LEON AND LIAM SCORE AS TOWN WIN AGAIN
It was a completely different game from Tuesday night's 0-6 victory against Brentwood but just as impressive and rewarding as Town worked hard to gain a 2-0 victory against a good AFC Sudbury side at Goldsdown Road yesterday.
The centre back pairing of Mark Kirby and in particular Craig McKay put in a very strong display in stopping many of the attacks the away side had. The cold end lost count at how many headers McKay won in the box which earned him the well deserved Man of the Match award.
On the very rare occasion Sudbury's play got through the duo they found Rob Blackburne in excellent form who kept another deserved clean sheet. Jordon Lockie at right back and Jey Siva at left back also put in sterling shifts in helping the Town to another very important three points. Lockie's cross from the right wing after beating two players set up Leon Osei for the first goal and Siva's impressive run into box set up Liam Hope for the second desicive goal.
An important win which reminded the cold end of Town's 2-0 victory over Northwood almost a year ago on the 20th February 2010 which was 0-0 at half time and two goals in the second half saw off strong opponents. Leon Osei was in the opposition side that day - thankfully he now wears a Town shirt!!!
There is still much football to be played but this victory combined with Romford's loss at Grays Athletic put's Town into the play off zone in the league table that includes Leyton's results. Disregard Leyton's results and we are just outside of the all important top five. The Ryman League are still to make the decision of keeping the East London sides results or expunging their record??
Next up for Enfield Town in part one of the 'A10 EL CLASSICO' when local rivals Cheshunt visit Goldsdown Road on Tuesday night. The Ambers are down in 17th place and have only won once in the last six games (that was against Needham Market 2-0 at home on 5/2/11) but always seem to raise their game for the local derby battle against Enfield Town. If your a Town fan that is reading this and hasn't been down for a while why not come down and support the Town to another victory.
Forget Spurs on the television - you local club needs your support!
