Wingate and Finchley have not looked back after two defeats opened their league season last month, with four striaght wins rocketing them up to sixth in the Ishtmian Premier League table.

The Blues were 2-0 winners at home to Burgess Hill Town in front of a tiny crowd of 74 on Saturday, but those inside the Maurice Rebak Stadium were treated to a late show from Rob Laney.

His double in the final half-hour turned Wingate's domination into a deserved three points, with the first a bullet header from Spencer McCall's corner.

And he curled in a second in injury time when McCall again picked the striker out.

Marc Charles-Smith and Sean Cronin were off-target in the early stages with Wingate in full control from the off, before Reece Beckles-Richards forced Max Hunter into the first save of the game.

If he thought Wingate's wayward finishing would continue, he was sadly mistaken - and would be required to keep the visitors in the game on a number of occasions.

Beckles-Richards did give him little trouble when he scuffed an effort wide following a jinking run, but shortly after half-time Ben Pattie forced Hunter into a wonderful finger-tip save to keep the score at 0-0.

McCall, who had scored from a dead ball in the FA Cup win over Hendon last week, tried to recreate that goal but found Hunter's reflexes again equal to his effort.

But the goalkeeper's resistance would not last much longer, as Laney's powerful header at the near post from McCall's corner gave him no chance of saving it.

The two combined 10 minutes later from open play, only for Laney to volley McCall's cross over the bar.

Burgess Hill had not registered a shot on target by this point - and finally made Shane Gore earn his wages when James Richmond's header forced him into a save.

In the last minute, Laney made it two with a curling effort from McCall's path, to seal a victory which had looked in little doubt throughout.
