Sporting Bengal United continued their miserable start to 2018 as they still search for their first victory of the new year after falling to a sixth straight defeat with a 2-0 defeat to Great Wakering Rovers.

Two second-half goals from the Rovers sealed them the three points and saw Bengal fall into a relegation scrap as they moved down to 17th in the Essex Senior League.

Imrul Gazi’s men managed to hold off the promotion hopefuls for the first forty five minutes but in the 60th minute they broke the deadlock when Nathan Dewberry found the net.

Chris Bryan then doubled the lead for the visitors as he slotted home a cross from substitute Jay Nash in the 80th minute to make it 0-2.

Bengal will now host Waltham Forest on Wednesday night (7.45pm) before also welcoming mid-table Southend Manor to Mile End Stadium on Saturday (3pm).

Bengal have eleven games left to rescue their season.
