Tilbury were denied the points by Wakering's Adam Seal's superb penalty save, as Great Wakering Rovers snatched a draw at Chadfields.
It was man of the match Seal who threw himself to his right to keep out substitute Tom Wood with 14 minutes remaining to keep the game goal-less, in a game that didn’t offer much in terms of opportunities.

Both sides struggled to make an impact in the opening exchanges at a sunny Chadfields. With the game quite scrappy and in the middle of the pitch both sides had lack of goalmouth chances. On 16 Seal made a mistake and the ball fell to Babalola who tried to round the keeper, who smothered well.

Another lapse in concentration saw Tilbury go close before the break when Tony Martin couldn't beat Seal, as he tipped his effort away.

The second-half offered more with the visitors starting brightly. On 57 a mistake by Matt Game let in Jay Nash who saw his effort saved by Lamar Johnson. The best chance of the afternoon fell to Trenkel who picked up on a poor back pass and with Johnson kicking the ball straight to the player, Johnson had to redeem himself with a fine save.

Tilbury responded when Babalola, burst through and crashed an effort at goal, only to be denied by a superb block by Rovers captain Lewis Sparrow. Skelton cleared off the line from the resulting corner when Babalola tried to overhead his effort. With 76 gone, Tilbury were awarded a penalty kick when Billy Radley, who had been booked 2 minutes earlier, lunged in on substitute Rimmel Daniel and was shown a second yellow giving the referee the easy choice to point to the spot, but the excellent Seal was not to be beaten, and he flung himself to his right to keep out Tom Wood.

And that was how it stayed, with Tilbury disappointed at just a point.

The result sees Tilbury remain in 12th place.

After the game Tilbury Assistant Manager Danny Smith commented "
It was a disappointing result for the boys as we have set high standards of late. We had chances to win the game with 2 one on ones and the penalty save" Spirit is still good and we move on to my old club Redbridge next Saturday.

L Johnson, E Johnson, Cook, Nightingill (Webb 81), Smith, Game, Flack, Carlile (Wood 34), Babalola, Martin, Aiken (Daniel 17)

Subs not used: Duarte and Henty
