Morgan Jenden and Fred Hill goals give Redhill big three points.


A first half screamer by Morgan Jenden set the Lobsters on their way to a 2-1 win at Gander Green Lane, and took the Reds out of the bottom three.

Barry Wilde had to make a late change with James Fray injured, Travers replaced him at right back. Jon Trotter was still unavailable so Mo Diakite once again partnered Jordan Martin at the back. Eddy Mbango started through the middle as the Lobsters looked to be more of a goal threat in attack.

Redhill made a bright start to the encounter and looked confident after Saturday's FA Vase victory over Bagshot. Some early half chances went begging for the Lobsters but they'd started the better of the two sides. SCR looked to get themselves into the game and created a couple of chances of their own, but couldn't capitalize.

The game was broken open on the half hour mark, and what a goal. Morgan Jenden picked the ball up midway inside the home sides half, advancing towards the SCR area and unleashing an unstoppable strike that nestled into the top corner to give the Lobsters the lead.

The home side weren't behind for long though as the Reds switched off, and Page was on hand to finish well past Minchin to send the sides in level at the break.

The impressive Eddy Mbango went close to giving Redhill the lead again early in the second half, his effort smashed off the bar. But the Reds did retake the lead on 56 minutes, a good cross from the right found Fred Hill at the back post and the winger headed home to continue his good goalscoring form since rejoining the club.

The Lobsters were playing well and working hard to stop Rovers having any clear cut chances, going forward the Reds were still causing the home team problems as an Eddy Mbango cross was nearly turned home. Rovers first clear chance of the second period came on 74 minutes but the shot went over.

Sub Jordan Harrison nearly gave Redhill breathing space when his effort was saved, Evan Lopes couldn't quite find the net with his follow up. Harrison again went close with 10 minutes to play, his shot was well saved as the Reds continued to look for a third. But two was enough for the visitors as the full time whistle sounded and the Reds picked up their second impressive away win of the season.
