Town triumph with late double

Enfield Town 2 Brightlingsea Regent 0

Two late goals saw off visitors Brightlingsea Regent at the QES yesterday, writes Aaron Patel.

Andy Leese made three changes from the previous starting line up; with Samir Bihmoutine unwell and both Dan Rumens and Jack Hockney injured, Taylor McKenzie, Sam Youngs and Dernell Wynter returned into the side. The opening ten minutes saw Town have the better of the early exchanges, but Regent fired a warning on 13 minutes when Aaron Condon’s effort from the edge of the box was held by Town keeper Joe Wright.

Approaching the half-hour mark, Matt Johnson’s header from a Youngs corner grazed the top of the bar after the former Chelmsford man rose highest but was unable to direct his header sufficiently downwards. A minute later, after some great build-up play from in midfield, Dernell Wynter was played through but his effort was blocked and then Brad Wadkins’ effort from the rebound was somehow cleared off the line by George Keys for a Town corner.

In the 33rd minute the visitors went desperately close when Condon’s chipped effort was touched onto the crossbar by Wright and the follow up from Josh Gould was headed straight into the clutches of the Town keeper. With five minutes of the first period remaining, both sides had good chances to take the lead. Firstly, Campbell’s half-volley from the edge of the box was gathered by Bradbrook, and then just as the half-time whistle was about to sound, Condon’s effort from just inside the box was well tipped over by Wright.

Half-time: Enfield Town 0 Brightlingsea Regent 0

If the first half had seen Town in the ascendancy, the second half belonged to the visitors for long spells. Jake Clowsley, arguably Regent’s most eye-catching performer on the day, cut in from the right, and had a shot with his left foot, but Town man-of-the-match Wright was equal to it once again.

Wynter made way for Ryan Blake on 70 minutes and, shortly afterwards, Campbell made way for Liam Hope. With fifteen minutes left to play both sides stepped up the intensity to break the deadlock, and Condon mustered another long-range effort from a good position, but it flew wide.

With both sets of supporters becoming increasingly resigned to a goalless stalemate, and with only a couple of minutes left on referee Tim Donnellan’s watch, one sub, Liam Hope, played another sub, Ryan Blake through, with an exquisite pass over his shoulder into space. Blake kept his cool, rounded Bradbrook and slotted the ball into the back of the net just inside the left-hand post, to effectively give Town the points. Less than two minutes later, and with the game now into stoppage time, Town doubled their lead with a similar looking move. Hope again played the ball to Blake, who burst away from the Regent back-line once more, but this time unselfishly squaring the ball to Aaron Greene who tapped home for 2-0.
