Sporting Bengal 2 Burnham 1
In-form Sporting Bengal made it three Essex Senior League wins in a row with success over lowly Burnham at Mile End Stadium.
Imrul Gazi’s men had upset Redbridge and Southend Manor in their previous two outings, having held high-flying FC Romania to a draw, but were made to work hard by Ramblers.
More goals from Shiblu Miah on 32 minutes and Oscar Almeida Mendes just past the hour – after both had netted in the 2-1 win at Manor a week earlier – proved enough to seal the points.
But Gazi was honest in his appraisal of the outcome, taking to social media site Twitter to post: “Not our best performance, but we got the win we wanted. Team is going in the right direction & we hav lots of options #teamsporting.”
