Brightlingsea Regent 2 Tilbury 3 (Att 95)

Tilbury made it 6 undefeated, with another win and again, coming from behind to deservedly leave Brightlingsea with the points. 

Manager Gary Henty made three changes from the midweek win over Waltham Abbey, with Jimmy Cook and Danny Smith returning from injury and captain Jack Carlile from suspension. 

Tilbury drew first blood on 12 minutes, when Cook crossed in from the left following some build up play and found Emiel Aiken who smartly volleyed home for his 4th of the season. 

Brightlingsea had a good period when a free kick found Cripps who headed towards goal and was denied by the crossbar, before bouncing to safety. Reakes then went close when his header was somehow headed wide. 

Lee Bucher in the Tilbury goal then denied Reakes with a fine save. On 24 and with the ball looking to have gone out of play, Brightlingsea attacked and following a push in the box, the home side were awarded a penalty. Aaron Condon slotted home. The home side took the game to Tilbury and right on half time, were rewarded, when an Aaron Cordon left foot free kick, flew past Butcher into the net. 

Tilbury were back in the game within 6 minutes of the second period, Toch Singh struck the bar, as he followed up, Tilbury were awarded a harshly awarded penalty for a foul and Kurt Smith made no mistake from the spot. Tilbury had a good 10 minute period, with Richmond, Kurt Smith and Tony Martin all going close. With 8 minutes to go, the dangerous Matt Cripps almost stole all the points, when he headed over from a corner. Dwade James who had just been introduced as a sub, became the hero for the second game running. On 84 Emiel Aiken got down the right, crossed into the feet of James, who spun his defender, giving himself a scoring opportunity, that he duly applied with aplomb. Tilbury saw the game out and James did have another effort deep in to injury time, but Ollie Bowles saved well. 

The result sees Tilbury move up one place to 6th, just outside the play off places on goal difference. Tilbury now focus on cup football, as on Tuesday welcome Billericay Town in the Ryman League cup, before travelling to Lewes on Saturday in the FA Trophy.  

After the game manager Gary Henty commented "The lads showed great character to come from behind against a good Brightlingsea Regent team. Delighted with the win and to extend our unbeaten run. 

Tilbury: Butcher, C Mead, J Cook, D Smith, Benoit, Singh, Aiken, Carlile, Richmond (James 79), Martin, K Smith

Unused subs: Willis, Peddie, Odedoyin and Aromolaran
