Tower Hamlets hit form again as they pick up four points from the week

Sporting Bengal United played their first Essex Senior League match since January 16 last night (Wednesday), but failed to earn any reward.

Eton Manor made the trip to the Mile End Stadium and after both teams failed to score in the first half, Steven Sardinha found the net early in the second half for the visitors.

And despite creating numerous opportunities, Anwar Uddin’s men couldn’t get back on level terms and suffered a defeat, which leaves them 13th in the table

They were meant to play last Saturday against Waltham Forest as well, but the fixture was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Mile End.

Bengal travel to high-flying Basildon United at the weekend before visiting Stansted next Tuesday for a quarter-final clash in the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy.

Tower Hamlets returned to form this week by ending their four match run without a win and picking up four points out of a possible six.

Ade Abayomi’s talented youngsters hadn’t registered a victory since December 14, but ended that run on Saturday.

Two goals from Jose Alaga and another Omar Rowe strike put them three up against Southend Manor at half time.

Hamlets conceded once after the break, but picked up a vital 3-1 win and on Monday they entertained Hullbridge Sports and were held to a 1-1 draw after O’Neal Rowe scored in the 53rd minute.

“It is a fair result, I appreciate how we stood up to their agression and dealt well with the windy conditions,” said Abayomi.

“But I was mainly disappointed at half time about the referee not carding their players for dissent when it happens to us a lot. Overall this is a good result and one we can learn from in the future.”

Hamlets are without a match this weekend and do not play again now until Febuary 13 when they visit Eton Manor.
