Redbridge made it 12 Essex Senior League wins in a row to move six points clear of FC Romania at the top of the table.

The visitors began well, forcing home keeper Steve French to make two early saves before Chid Onokwai was denied by a fingertip save from Lewis Greene at the other end.

A swirling wind and slippery pitch made things hard for both sides and the first half ended goalless as they came to terms with the conditions.

But Motormen opened the scoring after the restart, attacking quickly and seeing Brian Moses round French to slot home.

Forest were back on terms soon after, though, when Asher Modeste fired goalwards from the edge of the box and when ex-Forest keeper Greene let the ball slip from his grasp, Abdoulai Njai was on hand to smash the loose ball home.
Redbridge regained the lead, despite home protests about goalscorer Jacob Dingli being offside, and an unmarked Moses headed home at the far post as Forest again looked for a flag.

And the visitors completed their tally with virtually the last kick of the match through Reside Coxi-Sebastfao, although Forest were again incensed and claiming offside.

Redbridge are set to return to Oakside on Tuesday to host Stansted.
