Bostik Premier: Wingate & Finchley 1 Tooting & Mitcham United 1

Wingate & Finchley missed the chance to move up to fourth in the Bostik Premier after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Tooting & Mitcham United.

The Blues went into the match one point off the play-off places following Saturday’s 3-1 win over in-form Leatherhead.

From the off Wingate were made aware it would be a tricky encounter with Tooting, despite the visitors sitting near the bottom of the table.

It took the north Londoners until just before half time to break the deadlock at the Maurice Rebak Stadium.

Luke Ifil took a short free kick to Tommy Tejan-Sie and he turned away from his marker, picked out Marc Charles-Smith and the former Harrow Borough forward fired in the opener.

It remained 1-0 until the interval, but Tooting quickly equalised after the restart when Nathan Mavila diverted a cross into his own net with 50 on the clock.

The Blues pushed for a winner, but couldn’t break the away side down again and had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Wingate & Finchley: Gore; Williams, Humphrey, Vilcu, Mavila; Mulley, Ifil (Monville 68); Tejan-Sie, Laney (Dickson 74), Beckles-Richards; Charles-Smith (Obafemi 81).

Unused substitutes: Pattie, Eales.

Attendance: 111.
