Sevenoaks 2 Greenwich 1

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

Micky Collins says two more points will ensure Sevenoaks Town retain their  Bostik League South East status next season.


Oaks moved three places up the table to 11th on a good day with results elsewhere also going in their favour.


None of the other teams below won - while Greenwich Borough proved a far different proposition than they did when Oaks won 1-0, there courtesy of Oliver Bennett’s stoppage time own-goal.


Bennett switched clubs shortly afterwards, and returned to the bench after injury on Saturday.


Dan Parkinson and Josh Dorling both scored their first goals for the club in a first home win since beating Faversham 4-1 in mid January.


It was achieved on Club Day, attracting the biggest crowd of the season, helping to raise funds for the nominated - Hospice in the Weald - a bucket collection totalling almost £1000.


Dan Parkinson’s 30-yard direct free-kick put Oaks ahead after 13 minutes, before Teshuane Tyreese Walters made it 1-1 from the spot 10 minutes before half-time, after Jack Miles was adjudged to have brought down Luke Leppard.


Both teams had loud penalty appeals turned down earlier by referee Jamaal Horne - those with a good view suggesting the incident happened outside the box.


Defender Dorling restored Oaks’ lead eight minutes after the break with a far post finish, but Borough were still up for the fight.


Goalkeeper Ben Bridle-Card stopped them with two fine saves, the best tipping Walters’ low free kick onto his right hand post.


He also made one crucial block in the first half, having recovered well after being floored in a collision with Leppard as the pair challenged for the ball on the 18-yard line.


Oaks went close to making it 3-1 - Alec Fiddis was close twice, before new man Lauris Chin fired just wide as the clock ticked down on an always entertaining contest.
