A SPIRITED fightback was not enough to save Hendon from defeat on New Year's Day as they went down 3-2 at promotion rivals AFC Wimbledon.

The Greens, who were missing the in-form Wayne O'Sullivan through injury, fell behind just before half-time when Marc Leach was adjudged to have tripped Jon Main and Richard Wilmot was unable to keep out the same player's spot-kick.

Brian Haule was denied an equaliser by the Wimbledon goalkeeper and the score remained 1-0 until 20 minutes from time, when Tony Finn doubled the home side's advantage.

Substitute Mark DeBolla made it 3-0 soon afterwards, but the Hendon revival began three minutes later when Brian Haule headed home a corner.

A composed finish from Scott Shulton made it 3-2 and ensured a nervous finish for Wimbledon, who switched to a five-man defence as they clung on.

And the Greens almost claimed a share of the spoils in stoppage time when Davis Haule sent a curling effort towards the top right-hand corner - only for Wimbledon's Sam Hatton to launch himself at the ball and head clear.
