BRIGHTLINGSEA R 0 TON­BRIDGE AN­GELS 2

The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Tony Os­borne

TON­BRIDGE se­cured all three points with a goal in each half as the Kent ta­ble top­pers over­came a Brightlingsea team still search­ing for their first home win.

The Rs started the brighter and their best early chance fell to Matt Bax­ter who was one-onone with An­gels keeper Henly but was un­able to con­vert..

Re­gent were to rue the missed op­por­tu­ni­ties as the vis­i­tors be­gan to cre­ate chances of their own.

And on 32 min­utes Alex Reid made the most of some in­dif­fer­ent de­fend­ing to make it one nil to Ton­bridge.

The sec­ond half be­gan with a well or­gan­ised An­gels team ask­ing more ques­tions of a Re­gent de­fence that looked vul­ner­a­ble when un­der pres­sure

And R's keeper James Brad­brook was forced into mak­ing some im­por­tant saves to keep Brightlingsea in the game.

Bax­ter had one more great chance to get Re­gent back in the game when the ball fell to him in the vis­i­tors box but his shot was deemed by the of­fi­cials not to have crossed the line.

And An­gels sub­sti­tute Jared Small made it two for Ton­bridge on eighty nine min­utes.

This in­creased the An­gels’ league lead to six points, as their near­est ri­vals all dropped points.

STAR MAN: James Brad­brook (Birghtlingsea Re­gent) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
