Isthmian Premier: Lewes 1 Wingate & Finchley 2

Wingate & Finchley ended an eight game winless run in the league as they sealed a 2-1 victory over Lewes.

Goals from Charlie Ruff and Henry Ochieng sealed the three points for Spencer Knight's team despite a late fight back from the hosts at The Dripping Pan.

Boss Knight added a new signing in striker Alex Read to bolster their options in attack ahead of the clash.

The visitors got themselves off to a dream start as Charlie Ruff raced forward and fired an effort into the bottom left corner to give them a lead three minutes into the game.

Midfielder Henry Ochieng then doubled their lead in the 32nd minute as he headed home a cross at the back post.

They took the 2-0 lead into the half-time break but Lewes did claw one back in the 62nd minute thanks to Charlie Coppola.
