Ramblers traveled to Basildon United on Tuesday. The Ramblers had a couple of late withdrawals from their defence from injuries sustained on Saturday. The initial 15 minutes of the first half passed without incident to either goal,
then following a defensive misjudgment the opposition collected the ball just outside the area and slipped in the centre forward who from an acute angle, scored in the far corner.
The second goal came from a right wing cross and an unmarked midfield player volleying in from 8 meters.
Burnham then produced their best phase of play and were unfortunate not to score before half time.
HT 2-0. The next goal was crucial to the result of the game and unfortunately another error gifted Basildon a goal within 10 minutes of the restart and from that point heads dropped and Basildon added another 4 further goals.
A very disappointing result as the team were outfought and out thought by a quicker more determined side. We go again on Saturday at home to London Bari where it is hoped we can take our first points of the season.
