Thurrock 3 - 1 Enfield Town

By Dom Baker

New signing Joe Oseyemi made his debut as the Fleet hosted Enfield Town. The visitors came into today’s tie in 16th, the hosts just two places above in 14th.

The first chance fell to Enfield on the 3rd minute. Ryan Blake held the ball up well and span into the box before fizzing a half volley goal-wards. Ben McNamara stood up well to deny the striker and send it out for a corner. Thurrock countered quickly from the poor corner ball through Timothy Ogunrinde who jinked past his man to force a corner of Thurrock’s own.

In the 9th minute Thurrock got forward once again. Ogunrinde led the attack on the right, his blocked effort found Joe Christou on the edge who took a touch and shot to the keeper’s right. Nolan’s parry found Joel Nouble who was brought down through a combination of keeper and defender. The referee waved away strong shouts for a penalty.

Remi Sutton provided an outlet on the opposite flank and proved that Thurrock were dangerous on both wings. The fullback was shown too much space and drove into the opposition half. His low cross was drilled in to a crowded penalty area and swept home by Jordan Clark.

The hosts got an early goal and deservedly so.

The game was being played largely in midfield as the two teams battled for every ball. There was little goal-mouth action after the 1st goal but Brad Wadkins came close to equalising.

The striker drove into the Thurrock box with options to his left and right. He chose to shoot but dragged his effort well wide and didn’t bother McNamara’s goal. Soon after in the 29th minute Enfield got forward again. Full-back Mickey Parcell almost delivered when his whipped ball sailed across the 6-yard box but couldn’t find another blue and white shirt.

Striker Wadkins had another great chance just minutes later for the visitors. Remi Sutton’s throw-in was intercepted and put Wadkins through on goal. Once again, McNamara stood firm to deny impressively. Enfield were putting a lot of effort into grabbing the equaliser but Thurrock were strong in defence.

The problem with attacking this Thurrock side, is their pace and threat on the break. Ronnie Winn raced through on the left wing and won a corner from the right-back’s challenge. The set piece was floated in perfectly by Christou and was met by a rising Perry Dunn who thumped his header into the bottom corner.

Before the visitors could get going Thurrock had a third. Jordan Clark combined nicely with Ronnie Winn on the left flank with smart one-touch passing. Clark cut the ball back smartly for Joe Christou who finished with a left-footed volley.

The Fleet were clinical, the manner in which they took their chances put this game to bed before the half-time whistle.

HALF TIME; Thurrock 3 - 0 Enfield Town

The second half saw Enfield make a change as Simon Thomas entered the game, replacing Dan Rumens.

The first five minutes of the half were very scrappy. Tackles were firmer and the sheer number of 50/50s seemed to have doubled. Thurrock were keen to keep hold of the ball in an attempt to quash any chance of conceding an early goal, and momentum.

Enfield made another change as Ryan Blake made way for Sam Youngs as the visitors looked to bolster their attack.

In the 60th minute Clark almost doubled his tally and extended the lead. Christou played a clever ball through the defensive line into Ronnie Winn. The striker found Clark on the edge of the box but the effort sailed over the crossbar.

Despite being 3 goals down Enfield showed no signs of giving up. Parcell whipped in a dangerous ball once again which bounced off Wadkins but safely into McNamara’s arms.

Enfield made their 3rd and final change before Thurrock had made one. Tyler Campbell made way for Liam Hope. It looked something of a 4-3-3 formation for the visitors.

Their attacking intent paid off shortly after as Mickey Parcell got forward from right-back to meet a cross-field pass and nod a looping header into the bottom corner.

MICKEY PARCELL (75’)

Enfield got the goal they were looking for and were piling the pressure on to grab another.

They almost got a second through an extraordinary strike. Substitute Sam Youngs received the ball from a give-and-go and bent the ball first time into the top corner. The effort crashed the inside of the post and bounced to safety.

Thurrock reacted with their first and second change of the day as Joel Brown-Bampoe replaced Timothy Ogunrinde and Joel Nouble made way for Ibrahim Kehinde. Mark Stimson changed his wingers to provide fresh legs on the break.

Enfield created another good chance just before the final whistle. A looped ball over the Thurrock back-line found Liam Hope with time and space. From no more than 12-yards out his effort was skewed wide of the post.
