Enfield Borough came from behind to get the better of Saffron Walden with a 3-1 friendly win on Saturday.

A brace from Bruno Tavares and one for Blessing Tshibikubla meant that Steven Carvell’s early opener was of little consequence, as Borough took the victory.

The sides were level at half-time after Carvell made the most of an error by Kofi Appiah, whose pass was too weak, allowing the striker to nip in and fire into the bottom corner past the sprawling Dragos Steianoaica with only three minutes on the clock.

Tavares had Enfield back on terms mid-way through the first period after latching onto Huseyin Ombasii’s threaded pass and beating the onrushing Reece Paine.

Just four minutes after the half-time break, Tavares struck again to put the visitors in front.

Martin Llewellyn’s attempted headed clearance was misdirected and the lurking striker was able to round Paine before stroking the ball into the empty net.

Tshibikubla then swept home from a Brandon Folly pass into the six-yard-box to wrap up the victory for Borough. Joint-manager Mani Asare described the win as a “benchmark” performance.
