Town continued their winning ways and dented Upminster's 100% record with a gritty 2-0 win at the Selex this afternoon.

Manager Jason Emery had to re-shuffle his squad after Gary Morrison cried off through illness and Billy Balkwill pulled his hamstring in the warm-up. Town were able to draft in Tom Wolfe, who has been selected for the County U18 squad, allegedly the first player from the EOL to ever be selected! :applause:

Town pressured their visitors for the first 30 mins and deservedly took the lead in the 32nd min. A corner from Joe Corey was powerfully headed down and into the net from 12 yards by Josh Stead. Upminster upped their game and had chances to equalise but the score stayed the same until the break.

Town maintained their pressure in the second half but as time went on Upminster came back into the game. The visitors had a goal disallowed in the 77th min through offside but Town went up the other end and scored to put the game out of reach. A defensive mistake on the right of the penalty area was pounced on by Ross Barrett, who beat a couple of players to get into the box and then coolly finished from 12 yards to give Town an unassailable lead.So it's congrats to the management team of Jason Emery and Rob Pudney and a huge well-done to the team who never stopped running and harrassing the opposition, and thoroughly deserved their fourth win on the trot!

One of those games where the sun is high and hot and the pitch is bone hard, unusually for late September. This was a "ground out" result where both teams played their part. It was a case of the 3-5-2 of Town overcame the traditional 4-4-2 of Minster.
