Braintree fall to pre-season defeat at Leiston

Braintree Town’s latest pre-season outing ended with a 2-0 defeat for the Iron at Leiston.

The Ryman League premier division hosts won with a 37th minute strike by Joe Francis added to an 81st minute headed goal by Liam Barrett.

It was the second defeat Braintree have had during their summer fixtures following a 4-1 loss to Colchester United the week before.

They have beaten Southend United, a West Ham development side and Witham Town, though, and drawn 0-0 with Portsmouth in their other fixtures.

Braintree now continue their pre-season with a trip to Conference North side Histon on Tuesday (kick-off 7.45pm).
