Essex Senior League: Stansted 1 Woodford Town 2

Woodford Town continued their mini revival after a hard fought 2-1 win at Stansted in front of their noisy away following.

Dee Safer's Side we're quickly out of the blocks playing some attractive football despite the bumpy playing surface at Hargrove Park and we're good value for a 2-0 lead courtesy of strikes from Normandy Kebi and Chris John.

The Airportmen did pull one back before half time and had the share of possession in a bad tempered second-half but the Woods dug in to ground out an important win to put them up to fifth place in the table.

Assistant Manager Neil Day was delighted with Woodford's resiliance after recent criticism about their defensive capabilities.

"There was some public criticism of our defence but in a way it galvanised us a group and the players concerned who wanted to prove a point," Day said.

"We really dug in against very tough opponents and in the end got what we deserved."
