Bostik Premier: Wingate & Finchley 2 Carshalton Athletic 0
Wingate & Finchley gave their supporters an early Christmas present with a fine 2-0 win at home to Carshalton Athletic on Saturday.
Glen Little saw his improving team keep another clean sheet and strike once in each half to earn a seventh Bostik Premier win of the campaign.
A difficult match had been anticipated for the hosts, but the Blues opened the scoring in the 38th minute when David Manu controlled a high ball, dribbled into the area and added an impressive finish.
It remained 1-0 until half time, and on the hour mark Wingate were handed the chance to double their lead when Rob Laney was fouled inside the area.
