Enfield 0-2 Redbridge
A bizarre moment on 4 mins from Louis Lancaster as a deep cross saw his attempted headed clearence crash off his own crossbar with E's new keeper Matt Mann stranded. Dave Bound was in the wars again as he was felled by Gary Skerrett but all he got was a talking to. A Julien Charles shot for Redbridge went narrowly wide. Matt Mann was required to make a good save from Julien Charles on 12 mins. Again Matt Mann saved well, this time from Chris Tedder on 18 mins. Nick Turner did well to cut out a good cross from Julien Charles .A chance for E's but Jon Stevenson blasted his quickly taken freekick over the top of Andy Hall's crossbar. Charlie Bull's shot flew over E's bar on 33 mins. E's were very lucky to survive a goalmouth scramble on 36 mins as Gary Skerrett's shot came down off the crossbar and twice the ball was blocked as E's defenders threw themselves in front of the ball. A shot by Charlie Bull was well over the top on 43 mins . H/T
2nd Half (Sam Judge on for Dave Bound) . A better opening to the 2nd half with E's finally looking like they were waking up but still Andy Hall had little to do in the Redbridge goal.And on 57 mins Mitch Hahn's cross landed perfectly for Ex Cheshunt striker Julien Charles to make no mistake from six yards.
