Barking picked up their first league victory of the season as they sealed a 2-1 win over FC Romania.

Goals from captain Abs Seymour and substitute Dixon Michael sealed the three points for Justin Gardner's men despite the hosts Dumitru Gritcan opening the scoring at Theobalds Lane.

Gritcan found the net in the 16th minute of play to give FC Romania a 1-0 lead but that didn't last long as eight minutes later as Seymour fired home a free-kick on the edge of the box.

Substitute Dixon Michael nodded home the winner for the Blues in the 70th minute from a corner to give them their first win and move them out of the bottom two in the Isthmian South Central.
