Fantastic Win Over Sawbo

Barkingside won 4-1 at home against Sawbridgeworth Town at Cricklefields. The fantastic win saw them move up to 19th in the table.

Mario Gjini, recently signed from Leyton put Alex Goldstone's men ahead on 6 minutes. The forward did well to get in ahead of two defenders to slot home, grabbing his first goal for the club in the process.

'Side's lead was doubled on 34 minutes. Gjini struck a low shot towards goal which Sawbo's keeper saved. The ball fell into the path of Isaac Marfo, who saw his shot on the rebound saved by the keeper. Thankfully the ball looped up for the forward to head home and grab his first goal for the club also.

Frustratingly Sawbo pulled a goal back through their skipper Lewis Deamer on 44 minutes, to put a different reflection on the proceedings going into halftime. It was a much-needed goal for the visitors.

'Side though were in no mood to see this game slip away and wrapped up the game up after the hour-mark. First after a neat passing move, defender Derek O'Halem made it 3-1 on 60 minutes with a crisp finish on 60 minutes before Marfo scored 'Side's fourth with a breathtaking finish on 64 minutes.

Goldstone's Sky Blues now sit just six points from safety and they have given themselves a fighting chance of staying up now after recent results.

'Side are back in action on Monday 28th January, when they host local rivals Redbridge at Cricklefields. Kick-off for that match is at 7:45pm.

'Side: Ryan Karrer, Frederico Hernandez (Jack Brown-Sykes), George Woodward, Derek O'Halem, David Ottley, Edward Lang, Darnell Goather-Braithwaite, Joe Oates (Edward Buchanan), Isaac Marfo, Harry Matthews, Mario Gjini (Shaiquan Maisara)

Subs Not Used: Terry Anim, Charlie Peters-Hey
