Angels slip to home defeat against Enfield Town

Case of after the Lord Mayor's Show as Angels suffer in the second half.

Tonbridge’s season has been encapsulated in the last week when a fine win on Tuesday against Dulwich was followed by a poor home performance and defeat against a Enfield side that is similarly marooned in mid-table.

Enfield went ahead on six minutes when poor marking from a corner allowed Dernell Wynter a header on goal which was parried by Jonny Henly with the rebound falling to Brad Wadkins to stab home.

Tonbridge responded with Joe Turner and Alex Akrofi going close before the latter equalised after 15 minutes. Turner’s corner was headed at goal by Akrofi whose first effort was saved by Joe Wright with the rebound returning to the striker who curled the ball into the net.

The rest of the first half was evenly contested with Nathan Elder having a header cleared from the line whilst Wadkins had the ball in the net but this was ruled out for offside.

After Turner had seen an early second half effort denied by Wright, low to his left, the half was dominated by the visitors with Aaron Greene giving Enfield the lead after 54 minutes when he latched on to a flick on from Wadkins to fire into the bottom corner with Henly stranded.

Four minutes later a superb curling shot into the top corner from 30 yards by substitute Sam Youngs made it 3-1 to the visitors.

Perhaps the biggest cheer of the afternoon for the home side was reserved for the introduction of Tommy Parkinson who has suffered a season long injury. He slotted into the middle of the defence alongside Sonny Miles, who graciously handed over the captain’s arm band to the club skipper.

Enfield continued to make most of the running with Henly saving from Ryan Blake and Youngs whilst Miles had a header comfortably saved by Wright.

Any lingering doubts to the final result were extinguished on 80 minutes when Wadkins fired into the bottom corner to end a disappointing afternoon for the Angels.

Steve McKimm praised his opponents after the game who he thought had played very well, but of his own team he felt that he didn't get the tempo that he had asked for.
