Soham Town Rangers 0 Tilbury 1 (Att 130)

Tilbury returned to winning ways with a late late winner in Cambridgeshire on a cold night. 

After the disappointment of Saturday's defeat to Basildon, manager Marc Harrison made a single change, with Lee Burns replacing Sam Carter. Unfortunately Burns evening lasted just 3 minutes due to injury. 

The home side had a succession of corners early on, before striker David Knight had a shot at goal. Tilbury's best chance of the half fell on 19 when Calvin Ekpiteta crossed for Brian Moses, whose header went a whisker wide. A minute late Ekpiteta was brought down in the box, but no penalty was awarded. On 25 Soham were awarded a penalty for a foul and Sam Mulready saw his spot kick go well wide.

On 30 Ola Ogunwamide cut inside and unleashed a shot that crashed the bar. Before the break, both sides had good chances, Soham's Mulready saw an unchallenged header deflected for a corner, before Spooner's lovely through ball to Knight, who rounded the keeper, before Conway cleared off the line. On half time, Brian Moses had the ball in the net, but after a few seconds, the goal was ruled out for offside. 

Tilbury started to dominate the game and Oli Spooner saw his header go wide, before a 73rd minute free kick, that hit the bar by Ryan Auger. On 84, the busy David Knight got himself in the box and his effort looked goal-bound, only to come off the inside of the post and away to safety. 

It was a strong finish from Tilbury and they were rewarded in the 3rd minute of injury time, when Knight's corner, fell to Ogunwamide inside the box who rifled home through a number of bodies in to the goal. 
Soham had one further push, deep in to injury time, before Tilbury were pleased to hear the final whistle. 

The result see's Tilbury move up to 9th in the league, with a game in hand.  

Tilbury return to action on Saturday, when they welcome Felixstowe and Walton in the league.         

Team: Aldridge, Boswell, Burgess, Mallett, Easterford, Burns (Ekpiteta 3, Worrell 80), Ogunwamide, Barton, Moses, Spooner, and Knight
