Norwich United fell to a third consecutive defeat at Heybridge Swifts despite a spectacular equaliser from Adam Hipperson just before half-time.

Heybridge led from the 32nd minute when Harrison Chatting latched onto a Juan Luque through ball and slotted the ball under the advancing Andy Wilton.

Hipperson levelled the scores six minutes later when he combined well with Nathan Stewart before the latter was fouled just outside the area. Hipperson stepped up to curl the free-kick into the top corner.

The Planters’ hopes took a big blow within a minute of the restart when a ball from the right across the edge of the area reached Luque who hit his shot back across Wilton and just inside the far post.

Swifts sealed the points eight minutes from time, when second-half substitute Matt Price cut in from the left and hit a shot just inside the near post.

The Planters need to pick themselves up when they visit Witham Town on Saturday.
