Two in a row for Town

Enfield Town 2 Bishop's Stortford 1

Town made it two wins from their opening two matches with a 2-1 win over Bishops Stortford in their first home game of the season at the QES on Tuesday writes Aaron Patel.

From Saturday’s starting line-up, Town were without Aaron Greene, who had picked up a knock at Folkestone, and Bilal Sayoud came into the side to replace him.

The opening ten minutes saw Town dominate and control the centre of the park superbly. In the 12th minute they were rewarded for their hard work; on the edge of the box Sam Chaney received the ball from Remi Sutton, turned and tucked a right-footed shot into the bottom corner past Callum Kitscha’s right hand in the Bishops goal to give Town a 1-0 lead.

The visitors caught their first sight of goal in the 15th minute when Ryan Charles picked up the ball on the edge of the Town box, but his effort was just off target high and wide. Three minutes later, Bilal Sayoud’s left-footed effort from the right was held by Kitscha, as Town continued to press.

Stortford vociferously claimed a penalty when veteran striker Jamie Cureton was challenged by Taofiq Olomowewe, but referee Alex Rayment was unmoved. In the 25th minute, Town doubled their lead. Sam Hatton’s ball played over the top was brought down by Liam Hope, who controlled the ball and surged into the Stortford box, and setup Sam Youngs who tapped home to make it 2-0. A brilliantly worked goal that underscored Town’s excellent first 45 minutes. A Hope knock-down then found Lewis Taaffe, who shot just over.

By the half-hour mark, the visitors were slowly finding their feet but were unable to create many clear-cut opportunities in front of goal.

Half-time: Enfield Town Bishops Stortford 0

Three minutes into the second-half, another effort from Town man-of-the-match Youngs flashed just wide of the post, as Town picked up from where they had left off. But the visitors had come out after the break looking rejuvenated. Cureton saw his shot inside the box held by Joe Wright in the Town goal, as Stortford came forward more prominently.

After Chaney had blazed over, just beyond the hour mark Taaffe’s effort at the near post was turned behind for a corner by Kitscha, as Town looked to put the game to bed. Then, moments later, Charles’s effort for Stortford drifted just wide, as the visitors looked for a route back into the game. Then Chaney jinked through but fired narrowly wide.

With less than ten minutes to play, Stortford finally made the breakthrough. From a corner, skipper Lewis Dark rose highest to head home and pull one back for the visitors, to make it 2-1. A nervy finish for Town beckoned.

Deep into stoppage time, in the 91st minute, Cureton’s chipped effort from just inside the box flew just over the bar own saw off a late scare from Bishops Stortford. There was just time for Adams to chip over from a good position, and Town held firm to record the win.
