Ryman Div 1N: Barkingside 1 Wroxham 1
Calvin Poku’s last-minute goal earned Barkingside a crucial point against relegation rivals Wroxham at Oakside last night.
Manager Matt Frew had called it his side’s biggest match of the season and it proved a tense affair, with the scoreline remaining blank until the 85th minute.
The home side, having lost 3-0 at Thurrock at the weekend, looked to be heading for another defeat as they fell behind when Joe Marsden put the Yachtsmen ahead.
But Poku popped up in the nick of time to ensure honours finished even and edge Frew’s men away from the bottom three.
Barkingside are due to visit high-flying Witham next on Thursday, while landlords Redbridge welcome Heybridge Swifts to Oakside tonight and visit Tilbury two days later.
Ilford 1 Eton Manor 2
Ilford let a lead slip on their way to Essex Senior League defeat at Cricklefield Stadium last night.
Joe Maskell gave the Foxes the lead, but Manor hit back with a brace to gain the upper hand before the break.
Ilford boss Martin Haywood sent Jonathan Adebayo on for Eden Nelson during the interval, but the scoreline remained unchanged.
The Foxes, who were beaten 3-2 by Haringey Borough at the weekend, are next in action on Saturday when Sporting Bengal are the visitors.
