Barkingside manager Michael Walther pleased with his side despite suffering a 1-0 defeat to neighbours Ilford this weekend.

James Peagram notched the only goal of the game in the 68th minute for the Foxes to move them up to seventh place in the Essex Senior League whilst the defeat sent Side down to 13th.

“To be honest it’s difficult at the moment for me to be negative as although we were on the end of another single goal defeat we dominated the first 45 minutes of the game,” Walther said.

“We created chances and didn’t put them away.

“Second-half it was more even and you could say they slightly edged it, but the only shot our keeper had was the goal they scored.”

The boss praised Ilford for holding on and taking the three points in the Cricklefield derby.

“From the Ilford point of view they’ve got a very resilient side and they’ve walked away with the points, which is the main thing.”

It was third straight league defeat for Walther’s men but the manager remains positive with his squad and how they’re performing.

“Although the results are not going our way I’m pretty positive,” he said.

“The only thing negative I could say about the performance is we should be having more shots at goal and with the forwards we now have at the club we should scoring at least one goal a game.”

Barkingside will now travel up the A12 to play fourth-placed outfit Basildon United tomorrow evening (7.45pm kick-off).
