Dockers are well beaten by Bar – again!

Chris Doyle - at the double for Ware.

Potters Bar 4, Tilbury 0
FOR the second time this season Tilbury suffered a 4-0 Bostik North defeat at the hands of Bar in a match marred by eight cautions, evenly distributed among the two sides who were both critical of the match officials.
The home side started well with Ben Ward-Cochrane causing Tilbury a number of problems. He had two good efforts in the opening minutes, denied each time by fine saves from Clarke Bogard.
They grabbed the lead after eight minutes a corner from the right found defender Chris Doyle whose shot went in thanks to a deflection.
Tilbury’s first effort cameon 15 minutes when Harry Norman hit over from distance. Adam Vyse then saw a good effort well saved by Berkley Laurencin.
The Dockers grew into the game and on 38 minutes should have scored when Toby Aromolaran’s shot fell for Tom Anderson, but Laurencin rected quickly to deny him.
On the stroke of half time Potters Bar were awarded a penalty when Joe Turpin was adjudged to have committed a foul in the area. Initially the referee waved away home appeals and the assistant referee took his raised flag down, but then bizarrely the refree changed his mind. Michael Murray stepped up to score.
Potters Bar bossed the second period.
On 52 minutes Dias Fernandes struck the post and Ben Ward-Cochrane followed up but hit wide.
The third goal eventually arrived on 77 minutes when Murray hit a free kick that struck the bar and Sean Grace follow up to head into an empty net.
On 83 minutes the goal of the game came from Doyle when he rifled home passed a diving Bogard.
After the game disappointed Tilbury manager Joe Keith said: “We lacked leadership and were well beaten by a very well organised and experienced team.”
