Tilbury's recent up turn in form, saw them see off, out of form Dereham Town with goals in each half.

Joe Keith made two changes for the final home game of the season, with Ross Gleed and Toby Aromolaran returning to the side.

Tilbury for the 2nd successive game scored early. Toby Aromolaran flew down the right wing before, at the second attempt cross for Siju Odelusi, who struck right footed into the net. Odelusi was in the thick of the action and could have got his second on 19 when his 25 yard thunderbolt went just wide of the post. Substitute Dwade James was introduced on 29 minutes due to injury to Aromolaran and hit wide just a minute later as Tilbury pressurised Dereham.

Just before the break, the visitors had some pressure and went close from a corner.

Just 2 minutes in to the second half, Tilbury went further in front, when defender Ross Gleed ran down the left wing, before crossing onto the head of Siju Odelusi, who saw him direct his header onto the post, but Odelusi was first onto the rebound to follow up to score.

Defender Abdul Salami had to be at his best on 65 when Daniel Beaumont shot at goal, beat Clarke Bogard, but he cleared off the line to deny Dereham.

Late in the game and Tilbury in control, Lewis Jaggs went on a run that caused problems for Dereham.

In the final minute Siju Odelusi was put through for his hat- rick, but Elliot Pride saved well and Joe Paxman saw his follow up effort blocked we..

After the game manager Joe Keith commented "Pleasing way to finish our home season. A professional performance and a clean sheet"

The result sees Tilbury move up one place to 17th. Tilbury travel to Barking on Tuesday, before finishing the season away to Witham Town on Saturday.

Tilbury: Bogard, Jaggs, Gleed, Norman (Matthews 82), Salami, Jaffa, Paxman, Carlile, Odelusi, Keith (Little 70) and Aromolaran (James 29)

Subs unused Anderson and Turpin
