Hendon manager Gary McCann felt his side should have been “out of sight” at half-time of their 1-0 victory over Bognor Regis Town at Earlsmead on Monday evening.

McCann told the club’s website: “We could, and maybe should have been out of sight at half-time. But so long as the game was only 1-0, there is always going to be a nervous time near the end.

“I am very pleased with the win, especially back-to-back home games. Last season, our home form was nowhere near as good as our form away. I want us to be much stronger at home.”

The Greens’ best chance of the first half fell to Lee O’Leary from 12 yards after Kezie Ibe was fouled by Bognor goalkeeper Chris Winterton. However the midfielder blasted the penalty over.

Casey McClaren secured the points from close range five minutes after half-time though to move Hendon into fifth in the Ryman Premier.

On Saturday, Hendon secured their second victory of the season with a 3-1 win at VCD Athletic.

Ibe netted on the stroke of half-time before Sam Murphy fired into an empty net from 35 yards.

Ahmed Adean’s free-kick reduced the arrears, before Aaron Morgan secured the points for Hendon.

Wingate & Finchley continued their encouraging start to the new season with a 4-0 win over Bury Town on Tuesday, scoring three times in the first seven minutes.

Summer signing David Knight continued his hot streak by netting twice either side of Karl Oluyide’s goal. Knight then completed his hat-trick after the break.

Three days earlier, the Blues had drawn 0-0 at East Thurrock United.
