Millers were a few players short and we had our assistant manager and goalkeeping coach on the bench ahead of the game against Thamesmead. Mathias Bakare had to fill in at right back and Paul Preston was moved to left back.
James Marrable was easily again a contender for man of the match, when Thamesmead did get in behind, he was quick as lightning coming off his line and saved well time and time again from Gordon-Young and Thompson in quick succession in the first half.
The Millers then took the lead through Kyle Asante, Theo Ola won the ball and moved it onto Kyle Asante who broke through the offside trap and curled it neatly into the bottom corner. Thamesmead 0-1 Aveley FC.
Thamesmead really should've equalised with another simple chance, Gordon-Young shot was blocked away just wide of the post for a corner. The corner came out to the edge of the area but Carvell through his body in the way of the shot, it went over to Duncan who crossed the ball into the back post and substitute Benner had a free header, two yards out and he somehow headed wide of the target.
Gordon Young then swung a punch towards one of the Millers, and was sent off after the whistle went. An incident which really clouded what was a really good and entertaining game.
Full Time- Thamesmead 0-1 Aveley FC.
