Top draw Wingate
WINGATE & FINCHLEY boss Adam Lee hailed his team’s “never-say-die attitude” after the 1-1 home draw against Ryman League Division 1 North leaders AFC Hornchurch on Tuesday.
A late strike from Chris West, who converted Craig Ellis’ flick-on, gave the Abrahams Stadium team a vital point.
“When you are one goal down you are never out of a game,” Lee told JC Sport. “The boys stuck to their task and a never-say-die attitude earned one of our best results of the season.”
Wingate will be looking to extend their four-match unbeaten run tomorrow when they entertain bottom club Flackwell Heath.
“We must ensure we don’t slip up. I’m confident we will be professional and adopt the right approach.”
Currently lying 10th in the division, “it will be a tall order to claim a playoff place, but with 19 games remaining anything is possible. With the second best defensive record in the league we do not fear anyone.”
Elsewhere, Wales under-21 left-back Joe Jacobson has returned to Cardiff City following a loan spell at League 2 side Accrington Stanley where he scored once in seven appearances.
St Albans City’s Paul Hakim bagged his ninth goal of the season as the Conference strugglers beat Stevenage 2-1.
