The Blues entertain Needham Mark this weekend before a short trip to rivals Hendon on Monday
Wingate & Finchley will look to end 2017 on a high when Needham Market visit the Maurice Rebak Stadium this weekend.
Keith Rowland’s team go into the contest off the back of two encouraging results over the festive period.
Last Saturday, the Blues edged a seven-goal thriller at Margate in front of 536 spectators despite trailing 2-0 in the first half.
Goals from Marc Charles-Smith, a brace from Rob Laney and an 89th-minute effort from Luke Ifil earned a 4-3 victory.

The only sour note was the red cards handed to Claudiu Vilcu and Ahmet Rifat in stoppage time.
After that victory, Wingate then held play-off rivals Staines Town to a goalless draw on Boxing Day.
