Hendon dropped points at home for the first time all season as Kingstonian ran out 3-1 winners at Silver Jubilee Park, to drop the Greens six points from the top of the table.

There were to be few complaints about the result on a rare off day for Gary McCann's men, too.

Hendon started the game poorly, despite fielding the same starting line-up which had beaten Kings Langley in the previous game, and came up against a Kingstonian side quick on the break.

They could've been behind inside three minutes, when Alec Fiddes' shot was saved by Tom Lovelock.

But it was not long before they did trail. Dave Diedhiou's pass was intercepted and Reece Grant put the visitors ahead from Tom Derry's pass.

Hendon weathered a storm of chances from Kingstonian largely gifted by their own wastefulness before levelling up as half-time approached from a familiar source.

Niko Muir was played in by Zak Joseph, and after beating one man he drove the ball home from the angle.

Shortly after half-time history repeated itself thanks to another slow start. A shot was saved by Lovelock but the rebound was perfectly placed for Taylor Miles to finish comfortably.

With an hour gone Hendon had two chances to draw level, with Joseph first forcing a save and then hitting a post in the space of several minutes.

But as the game headed for its final throes, Kingstonian wrapped up the points when Derry was played in and when one-on-one with Lovelock, he beat the advancing keeper and slotted home.

Hendon: Lovelock, Eggleton, Murphy, Diedhiou (Campbell-Young, 83), Bray, Lee, Uchechi, Ball (Cole, 72), Joseph, Muir, Nathaniel-George (Ibe, 72).

Not used: Wise, McLean.
