Barking 2 Greenhouse 0

Barking bounced back from their midweek defeat at Tower Hamlets to maintain their one-point lead at the top of the table with a routine win over lowly Greenhouse.

But the visitors held out for a good hour until Joe Killingback broke the deadlock with a deflected free-kick, his eighth goal of the season for Blues.

Wale Odedoyin sealed the points with a second on 73 minutes, sending a great volley on the turn into the net to keep Barking ahead of Haringey Borough, who ran out 7-1 winners over Hullbridge.

Clapton 0 Enfield 1

A whopping crowd of 432 saw Enfield come out on top against Tons at the Old Spotted Dog.

A late strike from Lewis Page proved the difference between the two sides, with the impressive attendance higher than no fewer than 10 Ryman Premier Division fixtures.

*London Bari saw their clash at Waltham Forest abandoned after Ade Adetunji suffered a broken leg.

Jose Agua had given Forest the lead on 12 minutes, but Junior Decker and Andy Greenslade netted two minutes apart to put Bari 2-1 up.

Solomon Ofori’s penalty squared matters seven minutes before the break, but Adetunji put Bari 3-2 ahead on the hour, before his unfortunate injury saw the match called off 18 minutes from time.

Ilford 0 Stansted 2

Below-par Ilford were well beaten by the Airportmen at Cricklefield Stadium.

Oliver Fortune gave the visitors the lead on 13 minutes and Billy Turner made sure of the points with a second 15 minutes from time.

Southend Manor 3 Newham 3

A last-minute Manor penalty denied Newham all three points in an entertaining contest at Southchurch Park.

Charlie Quinn fired the hosts ahead in the first minute and doubled the lead on 53 minutes.

An own goal gave Newham hope on 71 minutes and Vlad Sighiartau squared matters two minutes later.

Mike Nduakwlu then put Newham 3-2 up with seven minutes remaining, but Manor were awarded a spot-kick in the last minute of normal time and Aaron Baldwin kept his composure to convert from 12 yards.

Tower Hamlets 1 Sporting Bengal 1

Honours finished even in the Mile End Stadium derby, in front of a crowd of 86, after a pair of own goals.

Bengal, buoyed by their stunning 5-1 win at Stansted a week earlier, took the lead three minutes into the second half when Jerome Paul turned the ball into his own net.

But Hamlets, coming off the back of a 3-0 win over leaders Barking, drew level nine minutes from time when Liton Zaman netted the second own goal of the day.

Fixtures, Tuesday: Hullbridge v Sporting Bengal; Newham v Bowers.

Wednesday: Greenhouse v London Bari.

Thursday: Hullbridge v Clapton.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
