Ryman Div 1N: Waltham Abbey 3 Barkingside 1; Redbridge 0 Ware 0
History repeated itself as Barkingside returned to Capershotts to face Waltham Abbey for the second time in four days.
Having lost 3-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday and finished with 10 men after Joe Ellul’s late red card, Matt Frew’s men went down by the same margin in their Ryman One North meeting – with substitute Matt Waldron dismissed soon after coming off the bench to replace Dan Callaway.
The scoreline remained blank until the 56th minute, when James Peagram put the home side ahead.
Barkingside hit back just four minutes later through Dan Jones, but their joy was shortlived as Jason Hallett put Abbey 2-1 up on 64 minutes.
Jon Docker sealed the points from the penalty spot 11 minutes from time to leave Frew to focus on Saturday’s clash with Great Wakering.
Barkingside: Clark, Hayes, Callaway (Waldron 74), Ellul, Ellis, Oxby, Jones, Bricknell (Taylor 82), Carvell, Gulfer, Poku. Unused subs: Georgiou, Leachman, Francis.
Redbridge had to settle for a point after a goalless stalemate at Oakside last night.
The home side had four gilt-edged chances to break the deadlock, hitting the woodwork twice, as honours finished even.
But joint boss Dave Ross looked on the positives, saying: “At least we’re creating chances. Nine times out of 10 we would take some of them normally.”
Motormen return to action with a trip to his former club Tilbury on Saturday.
Redbridge: Parker, Murphy, Parish, L Thomas, Scott, Carolan, Chambers, Damali, McKenzie, S Gent (Smith 74), Wallace. Unused subs: Fatai, Bansende, Spillman, Moses.
