Brentwood 0 East London 3
PATIENCE was the key for East London as a controlled performance at Brent-wood earned them another precious league victory.
The home side sit at the foot of League Division Three SE, but they were no pushovers as East London were restricted to a just a handful of first-half chances, despite having most of the possession.
However, two early goals in the second half sent East London on their way to victory.
First Rory Feldman flicked a loose ball in the D, high into the Brentwood goal, before Dan Hyden set up Adam Willoughby, whose initial strike was deflected past the unfortunate goalkeeper.
East London then began to dominate, with Steve Peck and Dan Tonkin outstanding in defence.
