Tilbury 2 Thamesmead Town 1

Tilbury continued there good recent home form with a hard fought win over Thamesmead on a wind swept evening. The result sees Tilbury win there 4th consecutive home game. After Saturday's draw at Heybridge, manager Gary Henty made 3 changes, with Harry Cook, Ellis Remy and returning Rimmel Daniel and they all played a big part in the victory.
With the strong wind behind the Dockers in the first half, Ellis Remy hit wide inside the first minute from a good Harry Cook run. Cook was in the think of the action on 3 when he got inside the box but was unfairly tacked and the referee pointed to the spot. Jack Carlile stepped up to score. Both sides did have good attacks with the ball in the Thamesmead area for long periods and Tilbury were coping well with the wind. On the half hour Ellis Remy's 30 yard free kick had to be well turned away by Budd. Assistant Manager Danny Smith also hit from distance, which Rob Budd dealt with well.
Thamesmead came out well after the break, but could not break down a well organised Tilbuy defence with Carlile, Nightingill and Sam West working well together to cut out any danger, giving Jack Giddens on his home debut a quiet time. On 67 Thamesmead did have a chance when Rob Cater had a golden effort from 6 yards to score, but failed to connect. Despite Tilbury being on the back foot for a period of time, Tilbury went further in front on 74 when substitute Tom Wood played a simple ball to Rimmel Daniel who hit left footed into the roof of the net. Thamesmead did eventually pull a goal back with 8 minutes remaining when a long ball from Thamesmead's own half found the head of Callum Macgeehan who scored. Tilbury held out well in the final seconds to take the 3 valuable points and lift Tilbury up 3 places to 15th.

After the game Manager Gary Henty said "I am pleased with our defence on a difficult night and to make 4 home wins on the trot is pleasing. He also said he was in advanced talks to sign 2 further players to boost his squad.
Tilbury are back in action on Saturday, when they welcome second place Harlow Town. 3.00pm
