    Wingate & Finchley

Isthmian Premier

Wingate and Finchley took their first point of 2020 with a 0-0 draw against Cray Wanderers.

The Blues went the whole of December without a win so, despite the lack of goals, the importance of this point on the road against a playoff contender cannot be understated.

Half-chances fell for both sides in the opening stages but in truth the match was a game of two goalkeepers.

For the hosts, the pick of the bunch was a last-minute, point-blank save from Lewis Carey, to deny the Blues what looked like a certain winner via the head of Sean Grace.

In the visitors’ net, Shane Gore was at full-stretch to prevent Tom Murphy snatching all three points from the edge of the box deep into injury-time.

Wingate now have two home games as they look to haul themselves off the foot of the Isthmian Premier League table.
