Buckhurst Hill moved up to 6th in the Essex Senior League after a hard thought 3-1 win against Athletic Newham at Myrak Park on Tuesday evening.
Athletic took an early lead, but goals by Nathan Sollosi and a penalty from captain Zuhdu, Hill went into the break 2-1 up.
The second half was a battle and Athletic Newham pressed hard for an equaliser and came close in the 65th minute, but keeper Blockley pulled off a great save with his legs.
Then two minutes after coming off the bench Fehiniti Falola with one of his first touches put the game behind doubt with a fine strike and a precious three points for the stags.
Hill now travel to Clapton on Saturday looking to build on Tuesday night’s performance.
