Braintree Iron dogged out an important away win 0 -1 at Bocking Social in what was a very scrappy game not helped by a heavy pitch. The Irons defence and goalkeeper dominated throughout with a second clean sheet in a row limiting the opposition to few chances and a lot of hopeful long balls. Lewis Soraf was impressive in midfield earning the man of the match award from his team mates. Mitch Simmons continued to impress up front posing the Bocking defence a constant threat with some quality touches and great pace. Kieron Dodge was the Amber and Blacks goalscorer which was well deserved for his all round performance and following a spell of substitute appearances. The Iron continue to climb the League table making full use of their games in hand.
