Forward netted late winner on Saturday as Stones tamed Hawks

Match-winner Abobaker Eisa says it was important Wealdstone returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory at home to Whitehawk in the National League South following their FA Cup disappointment the previous weekend.

Stones went into the clash with Hawks off the back of a 1-0 loss at Burgess Hill Town if the Bostik Premier in the FA Cup third qualifying round.

However, Bobby Wilkinson’s men put the cup exit behind them to beat the struggling Brighton club, with Eisa netting the winner two minutes from time.

The forward latched onto a powerful header from the halfway line from defender Jerome Okimo, before calmly slotting home, much to the delight of the Wealdstone fans.

But Eisa was equally pleased that the side were able to swiftly return to winning ways following their cup disappointment.

“It was good to bounce back from a loss last week with the win. We dug deep and it was a great win,” he told the club website.

“I saw that the defenders hadn’t seen me and I was coming from the left. I just gambled, took one touch and slotted it in.”
