Uddin: I feel very sorry for Burnham player

Sporting Bengal boss Anwar Uddin felt the injury to Burnham’s Joe Paxman took the gloss off his side’s stunning comeback in their FA Vase replay on Tuesday.

The two sides had battled to a 1-1 draw at Mile End Stadium on Saturday and Ramblers went 2-0 up at Leslie Field.

But Sporting hit four goals in the space of 20 minutes before Paxman was stretchered off with what was later discovered to be a broken fibula.

Uddin said: “When I woke up this morning it was the first thing I thought about. It puts everything into perspective, I feel very sorry for the lad.”

Burnham had taken a deserved first half-lead courtesy of two goals from Ashley Hawkins, with his second being a stunning long-range effort that went in off the crossbar.

“Like most games, we started slowly. They scored two goals and deserved their 2-0 advantage. We’re a young side, we had three debutants starting and it showed.” added Uddin.

Carlos Aoldirve sparked the comeback just two minutes into the second period and the visitors netted three more times in eight minutes to turn the game on its head.

Aoldirve’s fantastic finish levelled it up, before Toib Adeyeni and then Javier Rivera netted to complete the turnaround.

Uddin said: “It was a great game, one of which you’ll look back on and say, ‘wow!”.

“I said to the boys at half time, enjoy the challenge, you have nothing to lose. Whatever we do, we do it together, if we’re going to go out, let’s go out with a bang!”

Uddin’s team-talk clearly worked as Aoldirve got his side right back into the contest on 47 minutes, tapping in at the far post.

“The first goal was important, we had a 20-minute spell where we went for it and it paid off,” added Uddin.

“The attitude from the players was great, they didn’t panic.”
