GREAT Wakering Rovers brought their seven match winless run to an end as they recorded an impressive 3-0 victory over Tilbury.

Firmin Ngandu, Shomari Barnwell and Billy Johnson grabbed the vital goals to allow Wakering to claw themselves further clear of the Isthmian North drop zone.

And interim player-manager Steve Butterworth was pleased to see his side return to winning ways at Chadfields.

"We had been threatening to claim a big win in recent weeks, but it was just a matter of it all coming together," said Butterworth.

"We hadn't been taking our chances in the last few games and we should have been one or two goals up at half-time.

"We didn't take our chances and we didn't play well for the first 10 or 15 minutes of the second half, so you start to think it's all happening again.

"But once the first goal went in we opened them up three or four times and I don't think anyone could argue that we didn't deserve to win."

Ngandu broke the deadlock from the penalty spot with 20 minutes to play.

Barnwell came off the bench to double Wakering's advantage before Johnson marked his recent return from injury with a goal in the dying moments to seal all three points.
