Wingate & Finchley’s winless Ryman League run stretches to five games
Wingate & Finchley’s winless league run stretched to five games as two defeats in the space of four days sent them slipping down the Ryman League Premier Division.
The Blues were beaten 3-2 at home by Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday, and followed that with a 2-0 reverse at Bury Town on Tuesday evening.
Wingate have not won in the league since a 3-0 victory over neighbours Enfield a month ago, and although they remain eight points clear of the drop zone, it is a trend that Daniel Nielsen’s side need to reverse when they host Met Police on Saturday.
There were, at least, positive signs in Saturday’s clash with promotion-challenging Dulwich – which was witnessed by Arsenal Ladies star Rachel Yankey – despite Ian Daley’s first-minute goal for the visitors.
Erhun Oztumer made it 2-0 in the opening stages of the second half, before Leon Smith replied for Wingate and Dean Mason then rolled in an equaliser.

However, Ellis Green converted a cross in injury-time to deal a cruel blow to Wingate and give Dulwich a flattering victory.
On Tuesday, the Blues began brightly against Bury, with Mason firing a vicious cross through the goalmouth, but the home side quickly asserted themselves and took the lead when Ola Williams turned the ball, into his own net.
