Barking broke their four game winless run with a 3-1 victory against Tilbury to push themselves back into the play-off places in the Bostik North.

An early goal from Billy Jones and a brace from Abs Seymour inspired the Blues to three points against The Dockers at Chadfields last night.

Justin Gardner’s men moved up to sixth in the table with the win and will be hoping they can get on another winning run.

Jones broke the deadlock after just 11 minutes when he went one on one with Clarke Bogard before going round the keeper and slotting the ball home to make it 1-0.

They managed to hold on and take the lead into the half-time break.

Joe Keith’s men got off to a stronger start in the second-half and in the 64th minute were rewarded when Toby Aromolaran brought it back to level terms with an equaliser.

The attacker was picked out making a run in behind the Barking back line and managed to push the ball into the bottom left corner and past Emmanuel Olajide.

Ten minutes later the Blues regained the lead thanks to a Seymour free-kick that found its way through the wall to make it 2-1.

Seymour broke away in the 77th minute and managed to lob Bogard from the edge of the box to make it 3-1 and seal the victory for his men.
