Canvey Island v Enfield Town

Recommended Posts

After an excellent result at Kingstonian earlier in the week, Town will travel in confident mood to The Frost Financial Stadium tomorrow (Saturday) to face Canvey Island in the Ryman Premier Division.

 

This is a reverse fixture of our opening match of the season at the QE2 Stadium, when Tyler Campbell popped up with a late equaliser to secure us a deserved share of the points in a 1-1 draw.

 

Last season we came away empty-handed from Canvey, following a 2-0 defeat. In the return match we balanced the books with a 2-1 home victory, with a brace from Tyler Campbell. Another tight match in prospect tomorrow, but Town will be hoping to put one over The Gull's, before we host them next weekend in The FA Trophy.

 

All the very best to Brad and boys tomorrow. Hopefully, we will deliver another spirited performance, to chalk up our second away win of the week.

 

Good luck everyone. Enjoy the match!

Full-time   Canvey Island  1-5  Enfield Town
 

Well, well, well, who could have predicted that score. Great result, congratulations and very well done to Brad and the lads. Let's hope we have saved some goals in the locker for when we meet them in the FA Trophy next Saturday. One way or another it has been a good week for Town. Two away wins on the bounce, six points, and six-goal improvement to our goal difference. Keep it going guys, you have settled a few nerves, and made a lot of people very happy!

Can't wait to read the comments on todays performance and result.

Superb... Last week I heard someone shout 'you might as well give up Brad' when Wingate scored and 'get him off the pitch' at one of our players... Sure whoever shouted that would of been cheering today.

Why oh why are some supporters berating those who criticised Brad after last weeks dire performance ? We had every right to feel disgruntled and he admitted in his local press interviews that it was bad himself. He has responded to the criticism well with two very good away wins and restored my faith in him as the right man to lead us forward. As the manager of our team he'll enjoy the plaudits tonight, just as he should accept the perfectly justifiable criticism of last week.

Just making a point i suppose - We have got one of the best young managers at this level of football who is learning his trade.... to berate him after a bad performance surely is counter productive.... or as the last two results have shown maybe productive so maybe I'm wrong.

I don't think your wrong ColdEnd.

Bradley doesn't need berating and it certainly doesn't spur him on anymore than his own self motivation levels.

 

Last weeks critics were of a very fickle nature, as it ignored our recent unbeaten run and concentrated on our first home defeat of 2016 instead. We all agreed it was a collectively poor team performance.

 

However, we've now won 2 games on the spin away from home and things are rosey again.

 

Not only that. We are currently without kirbs, Percy + Ottaway and put Parcel, Campbell Collins and Devyne on the bench. On top of that I still think we need a natural goal scorer and a centre half. We are 7th, getting wins home and away but still feel it's work in progress, in other words Brads management/coaching skill are very good in fact excellent, bearing that in mind.

 

As for today- We would've won if it was 11v11, however it became evident there would only be one winner at 11v10 , I counted 7 attempts on target including penalty, the finishing was ruthless.

Maybe the deserved questioning of the wingate perfomance spurred Brad and the players on to their first away wins of the season.Two great away wins.Not sure if we have turned the corner just yet though.Still feel we are as likely at the moment to lose two on the bounce as we are to win two.The acid test will come if we can get results against fellow top half sides.But the last two performances have been very promising and a big well done to brad and the team.Lets hope its the start of a strong push towards the play-offs.

One of the interesting things from yesterdays game was that we saw the best and the worst of Tayshen.

 

His defence splitting pass of over 40 yards led to Canvey's first goal but his sending off was well deserved.

Around 2 minutes before his sending off I noticed that he had his arms on his hips as he was seeking breath.

It is clear that he lacks stamina or does not pace himself adequately and that may have led to the disastous

foul. If he could pace himself he would be a better player.

 

His midfield roving role obviously suited him but he appears to have adopted Canvey's rough style of play as

well though he was always hot-headed.

I thought we would still have won if they had the full 11.

I saw Tayshans challenge as a stonewall red, he left the ground, flew across into a challenge and was out of control with his body, whether Bradley made the most of the challenge is irrelevant as it was Tayshans actions that were dangerous

 

Red all the way in my opinion

      Good to drawn at home in the FA Cup today. An interesting match for everyone to look forward to. Be interested to hear other Towners thoughts, hopes, expectations for this match, which is worth quite a lot of prize money for the winners.

      Despite heavy rain, after a mid-morning pitch inspection, todays League fixture against Harrow Borough at Earlsmead Stadium, is expected to go ahead, subject to there not being a deluge before kick off.

      Town have already played Harrow twice this season at the QE2 Stadium, beating their Middlesex rivals 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup, and 3-0 in the League on New Year's Day.

      Todays third encounter will be far from a pushover, and Town will need to build on their recent improved performances and results, if we are to collect maximum points on this wet Bank Holiday afternoon. Good luck to Andy and the boys!  COYT

      Tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon Town extend a warm welcome to our opponents Met Police for our third Bostik League Premier Division fixture of the season at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. KO 3.00pm.
       
      Last Tuesday evening, while we were losing 3-0 at Hendon in a challenging North London derby, the Blues went down by a similar margin, losing 4-1 away to newly promoted side Dorking Wanderers. The Met won their opening home match, beating Worthing 3-1 at Imber Court.
       
      Both teams will be looking to bounce back this weekend, after their disappointing mid-week defeats, and another very close, tight contest is in prospect.
       
      Next April is a long way off, there are 44 more league fixtures left, so plenty of points to play for, and Andy, Darren, and our new squad of players, deserve plenty of noisy support and encouragement tomorrow, as they battle to secure our first win of the season.
       
      GOOD LUCK, LADS!

      READY TO GO!
       
      It's back, and there is plenty to look forward to on Saturday afternoon, when Town host Folkestone Invicta at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, in our opening Bostik League Premier Division fixture.
       
      After all the comings and goings during the summer, optimism is high that Town can make a good start to the new season, with our new management duo Andy Leese and Darren Purse in charge, and an impressive squad of quality close season signings.
       
      Be interesting to hear peoples thoughts on how Town are probably going to line-up against Invicta on Saturday afternoon.
       
      Folkestone seem likely to be without striker Joe Taylor and influential mid-fielder Micheal Everitt for this match. Taylor has damaged his knee, whilst Everitt picked up a groin strain last weekend.
       
      Last season, back in April, Town beat Invicta 3-1 at the QE Stadium. Will we chalk up another win? What do you think? How do you see the outcome?
       
      One thing for sure, this is going to be another close, very exciting match. Let's be there to show our support for Andy and our guys, as they look to deliver our first win of the new season.

      Earlier today Town travelled up to the West Midlands for a commemorative friendly match against Highgate United at The Coppice this afternoon (3.00pm).

      The match has special significance for those of us who were at that fateful Highgate United v Enfield FC, FA Amateur Cup game, 50 years ago, and witnessed Highgate player Tony Allden being struck by lightning and dying shortly after.

      Today, as we remember that very sad event, the occasion and ongoing friendship between the two clubs, seems much more important than the outcome.
