Goals from Cole Brown and Laste Dombaxe saw Greens triumph on Saturday

Hendon boss James Gray was thrilled his side held firm to deny Farnborough and hold on to win 2-1 at home in the Evo-Stik South Premier South.

The Greens took the lead in the 35th minute through Cole Brown, before Laste Dombaxe doubled their advantage in the 66th minute.

Boro pulled one back 10 minutes from time through Conor Cullen, but the Silver Jubilee Park outfit held on to earn a second successive victory.

And Gray was delighted with the effort from his side after getting the better of the Hampshire club.

“It was hard work again. The lads really put a shift in and needed to because Farnborough are a good side,” Gray told the club website.

“In the first half, I think we played within ourselves a little bit and at half-time I said I thought we ere playing in fourth gear, but that if we could get up to fifth and sixth, we could probably have taken the game away from them.

“Fair play to Farnborough, they came out in the second half and made it difficult for us.

“I was pleased to get out of the game with three points because I could see the lads were tiring towards the last 10 minutes.

“They put their bodies on the line, we made a few substitutions and we managed to get over the line and get all three points.
