Enfield Borough recovered from their damaging 4-0 midweek defeat at Risborough Rangers with a comfortable 2-0 success away at struggling Codicote in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One.

Isaac Stevens opened the scoring with a lovely chip before Tage Kennedy doubled the lead from the penalty spot later in the second half.

Borough made four changes to Saturday’s starting line-up, with Curtis Jackson, Frank Chandler, Adam Morris and Thomas Opoku coming into the side in place of Brandon Walsh, Treci Bambi, Jamiah Larence-Plentie and Alie Bangura, and also fielded five teenagers from the beginning, with another coming off the bench.

Most of the game’s early chances went the way of the hosts as Borough struggled to adapt to the windy conditions, but they failed to really test Curtis Jackson in the visiting goal.

The best chance of the half, though, fell Borough’s way as Opoku and Micah Jackson worked the ball out to Jean-Paul Antwi, and his cross was met with a backheel by Kennedy that struck the foot of the post, with the offside Opoku missing the target from the rebound.

Borough started to come into the game more after this and although they couldn’t find a breakthrough in the opening period, they found the opening goal soon after the interval.

Stevens was introduced in Morris’ place at half-time and he latched onto Jackson’s perfectly-weighted through-ball before clipping the ball over Brad Heaps and into the corner.

The away side continued to create more opportunities and they were soon rewarded with the second goal when Jackson was brought down in the penalty area, and Kennedy sent Heaps the wrong way to double the advantage and seal the points.

The win leaves Borough ninth in the table ahead of their game tonight, at home to Rayners Lane.
