BILLERICAY Town suffered another 2-0 defeat, this time against Bath City, which sees them sit second from bottom after two games in the National League South, reports Leon Imber. 

It is by no means time to panic for Jamie O’Hara’s side, but they will be desperate to make amends, with the Town boss calling on his players to be better in the final third in his post-match interview.

Also in National League South, Concord Rangers drew 1-1 with St Albans in their first game of the season.

Alex Wall scored from the penalty spot for Danny Scopes’ men, after being brought down for the spot kick.

In the Isthmian Premier Division, Bowers and Pitsea lost 2-1 to Worthing.

Billy Knott continued his great goalscoring form, but his team could do nothing to stop Mo Diallo scoring a scrappy goal in the 86th minute, to give Rob Small’s Bowers an unfamiliar taste of defeat.

Meanwhile, East Thurrock United picked up a positive result against Merstham, drawing 2-2.

Kenny Aileru and Luke Illsley were on target for Rocks, as they still search for their first win of the season.

Basildon United also drew against AFC Sudbury but may feel aggrieved after being two goals up in the game.

Tyrone Baker and Sonny Dutton gave Basildon an early lead, but defensive frailties cancelled out the efforts.

Elsewhere in the Isthmian North Division, Canvey Island picked up a point against Brentwood Town, being held to a 1-1 draw.

Dan Humphreys headed in from Evans Kouassi’s cross to give Mark Bentley’s men the lead but could not stop Wilberforce Ocran’s close range effort midway through the second half.

More action in the same division came in the form of Hullbridge Sports losing 2-1 to Tilbury, while Great Wakering were victorious against Witham Town.

Hullbridge have now suffered two consecutive defeats, after previously sitting at the top of the table.
