Havering’s men made it three wins in a row in East Premier B with a 3-2 success over West Herts seconds at Campion.

Chris Dunn returned after illness, with captain Harry Jenkins and Alex Lee unavailable.

And Havering controlled the early play, with Liam Appleyard’s deflected short corner just missing the target.

The hosts opened the scoring when Harry Andrews fired a reverse-stick drive in from the left and Appleyard deflected home, but Herts hit back against the run of play.

The visitors took the lead with a far post tap-in before half time and went close twice more after the restart.

Havering found their rhythm once again, though, and levelled when Dunn beat two defenders and set up Stuart Garnell to flick into the far corner.

And they netted a winner with 10 minutes remaining when Andrews pulled the ball back from the baseline for Paul Dover to fire a low shot home.

Garnell wasted a good chance to make it 4-2 when clean through and Havering had Lee Bennett to thank for a crucial save late on ahead of their trip to Cambridge City seconds this weekend.

The seconds drew 2-2 with high-flying Brentwood in their derby.

Adam Willet finished off a slick short corner routine, before James Hosier deflected into the roof of his own net.

Youngsters Zak Nerukar, Liam Keeling and Andy Meehan shone for Havering, but Brentwood went 2-1 up from a swift counter.

Havering earned a point when Keeling finished off a slick move and they went close to a winner in the final minutes when Willet missed from close range.

Greg Mawdsley also had a strong appeal for a penalty flick turned down as it ended all square.

The third tame came away empty-handed from their clash with Old Loughts Loppers at Luxborough Lane.

Havering had the better chances early on before falling behind when a long ball was miscontrolled in the D, but still deflected past the hapless Graham Walker.

Richard Cast levelled with a fine short corner strike before the interval and Havering had more chances to get their noses in front after the restart.

And they were made to pay for those missed chances as Loughts regained the lead from the spot and held on for a 2-1 win.
