Essex Senior League Premier Division leaders Redbridge made light work of a trip to Waltham Forest as they eased to a 4-1 win.

The victory was enough to allow the Motormen to open up a six point lead at the top of the table as they remain front runners for the title.

There was little indication of the gut of goals the second half would offer up after the first 45 minutes ended all square at 0-0.

Redbridge soon took the lead early in the second period when Brian Moses collected a through ball, calmly rounded the keeper and converted.

An error from the Redbridge stopper allowed the home side to draw level soon after, but it didn’t take long for Redbridge’s greater quality to come to the fore as they eventually sealed a commanding win.

Reside Coxi-Sebastfao restored the lead and Moses rose highest to head in his second and give Redbridge breathing space.

They added gloss to the scoreline with the final meaningful kick of the game when Jacob Dingli to seal the Motormen’s 12th win on the spin.

Forest take on Sawbridgeworth Town on Wednesday night ahead of an away day against Burnham Ramblers on Saturday.

Redbridge, meanwhile have a trip to local rivals Wadham Lodge to contend with.

Lodge come into that game on the back of a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Clapton on Saturday.

Brian Simpson provided the only bright spark of a drab afternoon for Lodge as he scored his side’s only goal, but it mattered little as Clapton scored twice in the last 10 minutes to come out on top.

Steven Sardinha did much of the damage for Clapton as he bagged a brace to add to Kai Brichard’s 90th minute effort in the victory.

Elsewhere, West Essex were frustrated by the weather as their match against Takeley was called off.

They sit ninth in the Premier Division despite the lack of action over the weekend and will hope to return to playing on Saturday when they take on Woodford Town at home.

Ilford emerged victorious from a keenly contested game with Hackney Wick as they managed to claim all three points with a hardfought2-1 win.

Jonas Fuadianitu was on target for Wick, but goals from Liam Whipps and Jamie Hart meant Ilford secured a win which ensures they remain seventh in the table.

With a game in hand over Clapton, they will retain hopes of leapfrogging their rivals who are eight points ahead of them in the table.

They take on Basildon United in midweek.

That match is followed by a meeting with Tower Hamlets at home on Saturday.

It promises to be a keenly contested clash with the two sides separated by just one place and two points going into the clash.

Tower Hamlets have also played a game fewer than Ilford, meaning victory is of the upmost importance for both teams.
