Wingate & Finchley (A) - 18th November 2023

By Josh Cole

After the postponement of Tuesday nights Velocity Trophy fixture, we are back in league action on Saturday as we travel to Wingate & Finchley for matchday #14!

Last Saturday it was more heartbreak for the ‘Gate as we conceded a last gasp equaliser at Champion Hill. Read the match report from that game by clicking here.

OPPONENTS SEASON SO FAR

Wingate have had a much-improved campaign than last, as they sit in 8th place, one point outside of the playoff places. After getting beaten on opening day by Folkestone Invicta, the boys from North London went four games undefeated winning three and drawing one, before they lost to Hornchurch and Hashtag back-to-back. They followed up those losses with three wins on the spin but then lost their next three games until they beat Lewes 1-2 last time out. The Blues’ games are certainly goals galore with Wingate & Finchley conceding the most goals in the league so far with 30 but have also scored 26, putting them 3rd for goals scored.
