Gary McCann’s team benefited from a late goal on Saturday, but it cost them last night against league leaders Dulwich

Hendon host Slough Town this weekend in the third qualifying round of the FA Trophy looking to make the most of home advantage.

Saturday’s match will be the Greens ninth consecutive fixture in all competitions at Silver Jubilee Park.

On Tuesday, Gary McCann’s side hosted Bostik Premier leaders Dulwich Hamlet and were left disappointed to only draw 3-3.

An action-packed start saw Niko Muir fire Hendon ahead with six minutes gone before Ashley Carew levelled with quarter of an hour played.

Dave Diedhiou restored the hosts lead two minutes later before a Muir penalty in the 43rd minute made it 3-1 at half time.

It seemed Hendon were on course to stun the pace-setters, but Carew grabbed his second of the game nine minutes from time before Ricky Hayles equalised for the visitors in the 90th minute to ensure it ended 3-3.

McCann’s men stay sixth in the table with 32 points after snatching a point of their own at the weekend at home to Burgess Hill Town.

Diedhiou opened the scoring on the stroke of half time, but late goals from Aaron Smith-Joseph and Pat Harding turn the game on its head with seconds remaining.

But with Hendon needing a hero, up stepped Zak Joseph to curl home a free kick deep into stoppage time.

After two Bostik Premier draws, Greens will look to get back to winning ways this Saturday when Evo-Stik League South Premier Division outfit Slough visit Silver Jubilee Park.
