Brentwood Town 0



Barking secured their first win against Brentwood since their return to the Bostik League with a convincing 3-0 win in a feisty encounter. The home side included for the first time since August 27th (against the same opponents) Kemo Darboe and Brentwood included a couple of former Blues in their ranks: Albert Levett and Ernest Okoh.

On 16 minutes Kemo Darboe opened the scoring after his long spell out as he sidefooted the ball home after Jordan Peart had bought down a cross by Jack Edwards. Tim Brown made a great close range save from a header after 23 minutes and it was his drop kick after 34 minutes that initiated a counter attack which saw Darelle Russell slide the ball across goal for captain Abs Seymour to put the ball back across the Brentwood keeper Rob Budd and double our lead. Just minutes before half time an off the ball fracas saw Joe Bruce for Barking and Charlee Hughes for Brentwood sent off.

Former Blue Ernest Okoh should have halved the lead shortly after half time but his effort was wide. Brentwood thought they had their goal after 78 minutes but Tony Stokes somehow headed wide unmarked. Brentwood were punished moments later as Abs Seymour played a short corner to sub Olajuwon Ogunwamide whose unchecked run left hime free to powered the ball into the top corner of the net for his third of the season and Barking's third of the game. For the final nine minutes Budd pulled off a string saves to deny the home side further and keep the winning margin to three.

Following the Christmas festivities we make the short trip up the A13 to Parkside to take on third placed Aveley in our final game of 2018 in no doubt what will be a difficult encounter.
