Redbridge return to winning ways

Redbridge came into the match following a draw with Camden, feeling there were many wrongs to right.

On a beautiful December morning and back to the home comforts of Fairlop, Redbridge started on the front foot for once and were dominating proceedings.

The first 15 minutes were marked by a number of half-chances, but they couldn’t test the goalkeeper. Sam Sollosi had been a fitness worry the whole week and hadn’t fully recovered from illness. There was a short discussion on the bench whether to bring him off but this was dispelled minutes later when he beat a player and sent a low shot into the back of the net. This settled Redbridge down and a few minutes before half-time, Steve Summers got on to the score sheet with a smart turn and shot.

Half-time came and a few changes had to be made. Steve Summers had to come off as did Jordan Sapler with a hamstring pull so on came Adam Goldman wide right, and Danny Hakimi at centre-back. Both performed really well in the second half but the third goal would be critical and it came with a low shot that possibly the goalkeeper will be disappointed with and Redbridge were now starting to play their football.

Goal number four was the standout goal with Ben Sollosi picking the ball up centre of goal about 18 yards out. He looked up and picked his spot with a curled finish to the keepers left that was perfectly placed. The gloss was then added with a second for the predator, Daniel Garfinkle.

Manager Jon Jacobs said: “5-0 and a clean sheet marks a great way to end the year and take us into 2016 where we open up with two massive cup ties against Hendon and Harmen and hopefully kick on from second place in the league.”
