TILBURY continued their impressive form by claiming a late 1-0 win over Dereham Town on Saturday.

Eljay Worrell netted with just five minutes remaining to allow Marc Harrison’s side to clinch all three points at Chadfields.

Harrison made two changes to his starting line-up, with Joe Osaghae featuring between the sticks after joining on loan from Championship side Charlton Athletic and captain John Easterford returning to the side.

The Dockers also welcomed Lewis Smith back into the squad, with the winger being named on the bench after returning from a long-term injury.

Tilbury created the better opportunities in the opening 25 minutes of the Isthmian North encounter, with Dereham goalkeeper Elliot Pride tipping a David Knight strike over the crossbar before the frontman volleyed over minutes later.

A Rhys Logan free-kick caused confusion in the home defence, but the Dockers were thankful not to concede.

Adam Hipperson then saw his long range effort go over the crossbar before the break.

Soon after the resumption, Oli Spooner blazed over as the visitors failed to clear their lines.

Goalmouth action continued to be at a premium and Ola Ogunwamide sent a strike wide.

The introduction of Worrell as a substitute proved to be critical as the left-back headed a Knight free-kick home to seal victory.
