Imrul Gazi’s team earn first victory in two months with excellent display at Oakside
Sporting Bengal United moved off the bottom of the Essex Senior League table after coming from behind to win at Redbridge last night.
The victory was the Mile End Stadium outfits first in over two months and takes them onto 12 points from 20 games.
It didn’t seem like being Bengal’s night initially with the Motormen taking an early two-goal lead at Oakside.
Yet Imrul Gazi’s team fought back well before half time thanks to goals from Bobby Redwood and Sergio Garcia.
They came in level at the break and David Vaughan scored the only goal of the second half to take the points in front of a crowd of 45.
It was the perfect response from the east Londoners after a 2-1 home defeat to Haringey & Waltham last weekend.
Bengal boss Gazi said: “It takes character to come from two down and we more than deserved that win.”
Former manager Anwar Uddin offered his congratulations, adding: “Always pleasing to hear Sporting Bengal have won away from home. I’m delighted for Imrul Gazi and great to see Jordan Meikle making an impact.”
Redbridge’s joint-boss Ricky Eaton was gracious following defeat, tweeting: “Great comeback Sporting Bengal, well played.”
