The Motormen came from behind to win 2-1 at Theobolds Lane Stadium and get their title challenge back on track thanks to goals from strikers Brian Moses and Calvin Poku.

Eaton and Joe May’s men are joint-top with Great Wakering Rovers in the Essex Senior League after that victory.

“We’re really delighted and even more delighted with the performance,” Eaton said.

“Going away to FC Romania is always going to be difficult and with the weather the way it was, so cold and snowing we thought the game was in doubt, so to go down there and come from 1-0 down to win the game in the end all the lads are ecstatic.

“Joe and I are really pleased.”

The boss believes it’s been a tough week with multiple games for his side but praised his substitutes for their impact off the bench.

“It’s been a difficult week for all concerned and the boys who come off the bench Reside Coxi-Sebastfao, Lindsipho Mtyanda and Calvin Poku Poku all changed the game around for us so fair play to all three of them.

“Especially Poku who ended up getting an assist on Brian Moses equaliser and then he went on to score the winner himself so I was really proud of Calvin.

“He has been tremendous this season for us, great attitude and a great player to have.”

The former London Bari manager believes the title race is still wide open and expects plenty more movement in the league table.

“It’s always going to be a battle, there will be many more up and downs I’m sure for all concerned at the top of the table.

“We’re in the best position possible especially considering some of our recent results so we’re really pleased to be back joint-top and have a little bit of an edge over some of the teams trying to chase us.”
