Redbridge midfielder Patrick Duggan’s screamer wasn’t enough as they suffered their fifth home defeat of the season, losing to 10-man St Margaretsbury on Saturday.

Goals from Charncey Dash and Dan Ferrigno at both ends of the match secured St Margaretsbury the three Essex Senior League points.

But David Green’s sending-off gave Redbridge hope to get back into the match as Duggan’s long-range strike cannoned off the underside of the bar to pull one back on his return from injury.

The visitors went ahead in the fourth minute after Dash’s curling free kick went past keeper Lewis Greene and into the bottom left corner of the net.

Both teams created chances in the first half in this head-to-head encounter but Redbridge nearly pulled it level after a fine header from striker Calvin Poku was tipped over by goalkeeper Brad Robinson.

Redbridge lost a player early on through injury as Glody Nsamu came away from a strong challenge needed to leave the stadium on crutches.

St Margaretsbury could have extended their lead shortly after Green played through Dash who went past the keeper and look destined to score, but Daniel Smith tracked back to save the ball off the line.

Redbridge continued to press for an equaliser in the first half but were halted by Robinson’s double save from substitute Bryan Kyungu and Terrell Miller.

With the match heating up with end to end action, Redbridge couldn’t find an equaliser as St Magaretsbury held on despite seeing Green sent off for a crunching challenge on Vinny Murphy as Motormen were left winless on home soil in five matches.

Redbridge: Lewis Greene, Vinny Murphy, Marcus Carter, Liam Burgess, Quincy Egebejale, Glody Nsamu, Daniel Smith, Terrell Miller, Calvin Poku, Jack Stevenson, Larry Asare.
