Tilbury 1 Haringey Borough 1 (Att 58)

Tilbury and Haringey Borough had to settle for a point each, after a battling game at Chadfields. The visitors will be disappointed not to take all 3 points, with Tilbury holding on in the final 10 minutes. 

After just one minute Jack Barham was denied, before a minute later Haringey taking the lead, when a poorly directed header saw Anthony MacDonald latch on to score past Lee Butcher. Both sides had chances in the following 10 minutes, with Lewis Francis crossing only to see a misdirected pass back, go just wide and a cross from Daniel Aristidou, that saw Butcher off his line, and tipped the ball onto the line, before Joe Nightingill cleared to safety. Tilbury had a succession of corners, but could not find the killer touch. On 28 Adrian Markus went round Butcher only to see his effort into an empty net go wide. Markus was again found in space 5 minutes later and put his shot wide of the post. Tilbury equalised on 37 minutes when Neil Richmond was harshly adjudged to have been brought down in the box and Kurt Smith scored from the spot. 

Tilbury started the second half well, but Haringey were a danger from quick breaks. On 74 Markus was one on one with Butcher and from no where Reece Hewitt tracked back and got his foot in, before the shot was unleashed. Ralston Gabriel was the next visitor to see his effort well saved by Butcher. The introduction of Chris Benjamin caused Tilbury problems and within seconds struck from distance that hit the inside of the post. With 5 minutes to go, Haringey had 2 chances within 10 seconds, firstly Benjamin denied by Butcher and Macdonald hitting wide. 

Deep into injury time Gabriel saw his effort striking the bar and Benjamin had the chance to tap home, but lost his footing. 

The final whistle went and Tilbury would have been the happier of the sides, as they held onto take a point that leaves them 10th, 3 points outside the play off places. 

Assistant Manager Danny Smith commented after the game "It was a point gained, rather than two points dropped. It was a disappointing performance, but we remain in touch with the top five.  


The Dockers are without a midweek game and travel to AFC Hornchurch on Saturday.   

Tilbury: Butcher, Mead, Conway, Peddie, Nightingill, Singh, Francis, Carlile, Barham, Richmond (D Smith 77) and K Smith (Hewitt 50)
