March Town United boss Paul Crosbie said flu-stricken midfielder Lewis Thompson will make tomorrow’s (Saturday) home game with Brightlingsea.

Crosbie added that it was a much better performance as the Hares were edged out 2-1 against Fakenham Town on Tuesday, when Thompson had to be subbed due to his illness.

Crosbie said of the Thurlow Nunn League Division One home game: “It encapsulated our season: we made two mistakes and conceded two goals.

“It built on where we were on Saturday with much improved commitment and attitude.”

Danny Emmington replied for the Hares with 15 minutes to go.
