Bostik Premier: Bishop’s Stortford 3 Wingate & Finchley 2

Wingate & Finchley suffered late heartbreak at Bishop’s Stortford last night to lose 3-2 in the Bostik Premier.

After going down 1-0 at home to Lewes at the weekend, Keith Rowland’s side were eager to respond and despite fighting back from two goals down, they lost late on.

It took only seven minutes for the first goal of the game to be scored and it went to the hosts after the evergreen Jamie Cureton, 43, netted from close range with a diving header.

Stortford doubled their advantage with 24 on the clock when good work by Alfie Mason set up former Queens Park Rangers striker Cureton for his second.

The visiting Blues did fight back, however, and reduced the deficit before the break when Marc Weatherstone headed home.

It boosted Wingate and they kicked on after the restart and levelled in the 65th minute when ex-Stortford midfielder Chase O’Neill tucked home from inside the area.

Both teams pushed for a winner now and in the second minute of stoppage time it did arrive and went to the hosts.

Mason managed to direct a looping header in at the back post to give interim player-boss Cureton a fourth consecutive win in charge of Stortford.

For Wingate, it was heartbreak in front of a crowd of 236 at the ProKit UK Stadium, but they could be proud of their second half display.

Unfortunately the Maurice Rebak Stadium club will not play again now until October 9 in the Middlesex Charity Cup.
