In-form Hendon will look to make it five wins in a row and end 2017 on a high when they travel to Harlow Town on Saturday.

Gary McCann’s Greens are then due to start the new year with a home match against north London neighbours Wingate & Finchley on Monday, having enjoyed a Boxing Day derby win at Harrow Borough.

Hendon had romped to a 6-0 victory when the two sides met at Silver Jubilee Park back in August and took the lead seven minutes before half time when Josh Walker’s effort was deflected into his own net by Chinua Cole.

The second half was only three minutes old when Dave Diedhiou doubled their advantage, with Walker making it 3-0 just past the hour mark.

Walker then went on a mazy run seven minutes from time before he was brought down in the box by Cole, allowing Niko Muir to step up and convert from the penalty spot for his 26th goal in all competitions this season.

The win moved Hendon up to third place in the Bostik Premier Division table, following their 4-2 home win over Brightlingsea Regent on Saturday.

Keagan Cole opened the scoring on 10 minutes, but Billy Hunt got Brightlingsea back on terms with a brilliant strike which gave Tom Lovelock no chance.

Diedhiou ran on to a through ball to slot past Harry Palmer and restore Hendon’s lead in the second half and the home side went 3-1 up when Muir fired into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

Walker added a fourth for the Greens, before Hunt grabbed a consolation for Regent with almost the last kick of the match.

Success came less than 48 hours after striker Kezie Ibe left the club, having scored 47 goals in 172 appearances since joining from Basingstoke Town in 2014.

McCann said: “Kezie needs to be playing regularly and we are unable to offer him that at the current time.

“He is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet and has served myself and Hendon fantastically. Kezie goes with our good wishes and with huge thanks for all his efforts during his time with us.”
