Ely City 3 Debnham LC 2

The pitch was heavy from the rain and the wind was strong in biting conditions down at the Unwin last week. There were no programmes, probably under the assumption the game wouldn't go ahead.

Ely clearly weren't in the right frame of mind from the outset with Debnham taking the lead from a free kick as early as 2 minutes. Ely fought back and a cross from Jamie Alsop levelled the scores on 15 minutes. The Robins weren't ahead for long though as the visitors went down the other end after the centre and scored another goal to reclaim the lead. The rest of the half saw Ely getting frustrated and both sides had chances, Ely probably had the lion's share, but the sides went in at the break with Debnham in the lead. 

Ely looked a lot more resolute in the second half and were helped by playing with the wind rather than against it. Seymour knocked one into the top corner on 63 minutes from a set piece before Nathan Littlefair scored his first goal for the club. What a vital goal it was to be too, as it ended up being the winner.
