Sporting Bengal 2 Burnham 1

In-form Sporting Bengal made it three Essex Senior League wins in a row with success over lowly Burnham at Mile End Stadium.

Imrul Gazi’s men had upset Redbridge and Southend Manor in their previous two outings, having held high-flying FC Romania to a draw, but were made to work hard by Ramblers.

More goals from Shiblu Miah on 32 minutes and Oscar Almeida Mendes just past the hour – after both had netted in the 2-1 win at Manor a week earlier – proved enough to seal the points.

But Gazi was honest in his appraisal of the outcome, taking to social media site Twitter to post: “Not our best performance, but we got the win we wanted. Team is going in the right direction & we hav lots of options #teamsporting.”

Their latest win allowed Sporting to open up a nine-point gap on the bottom three, with seven matches still to play this season.

They are due to host fourth-placed Takeley next weekend in their last home fixture of the campaign and visit Barkingside two days later, before trips to Ilford, Haringey & Waltham, West Essex, Barking and Hullbridge during April.

Neighbours Tower Hamlets had suffered a 2-1 home defeat against Ilford on Friday night, in front of a three-figure crowd at Mile End, and are due to visit the Foxes in a quick return meeting on Wednesday.

Sporting Bengal: Tarawali, J Adjei, L Adjei, Da Silva, Kobia, Miah, Mendes, Murray-Bruce, Tandon. Subs: Noor, Samad, Vaughan, Wright.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
