Ryman One North: Redbridge 3 Waltham Abbey 2
Daniel Francis brace helped Redbridge get back to winning ways by the odd goal in five at Oakside against Waltham Abbey last night.
After a goalless first half, the game kicked into life in the second period and a spell of four goals inside six minutes.
Louis Bristow fired the Abbotts in front after 66 minutes, though their lead lasted just a minute when Ben Bradbury equalised for the Motormen.
But in this end-to-end period the experience Marvin Samuel restored the visitors lead once again, only for Francis to equalise for Dave Ross and Ricky Eaton’s side once more.
It looked like remaining that way until five minutes from time when Francis scored his second of the night to secure all three points for the hosts, and produce the perfect response to Saturday’s 5-0 defeat against the in-form Romford.
The games continue to come thick and fast for the Motormen, who are back in action on Thursday night when they head to Burnham Ramblers, with just one place separating the two sides going into the encounter.
Redbridge: Driscoll, Bansende, Parish, T Thomas, Good, Damali, Bradbury (Aiken 88), Henty, Francis, Charge, Thompson (Matthews 88),.
Unused substitutes: L Thomas, Hussein, Dobson
