TOWN SWEEP ASIDE LOCAL RIVALS

Above - The staring XI's for both Enfield Town and Ware
Some supporters could of asked which Enfield Town team was going to turn up this afternoon. Would it be the confident attacking side who beat AFC Sudbury 5-1 or the side who were turned over 0-4 at home to East Thurrock United in their last game??

Luckily for the Town fans present it was the former with another good performance and four goals against a Ware side who had previously won away at third placed Wingate and Finchley.

The victory puts Town into 9th position in the league table (up from 12th) and Ware now drop from 10th to 12th place. 

Town controlled the game from the outset with the midfield trio of Jones, Morton and Moore putting in sterling performances in support of Hope, Wallace and Osei up front. On the rare occasion that Ware did get forward they found the defence of Lockie, Kirby, McKay and Bardle along with goalkeeper Rob Blackburne in good form.

The clean-sheet was most welcome being Town's first in nineteen games since the FA Cup game at home to Worthing on the 26th September.

Town were 1-0 up at half time thanks to Jon Moore with the front three adding three more in the second half to make it 4-0. Moore could of scored again with a belter of a volley from outside of the box which was well saved by Murefu in the Ware goal.

Needham Market won the game of the day to make the race for the title even tighter and when was the last time Ilford, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Tilbury all won?? Congratulations to the now bottom four for getting all important wins. Ilford's 0-1 victory at Potters Bar Town was their first away from home this season and Waltham Forest's win was their first over AFC Sudbury in the seven attempts previous.

Town's next opponents, Waltham Abbey, won away from home at Great Wakering Rovers to go top of the last six form table making Tuesday night's local derby game a hotly anticipated and important one in the race to get back into the play-off mix up.
