Stuart Wardley’s Saffron Walden Town extended their winless run in all competitions to six after a 3-0 home defeat to mid-table Fakenham Town.

After a tight opening quarter of the game, Joel Glover eventually broke the deadlock after 22 minutes.

Glover used his pace to get past Perry Moody, moved into the box and coolly slotted past keeper Lee Pacey.

The mist came down on Catons Lane at the break and visibility was getting difficult in the second half.

The Bloods continued to push forward with substitute Shaun Avis going close but with less than 20 minutes to go Fakenham wrapped up the points.

Ashley Jarvis won the ball inside the Walden half and was given too much time to pick his spot and beat Pacey.

Charlie Portway did his best to try and salvage something for Walden but his header bounced back off the bar.

Seconds before the final whistle, the away side made it three.

Jarvis successfully lobbed the ball over Pacey and it just dropped under the bar for his second.

Walden will look to end their dismal spell at Ipswich Wanderers on Saturday.
