Redbridge joint-manager Ricky Eaton is pleased with his side after they made it six wins in a row in the Essex Senior League.

The Motormen cruised to a comfortable 3-1 victory against strugglers Wadham Lodge thanks to three first-half goals at Oakside.

Eaton’s men now sit in second place behind Great Wakering Rovers on goal difference and the manager is delighted with their recent form.

“The boys are really performing well for us of late,” he said.

“Six wins on the spin I think that’s a club record for the last seven years.”

The boss admits he would took a win in any form to continue the run, but was pleased to comfortably pick up another three points.

“We would have taken a 1-0 win, but 3-1 I’m really pleased with that.

“We went a bit flat in the second-half, but when you’re 3-0 up at half-time it’s always hard.”

The hosts got off to a flying start as striker Brian Moses continued his prolific form in front of goal by netting in the 15th minute.

Calvin Poku extended his side’s lead when he slotted a shot home in the 27th minute to make it 2-0 and Eaton revealed his delight with the pair of strikers.

“It’s really pleasing Brian has been scoring consistently for a few weeks now and well Calvin has been injured, but we wanted to get him back in.

“Calvin has been struggling with a few injuries of late, but always scores when he’s in the team.

“They both keep getting on the score sheet when they play together as well, which is pleasing.”

Malaki Toussaint also got on the score sheet for Redbridge before Wadham Lodge scored one of their own through Naaman Gordon in the 84th minute.

Despite the score, Eaton praised the 20th place outfit for their efforts in the match.

“Wadham Lodge done well, especially with everything they’ve been through of late.

“They defended really well, got men behind the ball and planned to sit back, but once we got the first goal it settled us down and we then took more control.”
