ROSS Wall's second goal of the season was enough to bag Thurrock their second win of the season.

After an incisive second-half display saw Fleet trounce Brentwood Town at the weekend, Mark Stimson's side looked to continue their winning start against Cray Wanderers.

Ahead of the game, Fleet chairman Tommy South publicly congratulated everyone at the club for a great start to the campain.

The team duly delivered in maintaining their 100 per cent record, with the only slight disappointment being that they failed to convert more of the gilt-edged chances they created during a dominant display.

The only changes to the Thurrock side that beat Brentwood on the opening day of the season saw Daniel Okah starting in place of Jack Paxman and Lamar Reynolds in for Callum Ibe.

Wall's goal came 64 minutes into the second half, when he hit a shot which saw the ball move in the air, fooling Darren Behcet in the Cray goal, who could only palm the effort into the side of his net.

But Fleet might have been ahead in the opening minutes of the match, when Reynolds burst into the box, rounded the keeper but somehow failed to convert.

Thurrock welcome Needham Market to Ship Lane on Saturday, seeking a third win and third clean sheet on the trot.
