Greens beat Thurrock 1-0 last weekend to make it four games without defeat in division

Hendon will bid to stretch their unbeaten run in the Bostik Premier to five matches when they host Lowestoft Town on Saturday.

The Greens have enjoyed a fruitful February so far in the league, going unbeaten against Burgess Hill Town, Dorking Wanderers, Leiston and Thurrock.

That run of form has helped Gary McCann’s men cement their place among the teams chasing a top five finish in the division this term.

Last weekend saw the Silver Jubilee Park outfit record a 1-0 success on their trip to Essex to face Thurrock.

The first half ended at Ship Lane ended goalless, though Hendon lost Keagan Cole to injury just before the interval.

Cole’s departure allowed Casey Maclaren to come on as a substitute and make his 350th appearance for the Greens, joining Dave Diedhiou as the only other current member of the squad to pass that milestone.

The breakthrough came for McCann’s men just seven minutes into the second half when Ashley Nathaniel-George found the target.

Though other chances followed, included one for Maclaren on his landmark day, the Silver Jubilee Park outfit were unable to add to their lead.

However, it did not matter much as Hendon held on for a third win in their last four league matches.

The win saw the Greens remain among the play-off places in the division, with a three-point lead over Staines Town who sit just outside the top five.

Against Lowestoft this weekend, though, McCann’s men will face a team in need of the points for a different reason.

Town are just seven points above the relegation zone and have played two games more than current bottom club Burgess Hill Town.

The Blues could do with all three points on Saturday to ease their relegation fears, so will push Hendon hard.

Saturday’s clash is the first of two meetings in the league between the sides in the space of just 10 days, with Hendon due to visit Lowestoft on March 6.

With the sides due to play each other twice in quick succession, the Greens will look to gain a psychological advantage on Saturday.
