Essex Senior League: West Essex 0 Woodford Town 2

Woodford Town moved up to fifth in the Essex Senior League table following a 2-0 win at West Essex on Tuesday night.

Dee Safer’s team secured a third straight victory in the division to jump ahead of both Sporting Bengal United and Walthamstow from seventh spot.

After recent successes over the Stags and Enfield, the Woods were hoping to keep up their strong form in wet and windy conditions at Mayesbrook Park.

The first half was a quiet affair, but it didn’t take Woodford long to open the scoring after the interval.

Takudzwa Mashingaidze was the man to make the breakthrough and once in front the visitors never looked back.

It took a late effort by the talented Temi Babalola to wrap up the points at West Essex though, but this result increases confidence ahead of a busy upcoming period where Town will play three times in the space of six days - starting on Saturday.
