Redbridge 5 Arlesey Town 0

The end of the season cannot come soon enough for the Blues after Saturday's five-goal reverse in their penultimate game.

With Steve Dogbe, James Gray and player-manager Darran Hay suspended - and for Saturday's final home game against Wingate and Finchley - this result meant Arlesey made it 10 league matches without a win and just three points from a possible 30.

They came close to gaining a lead twice in the first half though.

Redbridge took the lead on the half hour when the Arlesey defence went missing for Bull, briefly a Blues player a couple of seasons ago, to score from the edge of the area.

The visitors nearly equalised on the stroke of half-time as a free-kick from Craig Rydeheard found Luke Beckett who headed over.

After the break, Arlesey went to pieces and conceded three goals in five minutes.

In the 51st minute, Offiola ran on to a Bull through ball and lobbed Jack Rashid.

Three minutes later, Hann found the net from fully 30 yards.

Skeritt slotted home the fourth from close range to round off a dreadful defensive period.

And Bradbury added the fifth with six minutes to go to complete the rout and inflict on Arlesey their biggest league defeat of the campaign.

Blues: Rashid, Clark, Bloss, K Fehmi, Beckett, Charamboulis, Barr, Tekell, Townsend, Barnes, Rydeheard. Subs: Mills, A Fehmi, Leon, Bliss.
