AFC Sudbury head into tonight’s Ryman League Division One North away game at Waltham Forest, unbeaten in 15 league and cup games.
Two strikes gave them two single-goal victories in the space of 48 hours on Saturday and Monday, David Batch’s team defeating Tilbury and then Wroxham at home, their third and fourth league clean sheets in a row.
Against a defiant Tilbury side, the visitors reduced to 10 men as early at the eighth minute when Joe Nightingill was sent his marching orders for a foul on Ryan Henshaw.
Defender Jack Cawley caused the Tilbury defence problems from his long throws all afternoon and it was from one of these when, following a scramble, leading scorer James Baker, stabbed home his 21st goal of the season.
Baker looked to have doubled Sudbury’s lead when he had the ball in the net again after 32 minutes but it was ruled out for offside.

The second half continued in a similar vein with Sudbury doing most of the pressing but unable to turn their dominance into goals. The closest they came was when Payton Swatman was denied by the woodwork late on, with Michael Shinn also seeing his free-kick well saved by James Marable.
On Monday, Cawley hit the winner at home to Wroxham.
