Tilbury 2 Tooting and Mitcham 1 (Att 101)

A last minute Danny Glozier penalty saw the Dockers progress in the FA Trophy and also saw the visitors finish the game with 9 men. The win saw the end of a very successful October for the club.
On a bright sunny afternoon, Tilbury made two changes from Tuesday's midweek draw, with Joe Nightingill and Andy Edmunds replacing Danny Smith and Jimmy Cook. The opening period was quiet with both sides having half chances. On 16 Neil Richmond turned well and volleyed, but saw a fine save from Matt Pierson. Tooting's Jake Baxter had 2 good efforts in as many minutes midway through the half when he struck the bar and also had an effort well blocked. The visitors did the lead on 37 when a break down the right found Gareth Chendlik who hit his low shot home past Bogard. Tilbury replied almost immediately when an Emiel Aiken cross found Matt Game who flicked the ball to Tony Martin on the edge of the area to fire home.
Tilbury came out after the break stronger and centre half Joe Nightingill volleyed over and Neil Richmond was also denied. On the hour the excellent Matt Game almost capped a great afternoon with a blistering effort that went over. Serge Makofo went close on 77 when he was played in. Tooting lost there discipline late in the game when Antonio Simone was dismissed for throwing an arm towards Harry Cook. Tilbury try to take advantage of the man advantage and thought they had won the tie in the 85th minute. A long range Tony Martin free-kick was parried to Jack Carlile to slot home, but was ruled offside.
With both sides settling for a replay, Kurt Smith ran in to the box was brought down, giving the referee no option than to point to the spot. Danny Glozier scored from the spot to see Tilbury win.
There was still time for Tooting's Christiano Neto to pick up his second yellow card leaving the visitors playing the remaining injury time with 9 men. In injury time saw new signing Ross Elsom come on for Matt Game for his debut.
After the game Manager Gary Henty commented “In the first half we were not ourselves, but delighted with the second half performance and we reacted well to going behind"
The result sees Tilbury awaiting opponents in the 2nd qualifying round on Monday. The Dockers return to league action on Tuesday, when they visit much improved side Waltham Abbey.
