Enfield Borough had to settle for a share of the points on Saturday as they drew 2-2 at home to Brimsdown in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One.

Samson Esan gave the away side the lead on the brink of half-time, but Ruben Carvalho drove the hosts level after the re-start.

Brandon McKenna’s free-kick turned the game around later in the second half, however the joy was short-lived as Andrew Rowe levelled.

Shaun Reece restored a number of familiar faces to the starting line-up for this game, with Guy Kiangabeni, Tage Kennedy and Thomas Opoku replacing Jan Yildiz, Richard Ajayi and Mohab Madkour.

Both sides traded blows in the early exchanges but it was Borough goalkeeper Brandon Walsh that was called into action first, tipping over Rowe’s header. Brimsdown stopper Ronnie Carroll then had to be alert to keep out Kennedy, who reacted to a quickly-taken free-kick.

As the half neared its end, Brimsdown took the lead when Esan found space on the corner of the penalty area and fired in an angled drive that Walsh got both hands to but couldn’t prevent from crossing the line.

Less than 10 minutes into the second half, Borough levelled the game when Carvalho took Opoku’s pass in his stride and powered the ball past Carroll to register his first goal for the club in just his second appearance.

Borough then completed a quick turnaround when McKenna swung in a free-kick from the left and although it appeared to be heading harmlessly towards Carroll, the ball slipped from his grasp and into the goal.

The hosts were unable to hold it though, and within minutes Rowe’s low cross evaded everybody and went in off the inside of the post.

Borough return to action tonight as they prepare to entertain Rayners Lane at the Maurice Rebak Stadium.
