DESPITE a disjointed performance on Saturday, Dunmow cruised to victory.

Dunmow men started confidently spreading the ball throughout the midfield and they took a fifth minute lead when Rimmel broke from midfield and fired a fierce shot at goal only to be foiled by the Redbridge keeper who could only parry the ball to Angus Burns who slide the ball home.

Within seconds of the restart Dunmow doubled their lead, when Martin Sully ran down the right wing and pulled the ball back to Rob Marshall to side step his marker before slotting the ball just inside the right hand post.

The remainder of the half went by with very few chances with both defences standing firm.

Ten minutes into the second half Dunmow killed of the game when Mackenzie added a third, firing a reverse stick shot low to the keeper's right.

Dunmow were forced to play a short spell with only 10 men when a wild 16 yard hit struck Chris Taylor on the knee.

This allowed Redbridge to mount a rare attack and would have made it 3-1 if it was not for the athleticism of young keeper Ben Sully.

With Taylor recovered, Dunmow went on the offensive again and when Taylor spread the ball to Marshall on the left wing. He beat a couple of players before taking the ball away from the keeper, but when a composed finish was required he scuffed his shot and the ball was cleared.

The result leaves Dunmow six points off top spot and will be looking to reduce the gap further when the entertain fellow promotion hopefuls Southend II at Dunmow Leisure Centre on Saturday.
