Greens hosts Rs this weekend to start busy run of matches in league

Hendon host Brightlingsea Regent in the their final Bostik Premier home game of 2017 on Saturday, which marks the start of a busy run of matches over the next couple of weeks.

After entertaining the Rs, the Greens are back in action on Boxing Day at Harrow Borough, with a 1pm kick off at the Rogers Family Stadium.

Gary McCann’s men then head for Harlow Town on December 30, before hosting Wingate & Finchley on New Year’s Day.

It will be a tough run for the Silver Jubilee Park side, but at least they will head into it buoyed by two wins over the past week.

On Tuesday, Hendon eased to a 3-0 success at Dorking Wanderers in the league despite playing the majority of the second half with 10 men in Surrey.

Niko Muir opened the scoring for the Greens in just the fourth minute at Westhumble as the visitors got off to the perfect start.

Michael Corcoran then doubled the lead for McCann’s men six minutes later as they took a two-goal lead into the break.

Just 19 minutes into the second half, though, the Silver Jubilee Park outfit had Harly Wise dismissed.

It did not prove too much of a hindrance, with Hendon adding a third in the 74th minute after Dorking defender Isaac Philpott turned the ball into his own net.

The league success followed a fine FA Trophy triumph for Hendon at the weekend as they shocked Bath City of the National League South 2-1 at home in the first round on Saturday.

The Greens took the lead in the 39th minute when Arthur Lee found the target, but the hosts were pegged back in the 47th minute.

McCann’s men, though, hit the front again in the 74th minute when Keagan Cole scored what proved to be the winner.

The reward for the Silver Jubilee Park outfit is a trip to National League title challengers Sutton United in the second round, with the tie to take place on the weekend of January 13.

Before all that, though, Hendon have a fair few league fixtures to get through, starting with the Brightlingsea match on Saturday.

When the sides met back in August, the Greens were beaten 2-1 on the road after conceding in the 90th minute.

McCann’s men will hope for revenge this weekend to keep their play-off hopes on track.
