12:06pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in Sport
Wingate & Finchley claimed their second away league win of the season as they defeated Harrow Borough 2-0.
The opening 45 minutes was closely contested and Harrow missed an early chance as Simeon Akinola headed over from close range.
Leon Smith shot narrowly wide for Wingate before Michael Peacock headed over Rhys Murrell-Williamson’s cross.
The second period remained close but the deadlock was broken with 15 minutes remaining.
A well-struck shot from the edge of the area hit both posts and rebounded into the path of Ahmet Rifat, who tapped Wingate in front.
Harrow came close to equalising as debutant Gareth Chendlik rattled the woodwork but the victory was secured two minutes from time as Smith out-paced the home side’s defence and coolly finished.
A late effort on goal from Akinola went narrowly wide and the Blues saw out the game to claim an important three points.
