The first half proved to be a tough assignment for Brian Barry-Murphy’s side, but we eventually unlocked the Crystal Palace defence towards the end of the half.
After the restart, some neat build up play by the forward line, lead to Borges holding up the ball up before playing through Tom Galvez, who fired at goal and scored his first goal for the EDS.
Borges, who was menacing down Palace’s left all afternoon, then picked out his opposite winger Dire Mebude down the right, and his half volley bounced into the back of net, to give us a comfortable lead.
And City were still in the mood for more, as Kian Breckin found himself in acres of space on the edge of the box and hit a beautiful left-footed effort that nestled into the bottom corner.
With just under five minutes to play, Oscar Bobb added his name to the scoresheet, as Mebude pulled it back for the young Norwegian, who coolly slotted it home in the six-yard box.
