After recent good performances Barking could not keep up with Canvey Island who ran out 3-1 winners and slumped to their first league loss of 2019 and the first at Mayesbrook Park since December 1st. We included for the first time on the bench recent signing Kahr Sabba and from our Under 23's midfielder Jack Roult.

The visitors forced keeper Brown in to his first good save after four minutes as he palmed a volley from Marlon Agywaka wide but could do nothing after 22 as Adam Vyse found space to turn and shoot into the bottom left corner. Kemo Darboe should have responded but he was denied by a fine save by Canvey’s Harry Palmer and Barking were punished as Vyse turned provider for Merrifield who nodded home a pinpoint cross. Darboe’s header hit the Canvey but the flag was already up for offside. The Blues made a double substitution on 36 minutes with Tobi Joseph and debutant Sahr Kabba replacing Ross Elsom and Kemo Darboe, but could have been 3-0 down before half time but had Ola Ogunwamide to thank as he headed an attempt off the line.

The second half continued in the same vein and Canvey did get their third as Martin Tuohy turned Jack McQueen and finished off a Canvey counterattack. Tuohy nearly had a second as the ball smacked off the post but he could not react in time to direct the ball goalwards. Barking did get one back on 88 as Tobi Joseph saw his powerful effort hit the top corner and they nearly had a second with the last kick of the game but Kabba saw his penalty saved by the Canvey goalkeeper Palmer - the second time this season Palmer has saved a Barking penalty.

Next Saturday we travel to the reesurgent WItham Town and hope to end a winless league run which stretches back to May 2000.
