Tower Hamlets joint-manager Ade Abayomi delighted with his side’s attitude in their 5-0 victory against league rivals Waltham Forest.

Abayomi’s men made it two wins in a row after three first-half goals from O’Neal Rowe, John Watson and Luke With and two second-half strikes from Curtis Pond and substitute Harry Wright sealed the three points at Mile End Stadium.

“5-0, clean sheet, great attitude from the beginning to the end, I can’t ask for more,” he admitted.

“The boys really played well and I think they started to show what they can do at this level.

“They’ve started to gel together so hopefully they’ll be more of that.”

The manager believes his side showed character and stuck to the game plan perfectly and were rewarded for that.

“Everybody was up for the game from the beginning, we didn’t give them no room to breathe and no room to move the ball,” Abayomi said.

“The attitude on and off the ball was spot on and the goals were from all angles of the park, so that is the confident the boys needed as we started a little bit slow, but now the confidence is high and we can’t wait for the next game.”

“All of the management loved the performance and are hoping for many more to come.

“You don’t often get the chance to have a good word with the boys and then see them carry it out according to the letter, as a manager you can’t be more happier than that.”

Luke With caught the Forest keeper Sam Haywood off guard in the thirty fifth minute as he brought down the ball and drilled a shot from the half way line, Haywood managed to get a finger to the ball but it trickled over the line for his side’s third goal and Abayomi had nothing but praise for the striker.

“Fantastic goal, I was taunting him earlier saying I had a dream of him scoring a goal, but I wasn’t expecting that cracker.

“It was a great goal, he saw the keeper off the line, he said he heard his voice so I just took my chance.”

Tower Hamlets will now turn their attention to FA Vase action as they face Hackney Wick at Mile End Stadium on Friday evening.

“We’ve got a game Friday which I know they’re all ready for, everybody is eager to play the competition is tight, so happy days as I’ve seen it this good for a long time.”
