Tonbridge Angels 2 - 1 Thurrock

Thurrock edged out by Angels

Thurrock are yet to get any away points on the board and unfortunately the drought continued against Tonbridge Angels. A goal either side of the half time break gave Angels the advantage but once more Thurrock’s never give up determination almost got a point with a 90th minute goal and a very near miss in the 93rd.

Tonbridge signalled their intent early on as Nathan Elder met a free kick and his header flicked off the crossbar. Thurrock responded as Remi Sutton carried the ball down the left wing before cutting back to Joe Christou to hit first time but high. The midfield played the ball around before Dennis Oli got himself between two defenders forcing Jonathan Henly to rush out and smother at his feet.

Both sides continued to probe but weren’t able to win more than corners that the respective defence dealt with. As the half drew to a close Nathan Elder was able to pounce on a loose ball after a free kick and poke home from close range.

Half Time: Tonbridge Angels 1 – 0 Thurrock

Six minutes into the second half and Tonbridge extended their lead as Jack Parter made some space from a throw and his hard low cross was turned home by Alex Akrofi.

Again, Thurrock chased the game looking to reduce the deficit. Sutton surged forwards again to see his shot blocked, follow ups from Christou and Reece Morgan were also charged down. Timothy Ogunrinde progressed on the right flank bypassing his defender with a one-two with Dennis Oli but shooting wide. Dennis Oli is played into the area and goes down but appeals are waved away.

Tonbridge continue to deal with Thurrock’s efforts until the very last minute when Lewwis Spence climbs highest to meet Ogunrinde’s cross and head home. A last throw of the dice in added time and the ball bounces around the area before being hoofed to safety.
