Enfield Town 3 Burgess Hill Town 2

Match report by Aaron Patel

On a cold and damp Tuesday night at the QEII Stadium Town at last broke their barren sequence of nine games without a win against a spirited Burgess Hill.

It took Town just three minutes to take the lead; Mickey Parcell’s cross from the edge of the box on the right was headed in by on loan centre back Taofiq Olomowewe. Three minutes later, Ryan Blake’s cross found Liam Hope who scuffed his shot, and then Tyler Campbell’s header was just wide.

In the 12th minute Town doubled their lead when, from a Hillians corner, Town hit the visitors on the break. Sam Youngs’ pass found Blake who was just onside, as he slotted the ball past James Shaw in the Burgess Hill goal to make it 2-0 to Town.

Town began to play with some freedom now, and Youngs’ effort from 20 yards out was just wide of the post. In the 18th minute Campbell attempted an audacious chip, but saw his effort go well over. Seven minutes later, Ryan Blackman’s cross deep from the right was headed just wide by Blake, as Town went close again. John Kyriacou replaced Samir Bihmoutine who had picked up an injury after 23 minutes.

Moments later Blackman was in the thick of the action as he broke into the Burgess Hill box with a strong run and nearly squeezed the ball in from a tight angle, but his effort went behind for a goal-kick. In the 38th minute Hill recorded their first shot on goal of the game when Connor Tighe’s first-time effort from twenty yards out flashed past the right-hand post. However, three minutes later Town underlined their dominance with a third; Blake was rolled through by substitute John Kyriacou and he tapped home to make it 3-0 at the break.

HT: Enfield Town 3-0 Burgess Hill

Minutes after the restart, Town almost scored a fourth. The ball fell to Hope inside the box and his snapshot was pushed up onto the bar by Shaw. In the 54th minute Ibrahim Forfana went close for the visitors as his shot went narrowly wide after good work from Tighe down the right. Then on approaching the hour mark Hill pulled one back. From a Joey Taylor corner from the right, the ball was bundled home by skipper Jack Brivio from a few yards out. The visitors then began to enjoy a good spell of possession as they found some rhythm.
Tighe’s shot from the edge of the box in the 70th minute went just wide as they sensed a way back into the game.

With three minutes to play, Town almost wrapped up the game when Hope’s dipping effort from the edge of the box just cleared the bar after Parcell found the striker in space. Two minutes later, Parcell’s shot across goal from the right went just wide of the far-post.

Deep into stoppage time, Hill scored a last-gasp goal when substitute Aaron Smith- Joseph’s cross was headed in by another sub Hafeesz Sanusi. Thankfully, from Town’s perspective, there was no time for an equaliser. It was disappointing that all the fine work done in the first half was rather spoiled by a poor second-half showing which nearly proved their undoing.
