Clapton saw Dylan Ebengo dismissed and manager Jon Fowell sent from the dugout on a disappointing day at Station Road.

Tons had Jonny Ashman back in their side, as well as a pair of debutants, and the scoreline remained blank until just before half time when Stuart Zanone headed home a free-kick at the far post.

Mitchell Das doubled the home side’s lead with a simple finish from close range after a break and there was no way back for Tons in front of a crowd of 145.

They return to the Old Spotted Dog to host Enfield on Tuesday.

Clapton: Boateng, Vigo, Awoderu, Flavin, Egbejale, Ebengo, Spencer, Ashman, Nalbani, Greenslade, Cobblah. Subs: Odek, Loblack, Morris, Miller, Lanbe, Reed.

*Hackney Wick let a lead slip to fall to a 2-1 defeat against Stansted.

The home side got their noses in front midway through the first half, but the Airportmen were back on level terms just seven minutes later through debutant Jayden Hocking-Rising.

And an own goal with only eight minutes remaining left Hackney empty-handed ahead of Monday’s trip to face Barkingside at Cricklefield Stadium.
