Hendon completed back-to-back victories for the first time this season with a hard fought victory over basement boys Temple Fortune.

Strikes from Ben David, James Neidle and an own goal cemented the Hustlers' third win of the season.

The home side got off to a great start when Glen Turner charged forward from left back and centred for David to nod in from close range.

It was 2-0 not long after when David's somewhat weak free-kick was fumbled by the Fortune keeper, and Neidle was there to score his first goal for the club.

Fortune pulled a goal back when David Sawyer headed in a corner, but the Hustlers regained their two-goal advantage when a free-kick was eventually turned into his own net by a Fortune defender.

Fortune piled on the pressure in the second half, but the home side's backline remained extremely solid and limited them to only a few chances, while Ben Glekin hit the post and Ben David missed a one-on-one to put further gloss on the scoreline.

Hendon boss Adam Glekin told JC Sport: "It was a really tough game this morning - Temple Fortune are a strong, physical side and they bossed the game in the second half.

"I don't think we were at our best but we battled extremely well and our defence was absolutely magnificent, we have them to thank for the three points.

"As much as I'd like to claim that the formation we've played the last 2 weeks has been a managerial masterstroke, we kind of stumbled upon it but we'll take the 6 points out of 6!"

TFFC manager Jonathan Cohen said:: "This was another very disappointing result. We had an awful start and it was a case of chasing the game after that.

"However, the second half performance was encouraging and I think we were unlucky not to get something out of the game.

"Sooner or later with some breaks which we're not getting, I am confident we will turn this around."
