Bostik North: Coggeshall Town 1 Barking 0

Barking suffered a 1-0 defeat at Coggeshall Town in the Bostik North on Saturday after conceding 10 minutes from time.

Sam Bantick scored the only goal of the game to deny the Blues what would have been a fine point on the road.

Justin Gardner and his Barking team could have been forgiven for feeling a sense of déjà vu after going down to Coggeshall by the same scoreline on October 23 in the third round of the Essex Senior Cup.

Chances were at a premium in the first half as the Seed Growers were unable to break down the resilient away side at West Street.

After a goalless opening 45, it seemed like the match would end as a stalemate, but Bantick had other ideas.

The former Heybridge Swifts ace let fly and found the net via the post with 80 on the clock and it was enough to give Coggeshall the points.

Bantick had been the difference between the sides two-and-a-half weeks earlier and it was a similar story this time.

The Blues’ seventh league loss of the campaign sees them 14th in the table after 12 matches with 13 points to their name.
