Essex Senior League: Clapton 0 Basildon United 1

Clapton fell to a third consecutive defeat as they slipped to a 1-0 loss against high-flyers Basildon United.

A late header from Darren Phillips gave The Bees all three points against The Tons at The Old Spotted Dog.

Marcus Harrison’s men have closed the gap on the leaders Redbridge to two points, while Clapton moved down to sixth spot, after already playing half of their league fixtures this season.

Jonny Fowell’s men also lost another goalkeeper to injury during the game, bringing the total up to three in their last three games.

Fowell and his assistant Wayne Seal will have to get recruiting again as they look to solve their current goalkeeping crisis.

The Tons will now look to bounce back to winning ways as they host rivals Ilford at the Old Spotted Dog on Saturday, before also welcoming Barkingside on Tuesday evening.
