N Sollosi 27′
Report by Anthony Mercer
Buckhurst Hill returned to winning ways, with a comfortable win over Barking on a wet afternoon at Myrak Park.
Manager Mark Williams made 2 enforced changes with Max Nicholson returning to the side in place of injured Will Halford and Ezekiel Bademosi starting in place of suspended captain Suley Zuhdu.
It was a lively opening at both ends, Nathan Sollosi saw his low shot go past the post. A minute later Barking were reduced to 10 men when debutant Jason Beck received a red card for violent conduct. This caused the away side to make changes and a few minutes later the Stags went in front. A good move, with good build-up play from Josh Banfield, saw Ezekiel Bademosi fire home.
Barking despite being down to 10 men, pushed hard for an equaliser with Timothy Ogunrinde’s effort saved by Blockley.
The home side made it 2 on 27 when some strong work from Liam Foster down the right, found Nathan Sollosi to tap home.
On 36 Barking went close when Ayub Kadiri’s long-range effort was saved by Blockley.
Buckhurst Hill dominated the start of the second half when a Nathan Sollosi free kick struck the post. A minute later Sollosi was again denied by a good save. Sollosi was in the thick of the action on 70 when he cut back from the wing and found Bademosi who smashed home for his second of the afternoon.
Both sides made substitutions, but Buckhurst Hill continued to push With 9 minutes to go Hassan Nalbant powered the ball home from outside the box to complete a good win for Buckhurst Hill. The final action of the game, saw substitute Harry Markatis see his deflected shot hit both posts before being cleared.
The result leaves Buckhurst Hill in 7th.
Buckhurst Hill’s next game sees them make a trip to Stanway Rovers on Tuesday night, before a long trip to Lakenheath next Saturday in the FA Vase.
