Tower Hamlets moved up to sixth place in the Essex Senior League table with Friday night success at Mile End Stadium.

Having lost their last two league matches against Basildon and Ilford, Hamlets gave James Pellin a debut in goal.

And Pellin had to make a decent save to deny Kofi Appiah, after O’Neal Rowe had seen a shot saved by Dan Russell at the other end in a goalless first half.

Luke With his a post on 55 minutes, but Tom MacLeod headed over from a free-kick for West Essex soon after.

Hamlets broke the deadlock on the hour when Curtis Pond fired a low shot past Russell and Lamar Earle sent another chance over.

The visitors saw Dan Christey sent off for a second bookable offence midway through the second half and With had a shot saved by the legs of Russell, before Pond went clear to claim his second goal of the night on 69 minutes.

Rowe had a shot blocked on the line, before substitute Wale Odedoyin broke to lob Russell, but Pellin had to produce late saves from Michael Mignot and Isaac Marfo to preserve his clean sheet.

Hamlets: Pellin, Earle, Watson, Julio, T Odedoyin, Anthony, Pond (Ross 84), Sinclair, With (W Odedoyin 81), Rowe, Wilson (Barnett 71). Unused subs: Ndure, Williams.
