Sporting Bengal United are now winless in five Essex Senior League matches after falling to a 2-0 to league leaders Stansted.

Goals from Callum Ibe and James Peagram sealed the three points for the Airportmen at the Mile End Stadium.

In the 25th minute the visitors pulled off a good move before prolific goal scorer Ibe turned an effort into the net from close range to make it 1-0.

They headed into the break with the lead despite both side’s creating a few chances in the later stages of the first-half.

Stansted manager Paul Pittuck said: “Sporting Bengal away is always a tough game especially midweek, windy conditions made it even harder than usual but fourth clean sheet on the bounce and we created plenty of chances, so good win tonight.”
