Barking cause an upset to knock Westfield off the top of the Isthmian South Central table with a 2-0 victory.

A brace from attacker Junior Dadson sealed the three points for the Blues to earn them a much needed win at Mayesbrook Park to help them climb up to 13th in the table.

Former Cray Wanderers man Dadson opened the scoring in the 33rd minute as he chipped the ball over goalkeeper Craig Ross after a scramble in the box from an Johnny Ashman fell to the attacker.

They took the 1-0 lead into the half-time break and they came up determined to see the match off instead of sit back.
