off for a second booking on 85 minutes and, despite late pressure, Wroxham held out for their second league win in four days.
