Tower Hamlets sealed a comfortable 4-1 victory over local rivals Redbridge to put them 15 points above basement club Leyton Athletic.

A brace from Luca O’Neil and solo efforts from Ryan Atkinson and Yoan Edoukou sealed the three points for Hamlets at The Oakside Stadium.

O’Neil opened the scoring in the 25th minute of the match and only five minutes later Atkinson found the back of the net from the spot to double his side’s lead.

O’Neil then grabbed his second goal of the match in the 35th minute to make it 3-0 to the visitors.

A minute later Motormen attacker Daniel Gilchrist clawed one back to give them a life line.

In the 64th minute Edoukou drilled a left-footed strike into the bottom right corner to end Redbridge’s hopes of a fight back and seal a 4-1 win.

Manager Micky Wetherall tweeted: “Well today was horrific, worst performance I’ve seen and the players of Redbridge owe the fans a performance.

“Simply not good enough.”

Tower Hamlets will now head to Sawbridgeworth Town as they look to make it back-to-back wins in the Essex Senior League.

Redbridge will look to bounce back when they host strugglers Leyton Athletic this weekend.
