In a game that was big for Wroxham, Redbridge were clinical in taking their chances and left the visitors with a real challenge for Ryman One North survival.

It was the visitors who had the better of the first half and the best chance of the opening period fell to Tim Cary. Stephen Drake had the ball just inside the edge of the area and slid the ball to Cary in acres of space only for him to hit the post.

Redbridge seemed to lack the quality in and around the goal, and the only real shot came from Daniel Francis from the left corner of the box and it was easily saved by Robert Juhasz.

In the second half the home side were much better and had appeals for a penalty turned down by the referee as Aiken was seemingly tripped inside the box.

Wroxham had a good break down the right hand side and skipper Daniel Self headed it back into the centre only for the resulting header to be cleared off the line and it went out for a corner. In the 57th minute, Remy Gordon burst through one-on-one with the goalkeeper and slid the ball just wide of Dean Driscoll. Gordon then put a header from close range over from a corner minutes later.

Redbridge responded well as Bostry Bansende hit a decent shot from the edge of the box and it was the first time Juhasz was really worked

And the Motormen managed to gain the lead the 72nd minute as Francis had the ball on the left hand side and passed it across the goalmouth and it deflected off a Wroxham defender and into the net.

From the kick off, Redbridge were at it again and attacked the weary Wroxham defence again and from a corner the ball fell to Stephen Good who whipped the ball into Francis who flicked the ball into the back of the net.

Ben Bradbury fancied getting himself a goal and attempted a speculative effort from the edge of the box which went just over the bar.

Wroxham were desperately fighting to get back into the game and split open the Redbridge defence and played a decent ball across the box only for Daniel Smith to come across and clear the ball.

Three minutes from time Redbridge made sure of all three points when Bradbury picked up the ball on the edge of the area and hit a brilliant shot over the goalkeeper and into the top corner.

The frustration was clearly getting to Wroxham and captain Daniel Self slid in with two feet and was very lucky to remain on the pitch.

But the hosts made it four when Bradbury received the ball 30 yards from goal and spotted the run from Francis.

He slid the ball through for the striker and he comfortably slotted it in to the far corner to complete the emphatic win.

Redbridge: Driscoll, Bansende, Parish (Adelekan 65), Good, Smith, Worrell, Bradbury, Carlile, Francis, Aiken, Adamou (Dobson 74)
