For the first tine this season, Bridges recorded back to back wins, and despite a flurry of second half activity by Redhill, they also managed to keep a welcome clean sheet.

It took just nine minutes for Bridges to get in front with a lovely team move. Jamie Crellin won an important ball and fed Ben Godfrey. He in turn threaded a delightful ball through to Lee Carney, who played a one-two with Allan Tait and headed home.

After fifteen minutes the scoreline had doubled with Godfrey and Tait both being involved again before Tony Garrod finished with a sumptuous volley from just outside the box.

Bridges continued to dominate and Tait hit just over from Abu Touray’s low cross, whilst Redhill keeper Adam Faith made a good save to keep out Matt Whitehead’s drive.

Then two minutes before half time Godfrey’s low cross was turned away by defender Rob Hill for what he thought was a corner. But the Assistant Referee flagged that Hill had pushed the ball away with his hand, and the rampant Godfrey drilled home the resulting penalty.

Redhill were not happy with this decision and came out fir the second half looking more determined. But Kieron Thorp only had to make one save of note when he pushed away a good strike by Qudus Bolagi.

Bridges thought they had a fourth just after the hour when Sam MacVicar headed home powerfully as he met Whitehead’s free kick, but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Any lingering hopes that Redhill had of getting back into contention were destroyed after 77 minutes when TOURAY’s drive deflected in off a defender, and four minutes later Garrod dispossessed Faith to complete the nap hand.
