After last week's defeat, Sevenoaks travelled to a busy Culverden Stadium determined to go out and get three points from local rivals Tunbridge Wells.
The first half had Sevenoaks showing some immense flair and ambition, creating numerous chances getting forward, and organisation amongst the defence. Tunbridge Wells defence was unable to deal with pacey wide man Martin Deborah as he managed to deliver some crosses that unfortunately striker Adrian Stone could not get his head to. However after an impressive run from Tom O’Connor, Oaks forward Damian Ramsamy was put through on goal in the eleventh minute, and buried the ball into the net.
The remainder of the first half was Sevenoaks as they kept pushing forward putting pressure on Tunbridge Wells goal yet no further score came from the chances.
A more balanced second half began with Tunbridge Wells controlling possession yet providing no real threat for Oaks goalkeeper Richard Stroud. Both sides made many chances and brought some more excitement to the game. Tunbridge Wells went down to ten men as Tom Bryant picked up a second yellow card. The Sevenoaks midfield kept their shape allowing them to counter attack vigorously. With half hour to go Oaks brought on Austin Gacheru and Steve Camacho who provided more strength going forward. The score remained 1-0 until full time.
This coming Saturday the first team host Seven Acre and Sidcup FC in the Emirates FA Cup.
