With just a minute on the clock Halstead were forced to twice clear off the line from a corner, with Mildenhall finally breaking the deadlock when a Graham Rush-Matt Clements free-kick routine left Halstead unable to clear and Goddard banged the ball home from 10 yards.

The hosts doubled their lead after 28 minutes when Simon Betts was penalised for a challenge on Clements in the box and Goddard duly converted the spot kick.

The game followed the same pattern after the break with Mildenhall frequently on the attack.

Hammond rattled the underside of the bar before keeper Paul Rutherford held the rebound safely, while at the other end, Driver went near with a clever lob.

Mildenhall were much the better side, overall, however and probably should have won by more.

Despite the comfortable win, Mildenhall are now behind Needham Town on goal difference, after they crushed Woddbridge 5-0
