Wealdstone 4 – 1 Enfield Town
GLEN Little inspired Wealdstone to victory over Enfield Town on Bank Holiday Monday to propel them into the play-off places.
The former Premier League winger came on late in the first half to change the game and entertain the crowd of 602 at The Vale, as the Stones ran out 4-1 winners.
Things got off to a dreadful start for Wealdstone as they fell behind in the sixth minute after Joe O'Brien headed well from a Mark Kirby cross. The home side looked disjointed for the majority of the first half, failing to string any meaningful chances together and were lucky not to concede again.
However, Little came on late in the first half and within eight minutes of coming on, Wealdstone were ahead. Firstly, Chris Moore expertly headed home Tom Pett's cross to equalise, before a corner late in the half led to confusion in the Enfield box, culminating in Stefan Bailey putting the ball into his own net.
The Stones came out on fire in the second half and it was clear that more goals would follow. Scott McGleish (pictured) capped off a wonderful team move, with Little at the heart of it, to fire past his former club.
Wealdstone were rampant and they could and should have scored more. It took until the 86th minute for Tom Pett to complete the scoring, cleaning up after McGleish had smashed the woodwork.
Although the scoreline was convincing, Wealdstone were in debt to a performance of real class from man-of-the-match, Little. He was the catalyst, providing control and much needed composure in the midfield and acted as a link to the strikers.
Wealdstone entertain Cray Wanderers on Saturday and will hope to back up Monday's victory against a team at the wrong half of the table.
