Sporting Bengal United manager Imrul Gazi is buzzing with his side’s 2-1 victory against Ilford.

A brace from Eaia Embalo sealed the three points and help push Bengal up the table and further away from the relegation zone at Cricklefield Stadium.

Imrul Gazi’s men are now five points off the bottom four and will be hoping to carry that momentum forward ahead of a big week of fixtures.

“We’re buzzing with that result, my target for our next two games which was Ilford and Burnham was four points and I would have been really pleased to get anything away from Ilford.

“They have a great management team and a good squad so from our perspective it was great.

“I went there with a good squad, I was quietly confident and I was over the moon with the win.”

The boss was delighted with his side’s performance and believes they throughly deserved to get the three points.

“We took a 2-0 lead and it was very much deserved, I think even Allan Fenn and Billy Cove said we were the better team and had the better chances.

“At the end of the day we got what we deserved which is not usually the case with Sporting Bengal we usually are the side that plays well, don’t take our opportunities and then concede silly goals.

“It was good that we got the three points and it gives us some breathing space but we now have two huge games coming up.”

Gazi also praised striker Embalo but revealed he is often unavailable for selection.

“He’s not someone that is available all the time due to work commitments and because he’s got a little baby.

“He’s just moved, he used to live in Seven Sisters, but now he’s moved to Romford which is more convenient for him.

“He doesn’t work and he is the one that looks after the kid.

“If I had Embalo every week I wouldn’t be in the predicament I am now.”
