Hendon extended their winning run in the Isthmian League Premier Division South to four games after a 2-0 win away at Wimborne Town.

The success moves the Greens above Wimborne in the table by a point, and they are now level on 30 with both Blackfield & Langley and Harrow Borough.

Liam Brooks struck with only a minute on the clock to put Hendon ahead and Joe White doubled their advantage just before the interval.

There was one forced change for the Greens as Tommy Smith dropped out through injury, which saw Solomon Sambou come into midfield and Tommy Brewer drop back into defence.

Even with Hendon’s early lead, it was Wimborne who attacked first when Rihards Matrevics claimed a teasing low cross.

However, seconds later, the Greens edged in front when Shaun Lucien’s cross bounced off the crossbar and into the path of Brooks who tapped it over the line.

Despite a lack of chances following the opener, Hendon remained well on top.

Lucien shot straight at the Wimborne keeper when well placed and Percy Kiangebeni could not keep his header down from Lucien’s cross.

Just on the stroke of half-time though, Hendon did double their lead when Brooks seized upon a poor backpass, rounded the keeper and squared for White, who dinked the ball back over the keeper and into the corner.

Wimborne improved in the second half but Hendon survived numerous waves of pressure in the early parts to preserve their lead.

Aiden Shepherd had the best opportunity to pull one back but he was brilliantly denied by a diving save from Matrevics.

Next up for the Greens is a home game against strugglers Yate Town, out of the drop zone on goal difference, this Saturday at 3pm.
