BARKING TAKE THE SPOILS

Barking 2 Great Wakering Rovers 0

Tuesday evening saw Great Wakering Rovers take on Barking at Mayesbrook Park in this rearranged fixture from early February, both teams were looking to bounce back from defeats at the weekend.
This game was always going to be a tight affair with both teams looking nervous at the back, Barking finding the back of the net within minutes of the start however this was ruled out for off side, both teams had half chances but neither could make them count in the first forty five.

After the break it was Rovers who started brightly and probably should have gone in front, Matt Rush and Billy Harris both with good chances to break the deadlock but neither could find the target.
On the 55th minute Rovers were then punished for their missed opportunities, Rovers stopper Lewis Hawes making two superb saves before Barking striker Boakye-Yiadom was on hand to slot the ball in the back of the net, and it was the Barking man who doubled the hosts lead twenty minutes later latching on to a cross from a counter attack to stroke the ball past Hawes.
The hosts saw the rest of the game out, taking all three points and now sit in 13th place, Rovers stay in 16th eight points from the drop zone with nine games to play.
