Billericay nearly got an early lead as Javaun Splatt, following a brilliant piece of skill, saw his volley fly over the crossbar. John Ufuah was a bright spark from the very start and his shot rattled a post after 22 minutes. Moments later, the visitors had a chance to open the scoring when a cross from Nick Dembele on the left went across the box, but they were unable to convert.

Ufuah hit the woodwork again minutes before the first half came to an end, ensuring the score was level heading into the second half. One minute into the second half and the Blues took the lead as Bradlev Stevenson’s inch-perfect pass put Ufuah through on goal and he passed to Eze Ebuzoeme to slot home.

With 53 minutes played, Alfie Cerulli’s strike was expertly saved by Ted Collins on the left-hand side. One became two after 64 minutes. The ball hit the referee who stopped play for a drop ball. Brad Stevenson chipped the ball over the defence; Marvel Ekpiteta reacted first and netted.

Potters Bar pushed for a consolation late on, but the Blues kept a clean sheet, meaning they move up to ninth in the table.
