RED­BRIDGE JC B 3 FINCH­LEY CITY 1

FOOT­BALL SAM Rank com­pared mid­field mae­stro Daniel Bean to N’Golo Kanté af­ter Red­bridge Jewish Care B re­turned to win­ning ways with a com­mand­ing per­for­mance against pro­mo­tion ri­vals Finch­ley City.

Strikes from Dan An­drews, Brad Gayer and Dean Ben Yosef kept Red­bridge on the coat­tails of Di­vi­sion One lead­ers Mac­cabi Lon­don Lions B.

RJC boss Rank said:

“The back five were im­mense and the cen­tral mid­field­ers worked their socks off, es­pe­cially Daniel Bean. He is the N’Galo Kanté of Jewish foot­ball.”

Finch­ley boss Joel Holder de­scribed a title chal­lenge as “look­ing in­creas­ingly un­likely” fol­low­ing the de­feat.

He said: “We had a very de­pleted squad avail­able which ul­ti­mately cost us. “I can­not fault the com­mit­ment and de­sire of the boys. Any team miss­ing the likes of Sade, Gaon and Po­lak is go­ing to suf­fer.

“We still have the cup semi-fi­nal against Red­bridge to look for­ward to so our sea­son is by no means over.”
