Kingstonian preview

Wingate & Finchley travel to Kingstonian Monday evening in the hope of securing their first win under Keith Rowland. After the goalless draw at the weekend against Grays Athletic, the Blues now haven't won since beating Staines Town, 2-1, on the 19thDecember with a dramatic late finish. The hosts will be high in confidence coming into this game after winning their last three games in all competitions, prior to getting a rest at the weekend after their game against Enfield Town was postponed. From 28 games, The K's hold a record of fourteen wins, eight losses, and six draws. Totalling 48 points so far over the season, the home crowd will be eager for their team to pull away from Rowlands' side who themselves have 44 points from 30 games. Kingstonian enjoy playing at the Kingsmeadow Stadium, having only dropped points on four occasions from twelve league games, winning the remaining eight. Their last outing saw them topple Needham Market by a score of 4-2, after trailing 2-0. After Rowland was delighted his Wingate side kept a clean sheet in the aforementioned last outing, the Blues' tactician will be hoping his side can go one further and collect a massive three points. From fourteen away games, having only accumulated maximum points on six occasions, the odds are significantly in the favour of the home side. Though with the experience of Ahmet Rifat back in the back four, Wingate should be confident of expressing themselves up front. Earlier this season, Wingate started the season in flying form and their performance at the Harry Abrahams Stadium against their opposition, saw them complete one of their best in a 2-1 win, with top scorer Billy Healey grabbing both on the day. However, you'll have to go back as far as the 2012/13 season when the Blues last won at the Kingsmeadow, thus the away support will feel it's about time their side changed that record. With both teams pushing for a place in the play-offs, they will know that neither can afford to drop anymore points. With Kingstonian in eighth, Wingate in eleventh, it has all the makings of an enthralling game. Preview by Khalid Karimullah
