Bari ended eight-match wait for success in all competitions

London Bari boss Chris Davis was delighted to return to winning ways in the Essex Senior League with a 2-1 success at home to Redbridge.

Bari ended an eight-game wait for a win in all competitions thanks to a Richmond Ayoola brace.

And having not won since November 1, Davis was pleased to emerge triumphant from match.

“The win has been a long time coming!” admitted Davis. “We had done well in our previous games, but we were unable to get the win.

“We weren’t as good on Saturday, but to be able to win not playing at our best was good and the boys were buzzing ahead of a couple of weeks off from the league.”

Ayoola was the undoubted star for Bari, scoring twice in the second half to set the hosts on their way to victory.

And Davis was pleased the forward was able to show exactly what he is capable of against Redbridge.

“On his day, Richmond can be a brilliant player as he showed on Saturday and I always knew he had something about him since he joined,” added Davis.

“Sometimes he almost works too hard in that he wants to win every ball and every duel, which some referees don’t like.

“He was unplayable on Saturday and he was fully deserving of his brace.”
