Tilbury 3, Great Wakering Rovers 3

DOCKERS' Ola Ogunwamide delivered two late goals to maintain Tilbury's table-topping start to the season and thwart visitors Great Wakering Rovers' bid to usurp them at the top of the Isthmian North table.

With 36 minutes remaining a pivotal moment came in a topsy turvy match when Connor Martin saw red for Wakering at Chadfields and Tilbury saw the opportunity to claw their way back into match they were trailing 3-1.

Strikes by Ogunwamide on 82 and 84 minutes gave Tilbury a draw that sees their lead at the top of the table extended to two points.

Lewis Smith had put the Dockers in front on 17 minutes but Rovers were level at half time through Billy Harris's 44th minute goal. Tilbury’s Thomas Barton put through his own goal on 74 minutes and it seemed Rovers were home and hosed but Ogunwamide had other ideas after Martin's dismissal.
