Ely City 1 Walsham-le-Willows 1

HAVING lost 3-2 at home to Wisbech Town the previous Tuesday, the Robins needed to stop the rot at home to Suffolk side Walsham-le-Willows.

They fell behind to a goal from Proctor, but equalised in the 42nd minute when a free-kick was headed back across the area and Lee Dixon found the net.

City got the upper hand after the break, but couldn't manage a second goal and it finished 1-1.

"We had enough chances at the end of the game to pinch it," said Ely boss Dennis Lightning. "But it was a good game and they (Walsham) are a useful side, and they are on a roll."
