Tilbury 1 Norwich United 2 (Att 54)

A brace from Christy Finch saw Norwich United come from behind to win at a cold Chadfields and dent Dockers play off chances. .  

Tilbury started well with Kurt Smith denied by a fine Wilton save. Midway through the half Adam Hipperson saw his effort brilliantly saved by Lee Butcher before Steve Shipley struck the bar from distance. On 29 Butcher was again the saviour with another outstanding save from Hipperson. On 30 Toby Aromolaran saw his shot deflected over the top and Tilbury pushed hard. Tilbury took the lead on 32 when a Conor Mead shot was blocked, but Ryan Melaugh followed up to score on his debut. Mead again had a shot on target before the break, abut he saw his shot well blocked on the line. 

Tilbury started the second half well, but t was the visitors who scored on 64, when a break on the left found Christy Finch who side footed home. Tilbury defender Joe Nightingill had to be at best 2 minutes later when he bravely saved, after a good break away. The all important goal came with 13 minutes remaining when Christy Finch 25 yards out unleashed his effort into the roof of the net, for a fine individual goal. 

The visitors had the ball on the net 4 minutes later, but were denied by the assistant's flag. Tilbury pushed hard, but could not break Norwich United down. 

Tilbury sit in 12th place in the league.
