Redbridge suffered injury-time heartache for the second home game in a row in Ryman One North.

Having had victory snatched from their grasp by Cheshunt a week earlier, Motormen saw Kris Newby net in added time to earn high-flying Witham a point at Oakside yesterday.

The hosts went into the match on the back of a 5-3 derby win over tenants Barkingside, when Daniel Charge netted a hat-trick.

But Charge is unavilable at weekends and instead it was Kurt Smith, also on the mark on Monday, who put Motormen ahead on 27 minutes.

One goal looked like being enough until Newby broke Redbridge hearts late on. And joint bosses Dave Ross and Ricky Eaton will hope their men can make home advantage count when Heybridge visit on Tuesday.

Redbridge: Driscoll, Worrell, Bansende (Adelekan 85), Thomas, Good, Henty, Bradbury, Carlile, Smith, Caroolan (Dobson 56), Aiken (Francis 86).

Thurrock 3 Barkingside 0

Goalie Chris Clark saw red as Side sunk to defeat at Ship Lane.

Clark was given his marching orders on 36 minutes for handling outside the box and Fleet made the 10 men pay as David Knight’s second-half hat-trick settled the issue.

Knight broke the deadlock just past the hour, but the match remained in the balance until the final five minutes when he struck twice more to seal the points for the hosts.

Side remain one point above the relegation zone, after Erith & Belvedere slumped to a 6-2 home defeat against in-form Ware.

And Matt Frew’s men face a crucial clash with fellow strugglers Wroxham at Oakside on Monday.

Barkingside: Clark, Hayes, Rolls, Ellis, Ellul, Callaway, Davie (Edmunds 83), Carvell, Liddiard (Poku 90), Gulfer, Fontaine (Pitman 37). Unused subs: Waldron, Onireti.

Haringey Boro 3 Ilford 2

Ilford slipped to a second defeat in four days in the Essex Senior League.

Beaten 4-0 at home by Hullbridge in midweek, the Foxes found themselves two goals down in north London before Musa Mennah replied.

Aaron Harriot then got Martin Haywood’s men back on level terms, but their joy was shortlived as Haringey netted a decisive third.

Ilford return to Cricklefield Stadium to host Eton Manor tomorrow.

Ilford: Greene, Wetherall, Alexander, Mtyanda, Mennah, Hilton (White), Dobbs, Rix, Hoxhaj, Harriot (Nelson), Kwetgwe (Gardiner).
