Mildenhall Town 2
Fakenham Town 0
Wayne Anderson admitted his Fakenham side “were not at the races” as they fell to a first Thurlow Nunn Premier Division defeat in seven matches.
Manager Anderson’s players were beaten in Suffolk by a goal in each half and struggled to assert themselves on the game.
He said: “We never got going right from the start and conceded what were two poor goals.
“It was a bad day at the office for us but that happens in football.
“I didn’t tear into the lads after the game because I don’t need to – they are a good bunch and they know they were poor.
“We have been very good in the last few weeks and to have 30 points on the board before Christmas is brilliant so we will dust ourselves down and go again.”
James Paterson put Mildenhall in front in the 22nd minute, capitalising on a quick counter-attack, and the second goal came on 54 minutes as Steve Holder headed a free kick to beat Tommy Rix. Fakenham are in sixth spot.
