Barking got back to winning ways with a comfortable success at Burroughs Park.

With only one win in their previous seven league and cup ties, and only one goal in three matches, the Blues took the lead on 19 minutes through long-serving captain Ben O’Brien, who claimed his 53rd goal for the club on his 355th appearance.

And Daniel Cheema doubled the advantage for Justin Gardner’s men just nine minutes later, netting for the third time this season to put them in control.

Barking made sure of the points just past the hour mark when Eusebio Da Silva struck and new signing Tim Brown held firm to record a clean sheet against his former club, who were promoted from the Essex Senior League last season.

A fourth league victory of the current campaign lifted the Blues six places up the table to ninth, with a home match against Felixstowe & Walton United to come next weekend.

Barking: Brown, Tarbard, Peart, O’brien, Bruce, Cossson, Edwards, De Silva (Cohen 77), Russell (Seymour 72), Cheema (Kamara 87), Ogunwamide. Unused subs: Abiola, McQueen.

Attendance: 111.
