Cricklefield manager watched best in division go head to head on Tuesday night

After watching the top two in the Essex Senior League go head to head on Tuesday, Allan Fenn is urging his Ilford team to find more consistency, starting against Sporting Bengal United this weekend.

Barking and Haringey Borough played out a goalless draw this week and the Foxes manager doesn’t believe his team are too far away.

But he has called on his Ilford players to start performing on a more regular basis.

“The problem we have got is Barking and Haringey have both got experience,” said Fenn.

“That counts for a lot in football and in any sport.

“Barking and Haringey have eight or nine players available every week as well and we don’t.

“In terms of quality, and I am not looking at this through rose-tinted glasses, we are better than them both. Our problem has been consistency.”

Ilford faced lowly Greenhouse last night (Wednesday) and achieved a 2-1 victory with Carl Mullings scoring a last minute winner.

They visit bottom club Bengal this weekend. And Fenn had warned prior to the win against Greenhouse that his side needed to take three points from both fixtures.

He added: “We want a successful second half of the season.”
