National League South

EAST Thurrock United made it consecutive away wins in the National League South with a hugely impressive 3-2 win at much-fancied Poole Town.

A Montel Agyemang double made it three goals in two appearances for the new signing, with Rocks also indebted to a Reece Harris strike.

It was a low-key opening, with East Thurrock struggling to break down a resilient home defence.

Poole defender Jake Smeeton had the first chance of the afternoon, although his strike was relatively comfortably blocked.

Rocks boss John Coventry was forced into an early save when James White was withdrawn, but the home team were to strike on the half hour.

Steve Devlin lined up an effort from long range and buried his shot past Lukas Lidakevicius.

But East Thurrock were to hit back in style before the break.

Reece Harris levelled for the away side three minutes before half-time, as he continued to impress from full-back.

And for the second Saturday in a row, Agyemang got on the scoresheet.

The former Maldon & Tiptree winger hammered home to make it 2-1 in a goal-crazy spell each side of the break.

Adbulai Baggie slid the ball past Lidakevicius with the outside of his boot two minutes after half-time to level the scores.

But Agyemang twisted this way and that to restore the away side's advantage with still more than 30 minutes to play.

A host of substitutions followed but no goals, as Rocks made it seven points from nine at the start of term.
