Essex Senior League: Woodford Town 1 Stansted 2
Woodford Town were left frustrated after an injury-time goal, via a set piece, gave Essex Senior League leaders Stansted all three points at the Harlow Arena on Monday night.
The result was harsh on Dee Safer’s men, who had dominated an absorbing encounter for long periods.
After enjoying most of the possession in the early exchanges, the Woods made their pressure count close to the half an hour mark when they took the lead.
Stansted failed to clear a corner and the ball come for Dejaune Taylor-Crossdale and he fired home via a deflection to make it 1-0 to the hosts.

In front of their vociferous supporters, Town looked for more goals and despite some enterprising play, it was the Airportmen who clinched the win with a late turnaround.
