Harlow Town 0, Tilbury 2 THE Dockers sailed into the top half of the table courtesy of victory at their Essex neighbours.

Harlow are rock bottom and fell behind here on nine minutes when Chris Taylor flicked a free-kick from ex-West Ham and Southend United midfielder Lee Hodges inside the near post.

Ben Bradbury came close to making it 2-0 10 minutes before the break with an effort that struck the post.

But Dockers were not to be denied and got a second in controversial circumstances 10 minutes into the second-half.

Danny Chapman was judged to have fouled former Harlow player Christian Wheeler in the penalty area and Bradley Barnes fired home the spot-kick.

Tilbury are due to finally play last season’s much-delay-ed East Anglian Cup final against Ridgeons Eastern Counties League Halstead Town at Chadfields on Thurs-day night.
