1 - 4
Clapton 1 – 4 Barking
Barking made a fantastic start at the Old Spotted Dog as Joe Pearman opened the scoring after 11 minutes before James Peagram doubled that advantage six minutes later.
Kieran English continued his good form by finding the net with half an hour played as Barking came in three up at the break.
Clapton boss Michael Walther would have wanted a response from his team, but it was Golby and Willis that were celebrating shortly after the second half had began.
Peagram doubled his tally for the evening by scoring again in the 51st minute to ensure the Blues would be taking the points back to Mayesbrook Park.
Tom Webb pulled one back for the Tons 13 minutes from time, but it was too little too late as Barking earned an excellent victory which takes them up to fifth in the table.
Blues don’t play again now until December 5 when they entertain Basildon United, who are second in the standings.
Clapton are eighth in the division after suffering their fourth loss of the campaign and will aim to bounce back on Saturday when they host FC Romania.
