DUNMOW TOWN 2-1 HACKNEY WICK

Dunmow Town came from behind to claim all 3 points against Hackney Wick.

The Wickers made a bright start and had their first chance 4 minutes in as Mohammed Raza shot wide.

Hackney Wick continued to apply the pressure and came close again as Victory Akam’s effort crashed off the post!

But Victory would get his goal in the 13th minute as he stabbed home following a free kick!

It was almost two just minutes later but Adam Cheniti’s brilliant volley was well saved by Royals keeper Jordan Hudson.

Against the run of play, Dunmow Town equalised as Lewis Nial struck a good volley past Bartz Klimkiewicz.

It continued to be an end-to-end game and Seb Mohammed was unlucky not to restore the Wickers’ lead as his shot curled just wide!

Dunmow Town then came close to going ahead as they struck the bar, but ultimately it was level at half-time.

HT: DUNMOW TOWN 1-1 HACKNEY WICK

The Royals made a quick start to the second half and Bartz was forced to tip an effort around the post, before the resulting corner was headed over.

Hackney Wick were having most of their joy on the counter-attack and Seb was played through but was well denied by Hudson before debutant Suleyman Zahmoul shot straight at the relieved Royals keeper.

It just wasn’t to be Seb’s night as soon after he was again denied by a brilliant save from Hudson.

And the Wickers were left to rue their missed chances as the hosts took the lead on the 75th minute, Stuart Zanone converting from close range.

Dunmow Town continued to push for another goal, heading narrowly over before missing a huge chance as they fired wide from close range.

It really should’ve been 3-1 right at the end but a brilliant save by Bartz kept the scoreline more respectable from Hackney Wick’s point of view.

FT: DUNMOW TOWN 2-1 HACKNEY WICK

The defeat means Hackney Wick sit 13th in the table, having taken 32 points from 24 games.

The Wickers are next in action on Saturday (20th January) as we host NW London- 15:00 kickoff at Witham Town’s Simarco Stadium. NW London are currently 16th in the table, with 29 points from 25 games. The two sides have met twice previously:
13/08/2022- NW London 1-1 Hackney Wick
07/01/2023- Hackney Wick 1-3 NW London

So the Wickers will be looking for their first-ever win against Saturday’s visitors in what promises to be a thrilling game!
