Tilbury 3 Romford 1 (Att 81)

Tilbury came from behind and deservedly beat local rivals Romford on a wet afternoon at Chadfields. The results see's Tilbury unbeaten in 11 matches.
In a level first half, Tilbury's first effort of the afternoon fell to Kurt Smith, whose free kick was tipped over by Gooch. On 18 Emiel Aiken run through and hit a super effort just over the woodwork. Just before the break Romford's Giddings struck an effort that Bogard parried onto the post and McKenzie just missed the rebound.
Romford took the lead on 48 when a poor kick, lead to Chinedu McKenzie running through to slot home. Tilbury came into the game and struck twice in three minutes. On 62 a cross from Conor Mead, found Tony Martin to rise above the keeper and nod home. After further dominance it was only 3 minutes before Tilbury took the lead when a Kurt Smith corner found the back post and Emiel Aiken was left with the easy task to head home. Romford continued to push with the wind behind them, but were punished in the 74th minute when a Kurt Smith rasping free kick struck the bar and Jack Carlile was on hand to head into an empty net unchallenged. Tilbury made some late substitutions and saw the game out to leave themselves just outside the play-offs.
After the game Manager Gary Henty commented “Pleased with our football in the second half and run out worthy winners"
The result sees Tilbury move up one place to 6th. The Dockers return to cup action on Tuesday night, when they travel to Halstead in the Essex Senior Cup 3rd round.

Team: Bogard, C Mead, Glozier, D Smith, Pooley, Game Aiken (Babalola 78), Carlile, H Cook (Richmond 78), Martin, K Smith (Elsom 81)
