Wroxham relegation fight looks doomed
Redbridge scored four goals in the last 18 minutes as a spirited Wroxham suffered a second-half capitulation at Oakside.
Wroxham created more than enough chances to take the points home, but a lack of composure in front of goal ultimately led to their downfall.
Defeat leaves them with a nigh on impossible task if they are to avoid relegation as Ware and Barkingside both picked up crucial wins in their bids for survival.
Wroxham seemed to settle the better to the difficult conditions. A 26th minute throw then gave Wroxham their best opening of the half. Stephen Drake kept his composure to dink the ball behind the Rebridge back four and release Tim Cary but, from six yards, he could only place his effort off the left upright and out.
The second half continued in the same vein as Redbridge continued to play a high line and left themselves exposed in behind.

Jack Guyton missed a header from six yards and Remy Gordon spurned two good chances either side of the hour mark, one a header and the other a shot he dragged wide from a promising two-on-one situation as Wroxham failed to make their dominance count.
And Redbridge punished them with a stunning final 20 minutes. Emeil Aiken tapped in the first after good work from Daniel Francis, before the latter turned goalscorer two minutes later to calmly volley in and take the game away from Wroxham.
