Basildon United 1 Southend Manor 2
Ten man Manor came from behind to stun Basildon United at The Hive in their derby match. Luke Hornsley put the Bees ahead but saw the visitors level meaning the teams went in level at the break. Manor were then reduced to ten men before Hamid Zamani netted the visitors winner and gave Adam Peek his first win as Manor boss.
Stansted 1 Sawbridgeworth Town 3
The Robins came from behind to take all three points against Stansted at Hargrave Park. Wis Baltazar put the hosts ahead early on but goals from Lewis Deamer, Billy Skinner and Toby Cleaver saw Sawbo take the spoils here.
West Essex 2 Ilford 1
Hosts West Essex came from behind to defeat ten man Ilford at Mayesbrook Park. The Foxes took the lead on fifteen minutes when a nasty bobble deceived Josh French and his deflected clearance fell into the path of James Peagram who rammed home, but just six minutes later the game turned in favour of the hosts when Hardy found Woodbridge who lobbed the stranded keeper. And the visiting keeper was given his marching orders soon after for dissent following the equaliser. And midway through the second half the hosts netted the winner thanks to a bobbled effort from James Bromley and collect a very welcome three points.
