Bees fall to home defeat

By

Waltham Forest take the points at The Ho-Ho Stadium

Basildon United fell to consecutive league defeats for the first time this season, as Waltham Forest recorded a comfortable 3-0 win at The Ho-Ho Stadium.

Waltham Forest came flying out of the blocks and barely three minutes had elapsed when Josh Briacombe-Wiard found plenty of space in the Basildon box to fire home beyond Connor Wheatley.

Bees were still coming to terms with the early setback when things got worse, as Chris Lecointe was given far too much room to add a second with only six minutes played.

The hosts were struggling to get a foothold in the game, Oli Spooner's effort from distance one of few chances requiring the attention of Lamar Joseph-Johnson in the Forest goal.

Jack Adlington saw his free kick dealt with by Joseph-Johnson and from looking like they might find a way back into the game, Bees found themselves three down as Christian Owusu added his name to the scoresheet on 26 minutes.

Into the second half and Marc Harrison looked to change things with the early introduction of Grant Cumming and Jamie Brown, for Darren Phillips and Jack Adlington respectively and Jack Renew was unlucky as his deft flick forced a fine save from the visiting custodian.

Bees continued to look for an opening to give them some hope of getting back into the game, but they found Forest resolute in defence.

Try as they might, Basildon could find no way through and it summed the night up when Spooner saw his effort deflect wide, when he seemed destined to score.

The visitors were happy to see the game out and record a valuable win that will help them in their quest for survival, whilst Bees know that there cannot be many more slip ups if the dream of promotion is to be realised this season.
