WINGATE & Finchley brought to a halt a dif­fi­cult run by pick­ing up a well-de­served point.

Irnti Ra­pai re­cy­cled to fel­low debu­tant Layne Eadie, whose pre­ci­sion cross in­side the early min­utes evaded Marc-Charles Smith at the back post.

Reece Beck­les-Richards fed Afo­labi Obafemi on the edge of the box, who couldn’t turn his shot on tar­get. Charles-Smith con­nected with Jack Humphrey’s header but his strike was sent wide.

The vis­i­tors, against the run of play, came close to find­ing the open­ing goal in the 44th minute, how­ever Reise Al­las­sani fired wide across goal. On the stroke of half time, Nyren Clu­nis burst to­wards the box but hit past the left post.

Fol­low­ing the restart, Ash­ley Carew took aim from the edge of the box but Shane Gore tipped wide. Obafemi back-heeled to Freddy Mon­cur in­side the box but he couldn’t get enough power on his shot.

Luke Ifil broke down the right to the by­line and clipped to­wards Charles-Smith, who was un­able to turn the ball on tar­get.

With the last mean­ing­ful at­tack of the game, Clu­nis aimed for the far cor­ner from the in­side right but couldn’t beat Gore, who was down quickly to make the stop.
